Cambridge/Pullach, March 10, 2013 — Andy Beeching, Head of Asset Control and Pool Optimisation at IFCO UK, took part in this year’s Cambridge ½ marathon to support the Tower Hamlets Food Bank within the scope of the WORLDWIDE RESPONSIBILITY.
The manager of the international logistics service provider for environmentally friendly transport of fruit and vegetables ran the 21.1 kilometres in 1:52:14. After having practiced for months and reaching his personal goal - to complete the run in under 2 hours - Andy Beeching happily pointed out the reasons for the participation: “The main idea behind the run was to raise awareness for the initiative WORLDWIDE RESPONSIBILITY, the Tower Hamlets Food Bank and the fact that a lot of people have to fight hunger. Especially districts in the Eastern part of London have to deal with those issues. That’s why I wore the Tower Hamlets T-Shirt today.” Supporters gave over £ 550 to the Foodbank through Andy Beeching’s fundraising page.
“The Tower Hamlets Foodbank urgently needs help in every possible way to run its daily business, therefore anything that raises awareness helps”, said Andy Beeching. Last Christmas, the Tower Hamlets Foodbank also received a refrigerated van and free reusable crates for transporting food to those in need. These crates are serviced, washed and replaced free of charge by IFCO.
WORLDWIDE RESPONSIBILITY helps to help.
