LEADING technology PR agency Whiteoaks International has become the latest business to sign up to support Ark Day.
The company, based in Hook, announced that it has chosen Ark Cancer Centre Charity as its charity partner – and the team will be kicking off their campaign on Ark Day.
The day will start with Whiteoaks’ CEO, James Kelliher, being among the players taking part in a round of sunrise golf at Dummer Golf Club.
Then between 9am and 4.30pm, employees will take turns to cycle on a static bike ride, with a target to cycle 70 miles during the day.
The team can also choose to run or walk some of the distance, with a variety of sweepstakes for the fastest mile, the fastest 15-minute slot, the fastest time to reach the halfway point – and more.
The Whiteoaks team will also be encouraging Hook residents to donate at Tesco in the town, and will be running a cake and savoury bake sale to raise additional money.
The number one B2B PR agency will also invite the other businesses based at Form 1 in Bartley Wood Business Park, Hook, to get involved.
Suzanne Griffiths, Managing Director at Whiteoaks International, said:
“We moved to our home in Hook, Hampshire in March 2018 and, just over a year on, it’s the right time for us to choose and support a local charity.
“Ark Cancer Centre Charity is fundraising for a much-needed, dedicated cancer support centre at Basingstoke hospital with a £5 million target. We’re excited to help the charity move closer to its goal and can’t wait to get things started with Ark Day next month.”
Merv Rees, Ark Cancer Centre Charity trustee and renowned liver cancer surgeon who is a driving force behind the cancer treatment centre project, said:
“Ark is proud and honoured to have been chosen as a charity partner by the team at Whiteoaks International, and we are delighted that the team will be kicking off their campaign on Ark Day.”
