When most people reach 65, they settle for the quiet life – not so for Kevin Dickinson, commercial manager for Wirral-based composite door experts Vista Panels.
Deciding to celebrate his landmark birthday by doing something new and worthwhile, Kevin registered to take part in Liverpool’s ‘Rock ‘N’ Roll’ half-marathon, due to take place on Sunday 29th May to raise money for the SSAFA, the UK’s oldest military charity.
Colleagues at Vista head office, keen to support Kevin’s charitable endeavours, soon volunteered to run the Rock and Roll 5k themselves – and together the Xtreme Team have set themselves a fundraising target of £2k.
“I’m incredibly proud of my head office team for taking the ‘Rock ‘N’ Roll’ challenge”, said Vista MD Keith Sadler. “They’re running for a fantastic cause and I’d urge anyone who wants to contribute to support them by visiting Kevin’s Just Giving page.”
The SSAFA is a charity that seeks to recognise the huge debt of gratitude we owe to those prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice to ensure our collective security. Established 130 years ago, the SSAFA is dedicated to providing life-long support to soldiers, sailors, airmen and women and their families.
