Generation Media team completes Vitality Big Half

Published on: 14th March 2019

Generation Media braved the wind and rain this weekend as part of its ongoing fundraising for the Toy Trust.

Four members of the Generation Media team – Jonathan Chambers, Josh Quirke, Imogen Llewellyn and Jacob Gardner – took part in The Vitality Big Half on Sunday 10th March. They were joined at the start line by illustrious names such as Sir Mo Farah, David Weir CBE and Charlotte Purdue –  although that was the last they would see of the world class runners.

Fundraising to date, which began in November with Generation Media’s KidCon18, has surpassed £2,000 and will continue through to the Toy Trust Big Challenge 2019. The company aims to have at least 10 participants in this year’s Big Challenge events, ranging from the 5km walk to the triathlon.

Lisa Morgan, managing director, commented: “We are very proud of our team’s passion and achievement in signing up and completing the event. Generation Media invests heavily to support relevant causes that help children and young people in need. As well as our activity with the Toy Trust we strive to support colleagues both internally and across the industry in their fundraising efforts.”

The Toy Trust Big Challenge 2019 will take place on Saturday 8th June at Wet n Wild in Wallingford, Oxfordshire.
