On a Mission: to Lapland and back before the Christmas Holidays!

We’re excited to announce that Farrat have embarked on a virtual expedition to Santa’s Village in Lapland, all in aid of charity.

Our team and their families will be running, jogging, cycling, walking, swimming, stretching (and some of our younger kids are even crawling) the round-trip distance of 6041km from our Altrincham head office to Rovenaniemi and back.

This virtual style ‘fun run’ is taking part between November 23 and December 21, which gives 28 days for everyone involved to reach Lapland village, pick-up and bring back everyone’s presents just in time for Christmas. Farrat will track each fundraisers progress through the Farrat Fundraising Club setup on popular tracking app Strava, which will accumulate all the miles put in by individuals and their household teams.

Along the way we’re hoping to raise funds for five charities nominated by our team –
Alzheimer’s Society
, National Deaf Children’s Society, the PSP Association, The Christie Fund and local community group G-Force, who work to support disadvantaged children, young adults and adults within the local Altrincham area.

It’s been a difficult 2020 for many, so we’re looking to raise a little Christmas cheer as well as some funds for the very worth causes. If you would like to sponsor our team, please donate via our JustGiving page here.

Farrat will be matching every pound the team raises, so wish us luck!
