From the 19-25th April, Blueberry employees took on a challenge to collectively reach a target distance of 200 km in one week to raise money for the charity In2Science. Our active bunch answered this call by walking, running, swimming, cycling, rowing and kayaking and went above and beyond our target to reach a final distance of 546 km! In doing so we have raised £1,412 in sponsorship for In2Science, who improve access and remove barriers to STEM careers to young people from low income and disadvantaged backgrounds. Blueberry will top up this fundraise to donate a total of £2,000 for this great cause!
Blueberry will also join the mentorship program run by In2Science later this year, to mentor Year 12 students in the North West – a program which has already had great success in other parts of the UK where 83% of students who have taken part have progressed to University. We’re proud to contribute to this great cause and help the next generation of scientists, engineers and mathematicians.
