Foodbuy extends charity partnership with Duchenne UK

21/12/2018 - 11:08
Procurement organisation, Foodbuy, which is part of Compass Group, has announced the extension of its charity partnership with Duchenne UK for a further two years.

The last 12 months has seen Foodbuy raise £135,000 for Duchenne UK, a charity working towards accelerating treatments and finding a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

The fundraising success to date has been a result of Foodbuy colleagues carrying out a number of personally challenging, fun and inspirational events, including hosting a gala dinner, completing the three peaks challenge, running half marathons, holding culinary masterclasses, organising bake sales and through participating in Duchenne UK’s flagship event, the Duchenne Dash.

The Duchenne Dash is a gruelling 24-hour bike ride from London to Paris, and in 2018 Foodbuy had a team of 11 amateur riders take part alongside 160 others from across the UK. The cyclists covered more than 200 miles, passing through some of the most rural areas of France before finishing up the Champs-Élysées and the Eiffel Tower

Ian Murphy, managing director of Foodbuy said: “We are thrilled to officially extend our charity partnership with Duchenne UK. We have a special connection with Duchenne UK, a charity that is very close to our hearts. We hope to raise a lot of money to help find a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy."
