The 50km Thames Path Challenge saw Bedford businesses Smarta Healthcare and The Mobility Physio raise £500 for Carers in Bedfordshire.
The £1,000 funds raised were split equally between two charities – Carers in Bedfordshire and the Tibbs Dementia Foundation.
CEO at Bedfordshire Pharmacy and Health Clinic at Smarta Healthcare, Harjinder Singh, and the Founder of The Mobility Physio, Nadia Kopec, had come together and walked the 50-kilometre Thames Path Challenge.
The Thames Path Challenge followed London’s iconic river from Fulham to Runnymede. This was the duo’s second charity challenge, as they had previously cycled the 100km London 2 Brighton challenge together in 2019.
Harjinder said: “It was an honour to complete this challenge with Nadia, to show our support for the incredible work of Carers in Bedfordshire and Tibbs Dementia Foundation.
“Nadia and I both agree that at a time when the cost of living is going up, local charities like this are especially deserving of support for their work at the grassroots level.
“They are fantastic at reaching individuals within our community that really need their help.”
Carers in Bedfordshire supports unpaid carers of all ages across Bedfordshire to feel recognised, respected, and supported in their role. We work in partnership with Tibbs Dementia Foundation to support people living with dementia and their families.
Nadia Kopec added: “The amazing support Harjinder and I received for the Thames Path Challenge is really inspiring, and means we can help the work of Carers in Bedfordshire and Tibbs Dementia Foundation.
“They both do so much for our community here in Bedford, we’re over the moon to have hit our fundraising target for them! I’d like to give a huge thank you to everyone who donated.”
