In the run up to Christmas, Geiger members of staff took part in the Walk to Maine by Christmas virtual challenge to raise funds for the charity Mind.
They were happy to report that with their supporters’ help they managed to exceed their target of £1,000 – Geiger raised £1,550 just in time for Christmas by ‘walking’ all the way to the Geiger HQ in America. A total of 3,178 miles.
In the end not only did the team make it in time, they managed to walk an extra 55 miles, so are now on their way back to England!
The Geiger team would love to express their gratitude to their employees, suppliers and followers for their perseverance, moral support and donations.
Vicky Kinasz, managing director of Geiger, said: “Amazing effort by our team, well done everyone! It’s been fantastic to see that everyone positively embraced the challenge and supported such a great cause.
“We believe we have a responsibility to give back to the community whenever possible and we were glad to have an opportunity to provide help to those who need it while staying active ourselves.”
The initiative strengthened Geiger’s team spirit and now the US team are ‘walking’ from Maine to Middlesex to ‘see’ their UK colleagues by Valentine’s Day.
