Altrincham-based creative marketing agency Sunny Thinking has raised over £1700 for the Stroke Association after taking part in 10 charity challenges throughout 2018 to mark its 10th birthday.
Each year, the team donate time and a percentage of profits to a chosen charity and for 2018 Sunny Thinking chose the Stroke Association. Jonathan Reed, managing director of the agency, has witnessed first-hand the devastation the condition can cause after his sister-in-law suffered a severe stroke at the age of 41.
“It just made sense to choose the Stroke Association for this year’s charity,” explained Jonathan.
“It’s a cause very close to my heart and one that we were eager to support. To coincide with our 10th birthday we decided to do 10 different events and activities. As a team, we’ve done everything from a sponsored silence and bake-off. To slightly more challenging things, like Tough Mudder and the Manchester to Blackpool Bike Rid. We’ve climbed Snowdon and even got the kids up Kinder Scout. The one I’m most proud of is doing the Leicester half marathon with my mum, who is 75 years old and a bit of a speed demon. The original target was £1,000 so we’re delighted to have smashed that.” he continued.
