At Postgrad Solutions we think it is really important to show support for charity.
Our chosen charity is Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). This charity raises money to enable Great Ormond Street Hospital to provide world-class care for its patients and their families. The money also helps the children’s hospital pioneer new treatments and cures for childhood illness.
Every year Postgrad Solutions has a fundraising week where each member of our team takes part in a sponsored event to raise funds for our chosen charity. As well as this, we will make a contribution to GOSH from our profits during the month that our fundraising week takes place. Postgrad Solutions also makes a regular monthly donation to this charity. Our target in 2010 was to raise £2,000 for GOSH - we ended up raising £2,176.

Sam Ross and Sandy Bhangal spent 5 hours completing the 15-mile long Jubilee Walk around London, ending up outside Great Ormond Street Hospital. So far they have raised over £365!
“We had a great day walking around the city and are delighted to be able to contribute to such a great cause.”

Mike Dingle completed the Plymouth Half Marathon in an impressive 1 hour 51 minutes. This involved running for 13.1 miles, and according to Mike it is one of the hardest half marathons to do as it is rather hilly!
“It was really tough and afterwards my knees felt like they'd been hit by a cricket bat! It was however really rewarding to finish it and to raise money for such a great charity.”

Katherine Mann and Charlotte King cycled from London to Windsor in 4 hours. Their planned 37-mile route was slightly longer than they anticipated as they took a wrong turn at Egham and ended up battling their way up a rather large hill for no reason... Katherine's attempt to get into the Duke of York's residence was probably the highlight of the trip! They have raised £830.
“We really enjoyed doing the cycle ride - it was a lovely scenic trip along the River Thames and through Windsor's Great Park... Although the unnecessary detour up a huge hill almost resulted in a complete sense of humour failure! We are really pleased to have been able to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital.”

Rob Houghton swam the length of the English Channel (yes that is an impressive 21 miles) in a swimming pool in just 11 hours and 45 minutes. He's now known as 'The Fish', although he's unlikely to be going swimming again any time soon! Rob has raised £490.
“I take my hat off to anyone who has ever swam the English Channel - 21 miles is a fair way driving let alone swimming! These people have got to be bonkers as well as very fit to attempt this in one go!!! I put in hours of training and was delighted at my personal achievement to swim it in 11 hours 45 mins over 2 days, although I don't think I will do it again - my shoulders are killing me!!! I am delighted the people that work within Postgrad Solutions give up their spare time to raise money for such a great cause - it's absolutely fantastic.”
