One of our fantastic Timpson Group colleagues in the North West is starting the New Year by challenging himself to lose at least two stone in weight by April. Darren Gallimore is a Timpson Mobile Manager and serial supporter of charitable causes. On this occasion, Darren has pledged to direct monies from his sponsored slim fundraising effort to the Alex Timpson Trust.
The 42 year-old grandfather of 10, (yes, you read that right) admits to being “a bit too beefy” and hopes to shed at least 28 lbs in Alex Timpson’s memory in a bid to boost a wider understanding of Attachment theory.
“I’ve already got £450 pledged from great colleagues and friends, and I’ve set up a fundraising page too, so supporters can sponsor me via that and watch my progress,” said Darren. “I think the Trust’s work and especially its pledge to support foster families with a free holiday is fantastic. As a grandfather of 10 I know just how important it is for families to get away from the hurly burly of everyday life and stresses and just enjoy family time.”
