Tell us about what it is that you're doing
"I am raising money for Cancer Research UK by doing the Great Row. This involves me rowing a marathon - 26.5 miles across the month of March."
Why are you doing it?
"I am getting married in July so I am trying to get fit to look good for my big day! Cancer Research UK is also a charity close to my heart that has affected my family and the majority of families I know, so I thought it would be a good cause to motivate me to get in the gym!"
What impact is your action having on others?
"One in two people are diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, and breast cancer is one of the most common forms affecting people from all walks of life. Donating money for this allows advancements in research, leading the way for cures for all forms of cancer. So any little thing I can do to help I will."
What are your doing next?
"As of the 1st of March I have started my challenge. I am trying to do 11 sessions of 20 minutes hitting 4000 meters each time. This should cover off the 26.5 miles. I have currently done 15,000 meters."
What do you find exciting about working for Rullion?
"I think 2018 is a very exciting year for Rullion employees. There are a lot of new incentives, rewards and appreciation schemes. We are becoming more active on social media and really standing out in the recruitment market place."
