Solihull Chamber of Commerce raise £1,650 for SoLO

In January, members of Solihull Chamber of Commerce took part in a fundraiser for SoLO which challenged them to run, swim or walk 5k for 5 days.

Tony Elvin, General Manager Touchwood and Chamber President said:

“We have been delighted by the response from members of the public to support our fundraising for Social Life Opportunities. Running 25k in 5 days, in sub zero temperatures may have been hard work for our unfit bunch of Chamber fundraisers but it has been worth every minute and we know the charity will make great use of each penny raised. We are hugely grateful“.

Due to the energy, dedication and commitment of the Chamber and it’s members, along with the generosity of the public, the group have raised £1,650 for SoLO.

Lesley Beer, CEO of SoLO said:

“We’d like to say a big thank you and well done to Solihull Chamber of Commerce and all their members who took part in this fundraising challenge for SoLO. The amount raised will help support the running of our projects ensuring we can continue to help adults, children and young people with learning disabilities to flourish and thrive”.
