Skynasoars Flying the Flag in Support of Dan's Fund
Skynasoars helping to raise the profile of this specialist charity
Scunthorpe, UK (12 August 2014) - A Lincolnshire business specialising in promotional banners and flags is aiming to help a dedicated team of supporters and runners raise thousands of pounds for a specialist charity who are taking part in Royal Parks Half Marathon on 12 October.
'Dan’s Fund for Burns' is a small charity that was set up in the wake of the 2002 Bali bombings that raises money to help and support for burns survivors. Its aim is to raise awareness of the physical and psychological damage caused to burns survivors and raise funds to support those affected and their families. The charity is able to help in a variety of ways including: funding research, rehabilitation, transportation costs and financial assistance as well as a range of other emergency needs. They also raise money to help provide specialist equipment for Burns Units when NHS funding is unavailable.
Scunthorpe based Skynasoars have supported the charity for last two years and have helped to raise the profile of the organisation by providing promotional banners, flags and gaining publicity for this very worthy cause.
At this year’s Royal Parks Half Marathon a team from Skynasoars will once again be in attendance to support runners, together with their friends and families throughout the race, cheering them on and waving flags, further raising the profile of the charity.
The half marathon starts and ends in London’s Hyde Park. Over the last seven years, the foundation that runs the Royal Parks Half Marathon has helped to raise in excess of £18m for causes around the UK. This year over 16,000 runners are expected to take part including celebrities such as Sophie Thompson, recent winner of the 2014 Celebrity Masterchef Trophy, who will be running in support of Dan’s Fund
Jim Rowlands, MD at Skynasoars commented, "Charities such as Dan’s Fund do such great work to help those who have suffered as a result of such life changing tragedies. It’s such a worthy cause and one that I have a personal connection, previously working in Indonesia, travelling and meeting Balinese people who also suffered in this tragedy."
"We always try to help where we can to raise the profile and show support and would encourage others to get involved with such a fantastic charity and show their support in any way that they can."
