Regard Torch Relay
Regard is getting into the London 2012 spirit by launching the Regard Torch Relay, which will see a torch travel hundreds of miles as it visits dozens of its services across England and Wales between May and August.
The aim of the relay is to involve as many of the company’s Service Users and staff as possible in fun-filled events, while also raising funds for selected charities, including Macmillan Cancer Support, Action for Kids, Penny Brohn Cancer Care, Ty Hafan childrens hospice, Princess Royal Trust for Carers and The Mental Health foundation in Bristol and the Demelza Kent hospice in Sittingbourne.
Following a day of fundraising activities at the company’s head office in Kingston upon Thames on Friday, 18 May, the torch will be handed to Maarten Vegting, a Locality Manager in Regard’s London Region, to start its England and Wales tour.
It will then travel in week-long stages around Regard’s 13 localities, in the safe hands of the Locality Manager for each area. While in each locality, it will visit as many services as possible, to give the maximum number of Service Users and members of staff the opportunity to be involved. Click here for more details.
