Local warehousing and logistics firm infinite Logistics, have opened their doors to help local charity event RunVember.
RunVember collect donations for homeless people in Swindon. The entry fee for those taking part is simple; all participants are provided with a RunVember box that needs to be filled with non-perishable items including sleeping bags, clothes and roll mats, etc. Their unique entry fee requirements mean that without storage for their several hundred boxes, management of the donation process could become extremely difficult.
With 294 people taking up the challenge of 30 runs in 30 days, a large amount of space is required for the near 300 boxes to be stored safely and securely.
infinite Logistics, a local storage and logistics firm based in Westmead Industrial Estate, Swindon came to the rescue. Offering free space within their expansive warehouse and allowing participants the benefit of flexible drop-off times and easy access. Andy Lovegrove, infinite Logistics Warehouse Manager said:
“We’re really pleased that we’ve been able to do our bit for this worthwhile cause that provides such a valuable resource to the local homeless community. Alan’s enthusiasm for this event is infectious.”
Alan Butler, organiser of RunVember:
“If this continues to grow then we can make a massive difference to not only Swindon’s homeless but to the 250,000 homeless people in the U.K. But without the support of the runners and local businesses this wouldn’t be the success it is. So a massive thank you to all of you and same time same place next year.”
