At AT&T we are proud to support charities that do great work with children and families in their local communities. Our primary fundraising event each year traditionally has been our corporate golf day and in 2019 we raised £2216 through various competitions with or guests, which is donated to help support our annual chosen charity. The Covid-19 Lockdown has prevented us from hosting the event in 2020 and 2021, but you can be assured that as long as it’s safe to do so, it will be back in 2022.
Below is short introduction to Muscular Dystrophy UK, our chosen charity. This is the charity bringing individuals, families and professionals together to fight muscle-wasting conditions. They are an amazing organisation and one that is very close to AT&T GB Ltd as they’ve been supporting one of our own members of staff.
Peter Williams, whom some of you will know from our trade counter, tragically found out that his teenage daughter Leanne had been diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy and was told that she would only live to late teens. However thanks to the support of Muscular Dystrophy UK he was introduced to Sarepta Therapeutics private clinic and through the help of family and friends was able to raise the funds needed to get Leanne the treatment she needed. Whilst Leanne still has a long way to go and a lot more costly treatment is required, the prognosis has drastically improved and now Leanne can look forward to many years of life ahead of her.
