New Norfolk charity event aims to raise funds through ‘netwalking’

Tiger Eye, a Norwich based IT consultancy firm, have announced ‘Tiger Trek’, their new three-day summer charity fundraising event.

The team at Tiger Eye are inviting local businesses to ‘take a walk on the wild side’ and join them in raising funds for The Benjamin Foundation through ‘netwalking’ across the Norfolk Coast, from Hunstanton to Cromer.

Tiger Trek, which is taking place from the 17th to 19th May, aims to combine Tiger Eye’s award-winning employee wellbeing scheme “PAWS for health” with the company’s charity volunteering scheme.

With corporate teams of up to four participants welcome from each company, Tiger Eye are inviting companies to ‘walk the walk and talk the talk’ with them, for either one, two or three days of their 3-day trek. Tiger Eye hopes that the event will inspire local businesses to stretch their legs and restart their fitness regimes, as part of a unique opportunity to network, discuss and engage with local businesses every step of the way.

The firm, which offers Document Management and Email Management to the professional services, hopes that their team will be joined by businesses from all walks of life, to create a networking event that’s just as diverse as the range of clientele their business works with.

As winners of a Gold Accreditation at the Best Employer Eastern Region awards 2018, Tiger Eye recognised that physical exercise and teambuilding were important for their employees’ wellbeing and decided that the walk would be a great way to promote mental and physical health within their own team, as well as the local community.

With community engagement in mind, Tiger Eye decided that all the proceeds from Tiger Trek will be donated to the Benjamin Foundation, who carry out vital work in the community, helping children and adults of all ages deal with many of the challenges that life throws at them. As well as offering accommodation centres for homeless young people, the charity also provides support to help them get their lives back on track.

David Bullock, Director of Client Services at Tiger Eye, said: “We are delighted to announce this exciting event, continuing our longstanding policy of nurturing employee well-being as well as increasing our engagement with the local community. We hope that local businesses will join us in recognising the benefits of Tiger Trek for personal well-being and mindfulness, as well as raising vital funds for such an important cause.”
