ISIS 5K Lockdown Challenge raises £830 for local charity!
13 May 2020



ISIS staff and their families recently took part in a virtual 5K challenge to raise funds for SOFEA, a charity based in Didcot who are supplying free food packages to the vulnerable and low income families across Oxfordshire. 





Lots of staff and their families took part in the challenge, spread over nine days in May, sticking to social distancing and daily exercise rules. Challenges included leisurely countryside walks, first-time 5 km runs, 5 km PBs, and even a mega 50 km static cycle!  We exceeded our £600 target, raising a grand total of £830 by the last day of the challenge!  That's 276 free food packages for families who really need it at this challenging time.

A big thank you to everyone who took part and donated!
