Get The Edge UK and partners launch Inspire Day, Newark

Posted: 23rd February 2016

Former soldier, triple amputee and author of ‘Standing Tall’, Andy Reid, will join Ultra Marathon Man, Andy McMenemy, along with Get The Edge UK and partners for an ‘Inspire Day’ fundraising event. The ‘Inspire Day’ will take place at Kelham Hall in Newark on Thursday 17th March.

Designed to support local businesses and staff, this unique event promises to get attendees off to a winning start, feeling inspired, and ready to face any challenge. And all for a good cause, with proceeds going to Beaumond House Community Hospice.

The day will consist of three interactive training workshops, a ‘mindfulness zone’, and inspirational talks from both Andy Reid and Andy McMenemy. Through these sessions, guests can expect to discover the key to happiness and success and gain an insight into how much your life and your workplace could improve by adopting a positive mindset and our proven methods.

Andy Reid said: “I hope that my story of overcoming adversity and the daily challenges I have faced, and continue to face, will give guests the inspiration they need when facing the challenges and hurdles in their daily lives.”

Andy McMenemy said: “There is nothing more enjoyable than using my experience to encourage others to achieve their goals and dreams. It’s a pleasure to work as part of a team that inspires people to achieve their true potential.”

Proceeds from the event will go to local charity Beaumond House Community Hospice, a charity that is committed to providing supportive palliative care to patients with life limiting or terminal illness and their families. The minimum asking donation is £50 per ticket – a substantial discount from the usual cost of £200 per person. Complimentary lunch and refreshments are also included in the price. Any business which donates £100 or more will also be offered membership to the Beaumond House Business Club.

Cathy Lowe, fundraising and marketing manager of Beaumond House, said: “We are delighted that Get the Edge has offered to run this day as a benefit to the Hospice, which would not exist without the support of companies like Get The Edge and the partners involved. I urge all businesses to send their staff because it promises to be a day where everyone involved will come away with something hugely beneficial and of course inspiring.”
