We’re Going for Gold at the Weybridge Community Regatta 2018

Following on from our fantastic success at last year’s Weybridge Community Regatta (where we were surprised but thrilled to emerge victorious from the Division B knock-outs!), the team here at March Recruitment is excited to announce that we will be returning to defend our title at the 2018 Regatta on Friday 3rd August. This year, we are supporting Myeloma UK, a charity that is close to the hearts of everyone at March.

Myeloma is a type of blood cancer that arises from damaged DNA in the plasma cells of your bone marrow. If you’ve never heard of it before, don’t worry, you’re not alone; many of us in the office had no idea what it was until one of our team members received a diagnosis in 2016. It’s actually not a particularly rare type of cancer, though, as there are roughly 17,500 people living with myeloma in the UK at any one time.

After working through a vigorous treatment plan that included a stem cell transplant, our colleague is thankfully now in remission and back to doing what she does best: helping people find their perfect jobs in Weybridge! Having shown strength and positivity throughout the entirety of the gruelling process of her treatment, she inspired us to try and do the same at this year’s Weybridge Community Regatta! Not only that, but she also spurred us to raise money for Myeloma UK, the charity dedicated to finding a cure for her illness.

If supporting this fantastic cause isn’t enough of a reason to join us at the Regatta in August, there’s also a drinks bar in the marquee, where you can hopefully help us celebrate a second year’s victory – we’ve grown accustomed to having the trophy in our office, so we’ll be trying our best to win again! That’s not to say that we are particularly sporty… we are a team of novice rowers, some of whom are a tad unfit, but having spent years together placing candidates at jobs in Weybridge, we know we work incredibly well as a team (both in the office and in the boat!) and are truly dedicated to our chosen cause.

Thanks to fantastic local support, we’ve already surpassed our fundraising goal of £500, but if you’d like to help contribute to finding a cure, you can visit our JustGiving page here. We’d also love to see you having fun at the event, and hopefully cheering us on!
