Another March Recruitment Victory?

Another March Recruitment Victory?

March Recruitment are taking part in the Weybridge Community Regatta for the 4th year in a row, safe to say it is now an established event for us and we enjoy it more and more each year.

After the success of our 2nd year we are determined to win back the title of Division B Winners! (crews with little or no experience), but as they say it’s the taking part that counts…!

We are taking this opportunity to raise money for charity, as we do every year, it’s important for us to raise awareness of local independent charities and ones that have a personal meaning to us.

This year our charity of choice is the White Lodge Centre, this is in honour of Anita Whiting’s brother Steve Burke, this is Steve’s story…

Steve became quadriplegic following a brain trauma when he was 19.  With a strong spirit he adjusted and adapted to life with disability and embraced all that was available to him.  A few years ago he discovered White Lodge and after his first visit there, he fell in love with the centre.  He would spend his time there joining group discussions, creating art, learning new I.T. skills, enjoying days out, event evenings and just making great friends. The centre brought new dimensions to Steve’s world and absolutely changed his life. The centre is run so well and provides amazing outlet for disabled people young and old.  The staff are kind, caring and always go the extra mile to support their clients.  You can actually feel the love and warmth as you walk through the doors. Steve sadly passed away in December, but was so happy to have spent his last day at White Lodge enjoying a Christmas dinner with friends that he had come to love. This centre is totally awesome and relies heavily on donations – thank you for your support.

As a small independently owned recruitment agency we work in a very close-knit team, it’s very difficult to see a colleague go through losing a loved one. Anita has been unbelievably strong and as a thank you for the White Lodge Centre’s hard work and support throughout Steve’s life we are proud to have chosen them to sponsor.

We have an all March team this year:

  • Hollie Capon
  • Charlie Shepherd
  • Bessie Shepherd
  • Donna Jackson

The Regatta will take place on 2nd August 2019 and is an all day event. It is hosted at the Weybridge Rowing club and anyone who wants to come along is welcome, we would love to see people coming down to support us on the day!

Any donation, no matter how small will mean so much to us, Anita and Anita’s family. Thank you so much.
