Derby 10k for Myeloma UK

SDL Surveying Run To Raise Money For Myeloma UK

In January 2019,  SDL Surveying took on a mission to get as many people as possible from the office (and the field) to take part in the Derby 10k run.

With various levels of running experience, most had never ran for anything more than catching a bus, but the numbers were out in force and could be seen training in and around Chilwell regardless of the freezing temperatures.

And… WE DID IT!

On 7th April, an amazing 41 surveying colleagues took part and completed the Derby 10k. It was a brilliant day and great to see so many people getting together for such a deserving family and cause- the atmosphere was amazing!

The aim was to raise as much money as possible for Myeloma UK- a charity very close to our heart’s, to show support to our lovely work colleague, Team Leader and friend, whose Dad is currently fighting it.

What is Myeloma?

Myeloma, also known as multiple myeloma, is a blood cancer arising from plasma cells. At any one time there are around 17,500 people living with myeloma in the UK. It accounts for 15 per cent of blood cancers, and two per cent of all cancers. Myeloma mainly affects those over the age of 65, however it has been diagnosed in people as young as 20.

In addition to the run, we did some further fundraising with multiple cake sales- because everybody loves cake! A raffle and on 12th April we took to the local fields and held a rounders tournament!

The total amount raised was phenomenal… over £5200!

    Great service from this company. Arranged by my lender, SDL rang to book an appointment … read more very quickly. Then rang back to offer an earlier slot. Paul rang 30 mins before arriving as promised. He was extremely pleasant, helpful and thorough. No complaint from us at all.

    The surveyor who attended was extremely professional, showing covid awareness and … read more politeness from the very start. He was informative, engaging and made what could have been a strictly procedural meeting, a more personable and enjoyable one. We shared good conversation and SDL should be made aware that this surveyor represents the company in an excellent way. Would definitely recommend their services as a result

    I thought the service provided by Richard from SDL Surveying was fantastic. Gave … read more me a call the day of the survey to talk through his findings. Then once I had received the report, kindly talked me through the final report and answered my many questions. In what can sometimes be a painful experience, Richard made things super simple.
