According to the company: “Sooey was recruited by Marsh to lead the ‘Miles for Smiles’ Christmas fundraising campaign during 16-20 November. His mission was to travel 20,000 miles across the UK in five days with the Marsh Transport Team; bringing a smile to every person he met along the way.”
The target was met Friday 20 November prompting celebrations among the Marsh team and the children’s hospital charities that will benefit from the success of the Miles for Smiles campaign:
- Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity
- Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital Charity, Cardiff
- Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity
- Helping Hand – Charity to The Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children
Managing Director of Marsh Industries, Steve Boyer, said: “While they say laughter is the best medicine, I would also say a smile can help in most everyday problems. And I’m sure we can acknowledge that this has been a stressful year for many.
“We hope that the successful completion of Sooey’s mission has helped our friends, colleagues and customers raise a smile and we are delighted to donate some much-needed funds for children’s hospital charities in the process.
“Thank you for sharing your pictures of Sooey and messages of support throughout his mission. These can still be viewed on our social media channels using the hashtag #SooeyMarsh.”
