We are thrilled that 25 women from the Centrica Women’s Network have chosen to support Rosa in 2014. The intrepid explorers from CWN are undertaking a five day Arctic adventure over International Womens’ Day (8th March) to raise funds! The team will tackle a number of physically demanding challenges including cross country Nordic skiing, showshoeing, building snow shelters and a 60km dog sled. The money raised will support women’s organisations in the Thames Valley supporting women to improve their vocational, business and life skills, to re-enter the workplace and to assist young women who have financial barriers to continuing their education.
Rachel Callaghan, British Gas Senior Counsel and intrepid ARC participant said:
We are delighted to be supporting Rosa’s unique work supporting women and girls. Working with Rosa means we can be confident the sponsorship money we raise will go where it will have the greatest impact, helping women and girls to improve their life chances. Our Arctic Challenge will hopefully inspire more women and men to support organisations working to challenge inequality here at home bq.
