Handepay staff in final push to reach £10k Steve Prescott target

Handepay staff are using rugby league’s showpiece Grand Final to smash through our charity fundraising target for the Steve Prescott Foundation.

A total of 23 Handepay staff will walk the gruelling 18 miles from head office, in Haydock, St. Helens, to Old Trafford on Saturday, October 8th, before enjoying a well-deserved seat to watch the grand final match between Warrington and Wigan.

The rugby connection is especially apt as we have been raising funds since May for the Steve Prescott Foundation – and this sponsored walk will take Handepay’s total past the £10,000 target we set to achieve by May 2017.

Members of the foundation, some of whom will be climbing Mt Everest in October, will be joining and encouraging the staff on their walk.

The Foundation was set up in 2007 by the former St Helens, Wakefield and Hull player Steve Prescott, following his diagnosis with cancer. The Great Britain and Ireland international passed away in 2013 from rare form of cancer, pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) and, in recognition of his amazing fundraising efforts, rugby’s end of season Man of Steel award is now named after him.

Andy Peake, managing director of Handepay, says: “The Steve Prescott Foundation is a cause close to our hearts and we are proud to contribute to carrying on the brilliant fundraising work Steve did in the final years of his life.”

“At Handepay, we regularly go the extra mile for our customers, so the prospect of a walk to Manchester from Haydock won’t scare us!”

Martin Blondel, general manager of The Steve Prescott Foundation said: “£10,000 is a huge sum and to deliver it in just five months is testimony to Handepay’s dedication to helping the people of the North West. The funds they’ve raised will enable us to make a difference to the lives of those who need it.”
