In memory of… Mark Aaron
Historically we have supported and promoted Dry January’s, Cycle rides, and client events too, so when we were approached by an employee’s relative to help raise funding and awareness following the premature and devastating loss of her husband last year to throat cancer, we were happy to consider the challenge!
On the 17th & 18th May, 10 colleagues of the late Mark Aaron, from Chaucer Insurance will be making the long 2 day trek, covering 42 miles from his favourite city haunt, The Lamb public house in Leadenhall Market, to his favourite local The Bricklayers Arms in Chipstead Sevenoaks in recognition of his short life and to raise awareness around The Voice of Head, Neck and Throat Cancer charity, 20-20 Voice Cancer (charity no. 1156733)
Embridge will be joining the march on Friday 18th May, and completing a shorter walk of 16 miles, starting out from our Northfleet office and converging with the rest of the walkers at The Bricklayers Arms late afternoon/early evening to celebrate the joint achievement.
Give generously for 2020 Voice Cancer....
I think it’s fair to say that most people have sadly been affected by cancer in one way or another and we all have our own stories to tell, so this is not actually about dwelling on one story or tugging at heartstrings. This is just about some of the Embridge team stepping outside their comfort zones, giving up some time and trying to make a small difference – because somebody asked for our help.
Money raised for the 20-20 Voice Cancer charity will go towards lifesaving equipment that can detect the early onset and diagnosis of oral/throat cancers. A devastating disease that robs people of all ages of their voice.
If you would like to spur the EMBRIDGE team on with their walking challenge whilst supporting the incredibly brave Aaron family; Mark leaves behind a wife and 2 children, then please help us to raise funds towards the essential equipment needed, a Flexi-Video Rhino Laryngoscope.

We thank you from the very bottom of our walking boots for your kind generosity.
