Logico fundraising race night is tipped for success

An award-winning logistics compliance and training business are to host a race night at Newcastle Races to help raise funds for a north east charity. Logico, who have recently moved into larger premises at Aycliffe Industrial Estate in Newton Aycliffe, are regular supporters of north east community events and are proud of their local roots, this being reinforced by their commitment to raise vital funds for local charity, the Bradley Lowery Foundation in their latest fundraising campaign. Launched in 2019, Logico have gone from strength to strength under the leadership of its managing director, Lisa Fleming.  Through her guidance and unwavering support of the transport industry, Logico has quickly gained UK-wide recognition, achieving Authorised Auditor Status for the DVSA Earned Recognition programme, the only north east company to achieve this and Lisa being only the third woman to have gained the accolade.

Helping to support businesses throughout the UK with transport compliance and training, Lisa is a passionate supporter of her local area and regularly hosts and is involved with charity campaigns, when she found out more about the amazing work that the Bradley Lowery Foundation does, she jumped at the chance to be involved. The Bradley Lowery Foundation was established in 2017 following the death of six year old Bradley Lowery, who lost his life to Stage 4 High Risk Neuroblastoma, a rare and aggressive form of childhood cancer.  After Bradley’s mum, Gemma, started a fundraising campaign to get Bradley treatment in the USA, which was not available in the UK, with the support of thousands of people, over GBP1.3 million was raised, these donations provided the funding base for the charity. Now in its 5th year, the charity has not only raised vital funds for treatment and equipment not yet available on the NHS but has raised awareness of Neuroblastoma and childhood cancers.

The race night, held on the 30th September, will bring together the great and the good of the north east business community and is a fabulous opportunity to network, enjoy the racing and of course, have a flutter, while raising funds for this important charity. Lisa, Logico Managing Director said:

“When I found out more about the work the Bradley Lowery Foundation are involved with, I was delighted we could help in a small way. As a growing north east company, I feel it’s part of our responsibility as business owners to try and give back to our local community when we can and this is a great way of doing just that. We’ve got lots of activities planned for the evening, I’m looking forward to bringing everybody together and of course, raising lots of money for the charity in the process.”

Gemma Lowery, Bradley’s mum and founder of the charity, was delighted Logico had decided to support the charity, commenting:

“We’d like to say a huge thank you to Lisa and her team for sponsoring the race night, it’s vital for us to collaborate with businesses to raise awareness of childhood cancers and to raise funds to continue with our vital work.

It’s important we continue sharing the message about the terrible cancers that children are unfortunately affected by, by doing this we will save more lives in the future and help to enrich the lives of children and their families who are affected.”
