The Geoquip team is really proud to be supporting a number of local and national charities that make a huge difference to people’s lives:
Breast Cancer Now is the UK’s largest Breast Cancer Charity, created by the Merger of Breast Cancer Campaign and Breakthrough Breast Cancer. One in every eight women in the UK will face breast cancer in their lifetime and every 45 minutes, another woman dies from the disease. Breast Cancer Now is dedicated to funding research into this devastating disease.
Orchid is the UK’s leading charity working on behalf of anyone affected by or interested in male cancer – prostate, testicular and penile cancer. Every year 43,000 men are diagnosed with one of these cancers and the numbers are increasing.
The Movember Foundation is a global charity committed to men living happier, healthier, longer lives. Since 2003, millions have joined the men’s health movement, raising £402 million and funding over 1,000 projects focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity.
Sport Relief is a biennial charity event from Comic Relief, in association with BBC Sport, which brings together the worlds of sport and entertainment to raise money to help vulnerable people in both the UK and the world's poorest countries.
St Helena Hospice exists to help local people with an incurable illness to live well and die with dignity and choice – their core services are provided for free and the majority of our work takes place in the community, in people’s homes.
Look out for our upcoming events, thank you for your support.

To raise funds for our nominated charities for 2020 we have planned a number of events for 2019 and 2020.
Monday, 7 January 2019
Geoquip was thrilled to kick off the year by raising funds for our local St Helena Hospice in Colchester (www.sthelena.org.uk).
Together our team of 11 combined their talents at running, cycling, jogging, swimming and walking, to complete a grand total of 1,287 miles.
Converting that into pounds, it means we’ve raised over £1,000 to the hospice’s Make it Matter 2019 campaign.
Thank you to everyone for their hard work and also to everyone who sponsored us.

St Helena Hospice is looking for families to take on their most colourful fundraising event, involving people of all ages and abilities running or walking through walls of bubbles at the scenic High Woods Country Park in Colchester.
The event begins at 11pm on Saturday 9th June and will see participants walk, jog or run a 5km route with a difference. Each runner will encounter five ‘bubble stations’ where they will run through walls of colourful bubbles while high powered ‘bubble cannons’ blow out 30 cubic metres of bubbles a minute aimed at participants.
To find out more information and to enter the event, please visit St Helena Hospice website: http://www.sthelenahospice.org.uk/event/bubble-rush-2018
