Over £2,200 raised for the charity camilles appeal
The Itineris team has raised over £2,200 for Camille's Appeal, a charity established to help young children fight the long-term effects of treatment for brain tumours by competing in a 24-hour karting fundraising challenge.
The Copdock-based agency, which specialises in website design, development and email marketing, raised £2,210 through personal donations for Camille's Appeal. Under current treatments, children with brain tumours are likely to undergo chemotherapy, surgery and radiotherapy. In many cases, these treatments will leave the child with disabilities, making an independent life very difficult. Camille's Appeal aims to help with the rehabilitation of such children.
Led by head of sales and marketing, Matt Horsup, a team of ten members from Itineris drove a go-kart continuously for 24-hours at Anglia Indoor Kart Racing in Ipswich ranking third place, beating team Audi within the last few minutes.
He said: "This cause is extremely close to my heart as I personally know the parents who originally founded their charity, and their daughter Camille who has a brain tumour. The money we raised will go directly to help with the rehabilitation of young children who are faced with similar challenges. The race itself was pretty gruelling as we had to keep driving continuously in shifts but was for an extremely worthwhile cause."
Established in 2000, Itineris offers its own software platforms for email marketing, website design and development, and online event systems. Its clients include Dance East, Ipswich Town Football Club, British Heart Foundation and the Greater London Authority.
