Taking part in one of the largest marathon events Liverpool hosts, the 15 strong team from the new Albert Dock venue, joined thousands of other runners to complete the course on Saturday 28th May. Dressed in Cuban themed costumes, they have so far raised £650 through charitable donations, with Revolución de Cuba matching any donation made pound for pound. The team chose to run the race as part of the company’s Cuban kindness initiative. Lauren Cassells, marketing manager for Revolución de Cuba and one of the runners, commented; “We’re extremely excited to be opening our Liverpool venue in June, and wanted to do something positive for the city and the wider community before our launch. “The Rock ‘n’ Roll marathon was the perfect fit for us. It allowed our team to participate in a great Liverpool event, take in some of the city’s great sights and raise vital money for an extremely worthwhile cause. Alder Hey Children’s Charity does fantastic work that benefits children worldwide, It’s a charity that we know is close to the hearts of many people in Liverpool and a lot of our new staff. “As a company we try to bring the spirit of Cuban kindness to all our venues, so we’re already looking forward to our next charitable event in the city. We are hoping to work with The Whitechapel Centre regularly when we open, so we can provide them with food to help for city’s homeless population.” Alder Hey Children’s Charity raise funds to support the pioneering work at the new hospital, Alder Hey in the Park. Any support or funds given helps 275,000 young people to be treated each year. Contributions go towards groundbreaking innovation and research into childhood diseases and medicine.
