OPM is taking part in the MS-UK 925 Challenge!
The national multiple sclerosis (MS) charity based in Colchester has launched a fundraising challenge that will see local businesses go head-to-head in a race against time.

Those taking part will run events and set challenges to raise money for MS-UK. Below are some of the activities we’ll be running. Expect to see more individual tasks from the team over the next 9 weeks!

- 92.5 km challenge – cycling, running and swimming
- 925 mile drive – OPM’s office in Colchester to Abertay University, and back again
As well as having fun, businesses taking part will also benefit from team work, creativity and networking with other local companies.
All the money raised goes straight to MS-UK so please visit our Just Giving page if you’d like to donate to this amazing cause.
