British Lung FoundationWhat is Pulmonary Lung Fibrosis (PLF)? It is a scarring of the lungs. It kills 190,000 people in the UK and is rising every year, killing 5 Million people worldwide. This disease has no cause and more alarmingly, no cure. Lung Fibrosis is extremely debilitating as the oxygen levels drop immediately after any physical task is undertaken. As healthy individuals, we have blood oxygen levels at close to 100%, whereas someone with Lung Fibrosis will be down to 60%. Doctors and Professors have been getting increasingly concerned with trying to find both the cause and a cure as this is now a major health issue. Exclusive Contract Services has become a partner of the British Lung Foundation to raise funds for research into PLF. We will honour the memory of our founder and avidly support and raise money for the British Lung Foundation, to forward research and to give sufferers a better chance. In 2013 Amanda Evans, our Business Development Director and daughter of our founder ran the London Marathon raising several thousands of pounds on behalf of the British Lung Foundation.
China ChallengeIn our first team endeavour we have completed the China Challenge. A team from Exclusive along with client colleagues travelled to Beijing, China to complete a triple challenge which consisted of 2 Half Marathons, 155km Cycle ride and 2 days of trekking in and around the Great Wall of China. The team returned from China extremely victorious; not only did they complete the challenge they also raised a fantastic £71,521 for The British Lung Foundation.
