Former rugby union player, Tom May is set to complete the London Loop in aid of My Name’5 Doddie Foundation and Teenage cancer trust. The London Loop is a pathway that runs 150 miles all around London, inside the M25.

Tom who has never run a marathon before has planned to set off from Kingston Bridge on March 2nd where he will run a marathon a day, for 6 days arriving back at Kingston Bridge on Saturday 7th March. Tom has also decided he will add just a few more kilometres and run to Twickenham Stadium to finish at the statue in front of the Marriott Hotel.

Tom has acknowledged “the whole idea is a mad plan but that’s what makes it a challenge” and it’s all for something he cares deeply about.

As part of his ‘mad plan’ we have decided to sponsor Tom on his journey and believe what he is doing is fantastic. Steve founder of Sempar said, “I’m delighted that our practice can support both an amazing effort by Tom and two fabulous charities, I hope our contacts will get behind such an inspiring story and help Tom raise more money for these charities.” 

We would be grateful on behalf of Tom if you can please help where you can, as this is a huge challenge to face in which Tom will appreciate all of the support and motivation he can get. For more information and details on how you can help please visit Tom’s fundraising page;

What a result! With two hugely successful events in September, Sempar helped to raise just shy of £11,000 for their annual charity – The County Air Ambulance HELP appeal.

With the fundraising walk and the charity golf day, we are immensely thankful for all of your support and kind donations. It sure makes all the planning and hard work worth it!

Our client Flower & White Limited from Telford have won a gold award in Innovation at Lunch 2019 held at ExCel in London. 

Flower & White have been given the award for their work on their Meringue Bites product where the majority of the packaging is now plastic-free, leading the way in the confectionery industry, beating a number of multi-national companies to having plastic-free packaging. The company hope to bring plastic-free packaging in across their full range in the future, which is a big step towards their goal of being a more sustainable business.

Three members of the Sempar team embark on their 6th fundraising walk on 22 September 2019. Alongside 30 friends, family and clients they’re raising money for the County Air Ambulance Trust’s HELP Appeal, providing hospitals with life-saving access to helipads.

The annual walk is organised by our Director, Steve Timmis, and to date has raised over £17,000 walking 100 miles. Steve started his walks in 2013 in memory of his late father who he tragically lost on 20 September 2013.

Steve explains: “My Dad was a very generous and giving person and I have pledged to spend the anniversary of his passing walking in aid of a charity with as many people as possible.”

Joining Steve, Aludia Binos and James Finucane of Sempar this year is Steve Chadwick, Director of Luminite IT (pictured above).

This year’s hike takes the walkers on a 20-mile trek across the Shropshire Hills on a circular route starting and finishing in Little Stretton. The challenging route involves a climbing ascent of 1,500 metres. Steve adds: “It will be another lung-bursting trail that will push everyone to their limits.”

Sempar Walk for The HELP Appeal

Steve explains why he is supporting the HELP Appeal: “Having a hospital helipad close to the emergency department saves time and saves lives. On a personal level I also wish to support Lesley Knight, who after losing her only child Thomas in a road accident, has been dedicated to fundraising for more hospital helipads across the country.”

Lesley adds: “Partnering with Steve and his team has been amazing. Their passion and dedication to supporting the HELP Appeal has been phenomenal.”
