Walk the Walk came into being 20 years ago when just 13 women Power Walked the New York City Marathon in their bras to raise money and awareness for breast cancer. What started out as a one-off fundraising event, has blossomed into a thriving multi-million pound charity, raising to date in excess of £106 million for vital breast cancer causes.
The Team at Personnel Placements with the help of a few of their friends trained togther and completed the 26 mile Moon Walk - tired, with sore legs all round but with smiles on their faces! We had a great night and laughed and sang along the way!
We raised £3,158.86 and can't thank our friends, family, candidate and clients enough for their support in raising this fantastic amount.
“I'm super chuffed and really excited; I didn't think had worked out after the interview but it turns out they liked me! I can't thank you enough for the opportunities and support you have given me over the last few months; it was a difficult and horrible time when I first approached PP for work, nothing was going right and I was hitting brick walls everywhere trying to get back into employment. You were the only agency I approached that properly listened to my situation and my experience, and how my transferable skills could be an asset to employers rather than a hindrance. I had been shot down by all the other Salisbury agencies that claimed that I was a poor candidate for admin based positions - something we both know is not true! I was desperate to get back on my feet and everyone at PP has been so kind. My payments have always been on time and without any issues, and you've been so great with communication and answering all my silly questions. I've become happier, more confident and motivated; its funny how a good job can turn everything around huh? In a age full of employment horror stories, I've so glad this has had a happy ending. Once again, thank you so much for seeing the potential in me and not just a CV, I will highly recommend PP in the future to anyone looking for employment. Please circulate this email amongst the team to show them what amazing work they do and what a difference they have made! Kate Blake ”
