The 24-Hour Moveathon saw 4Com colleagues boxing, swimming, circuit training and more throughout the day and night – all in aid of Dorset Nightstop.

That money will enable Dorset Nightstop to host and maintain eight emergency safe spaces for the next 12 months.

There they can provide those aged 16-25 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness with shelter, a hot meal, a shower and emotional support.

Dean CartledgeDean Cartledge, COO of 4Com and Head of the 4Com Foundation, said: “When we decided to take part in a 24-Hour Moveathon, we knew it would be tough – but as always, our team were up for the challenge.

“For a lot of our colleagues, taking part in this challenge was a step outside their comfort zone, but they were still willing and dedicated to raising money for this brilliant local charity.

“I’m proud of them all, from those that organised the event to those that got involved.

“They all went above and beyond to complete the challenge for Dorset Nightstop.”
