Good Effort: Team Goodwille run the British 10K for charity

Sunday 15 July 2018 was incredibly warm, with a temperature of 25 degrees Celsius before the clock had even struck 10am. But despite the heat and the fact that there were no clouds in sight, nothing could stop Team Goodwille from running the British 10K in Westminster to raise money for UNIQUE – a charity with the mission to inform and support anyone affected by rare chromosome and gene disorders.

Yes it was warm, yes the run was a bit more sweaty than most 10K’s, and YES they still all finished with great results! Definitely a Good Effort by all runners, not only from #teamgoodwille, but everyone participating in the run. The atmosphere during the run was amazing, and it was fantastic to see that most runners were running for charities and to support Good Causes.

Running for charity has become a tradition at Goodwille, and our employees partake in several races every year to raise money and awareness for different causes we care about. This year we chose to support Unique, and we hope that by raising awareness of rare chromosome and gene disorders and donating all the money raised from running the British 10K to UNIQUE, we can make a difference to individuals and families in the UK.

There is still time to help us make a difference and donate to our cause. All donations and contributions, however large or small, make a real and lasting difference.

Goodwille raising money for charity

#teamgoodwille are running the British 10k again this year, raising money for two UK charities; Sands and the Children’s Society.

SANDS supports people who have been affected by the loss of a baby by providing bereavement support through remembrance events, online forums and a support helpline amongst other services. They also fund research in to stillbirths and neonatal deaths, working with the NHS and other organisations to help improve maternity care.

The Children’s society supports vulnerable children in the UK, for example children living with adults who misuse substances, those suffering with mental health problems and young carers. They work primarily with children aged 10 to 18 and in 2015/2016 they helped over 18,000 children. Alongside this they also campaign for changes in law to help these children.

The British 10K, sponsored by Virgin Sport, takes place on Sunday 9th July. Our 7 person team will be aiming for some PB’s but more importantly to raise money and awareness for SANDS Charity along with the Children’s Society.

It is with the greatest sadness that the Board and Staff of Goodwille have to inform you of the death, on 6th July 2016, after a short illness, of our Founder and Chairman, Annika Åman-Goodwille.

It has been one of Annika’s greatest achievements that she has succeeded in infusing her Goodwille colleagues with her own remarkable dedication. This shared commitment has ensured that the company has achieved consistent, sustainable growth on sound financial foundations. Annika has fostered Goodwille’s reputation as “good people to do business with”, to the point where highly valued clients have become longstanding business friends.

Svend Littauer and Kevin Rutter will continue to run the Goodwille business on a day to day basis. You should expect normal service in our commitment to your business. If you have any questions please contact Svend or Kevin.

Svante Adde has been involved with Goodwille for the last 7-8 years and will take over as non-executive Chairman. Alexander Goodwille, who has been Head of IT at the company for two years, has also joined the Board.

The Goodwille and Åman families continue to support the business both in the short and longer terms, as a respect to Annika’s legacy in Goodwille.
