A Good Deed – Running for Charity

Running for a Good Cause.

On 14 October 2018, The Royal Parks Half Marathon takes place in London. The race takes runners on a stunning tour through London; past some of the capital’s world-famous landmarks and through four of London’s eight Royal Parks – Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James’s Park and Kensington Gardens.

Running The Royal Parks Half Marathon is not only a good way to do some sightseeing of our beautiful capital, but it’s also the perfect occasion to run for a good cause and raise money for charity!

We are running for our company charity MicroLoan Foundation. MicroLoan Foundation is a UK-based charity that empowers women in sub-Saharan to work their way out of poverty. Through small loans, business training and ongoing guidance, these women learn to build businesses capable of sustained success. By giving hope and not handouts, MicroLoan provides the poorest women in sub-Saharan Africa with the tools and skills needed to move towards financial sustainability and to become self-sufficient.

Help us raise money for MicroLoan! Do a Good Deed and donate to our cause on our donation page. The money you help us raise will provide more loans and business training to women living in sub-Saharan Africa.

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.

Annika’s funeral will will be held on Friday 5th August at The Swedish Church, 6 Harcourt St, London W1H 4AG at 2 p.m. Service with drinks and refreshments after. There will also be a Memorial in Sweden on Hven at a later date.
