LEO Pharma Trek Fest

LEO Pharma complete marathon walk in aid of National Eczema Society

A big congratulations to our partner, LEO Pharma, and their intrepid team who took on a marathon challenge last Saturday (July 13), walking 26.2 miles from Henley-Upon-Thames to Windsor along the Thames Path to raise funds for people living with eczema.

The team also smashed their fundraising target of £2,600, reaching well-over  £4,800! An incredible amount!

Commenting on the event, National Eczema Society's Chief Executive, Andrew Proctor, said: “We are so grateful to the Leo Pharma team for taking on this challenge and supporting our charity. Their dedication to improving the quality of life for people with eczema is inspiring and shows how we can all make a difference. It is wonderful too that the company is match- funding the donations raised by the team themselves. The funds raised by #LeoPharmaTREKFEST will help us support many more people and families who struggle with the incessant itching and painful skin caused by eczema every day.”

On partnering with National Eczema Society, Vice President Cluster Europe North & AU-NZ Geraldine Murphy said: “We applaud the invaluable work that patient organisations, like National Eczema Society, undertake. In particular their dedication to improving the quality of life of people with eczema and their carers really resonates. It mirrors our own ethos, as at the heart of everything we do is the drive and passion to improve the lives and health outcomes of people living with dermatological conditions. I am delighted to confirm that LEO Pharma will match the amount of sponsorship raised with an equal donation. Well done to all the walkers and support crew!”
