Leicestershire Architects sets its sights on two charity events this September

Award winning architects IMA Architects (IMA), is turning the spotlight on charity commitments this September to raise money for two incredibly worthy causes – Alex’s Wish and the Bodie Hodges Foundation.

Firstly, on Sunday 18th September, Merryn Lynes, the company’s Business Development Manager, will take to the skies to complete her first ever skydive. Jetting off from Langar Airfield and taking a 12,000 feet leap of faith over Nottinghamshire, Merryn’s fundraising target of £550 will be donated, in full, to Alex’s Wish.

Alex's Wish is a parent-led charity that has joined the fight to end Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) for all children, a genetic disorder characterised by progressive muscle degeneration. Today, huge advances in science and medicine mean a cure for Duchenne is no longer a pipedream, and with funding and awareness it is possible to achieve this goal. If you would like to donate, you can do so via Merryn’s JustGiving page:

Just five days later on Friday 23rd September, Merryn will don her fundraising hat once more, this time challenging herself to walk barefoot, over hot coals to raise money for The Bodie Hodges Foundation. Formed in 2012, this charity supports families who have been bereaved of a child – of any age – and actively promotes organ donation.

IMA is an award winning firm of architects based in Blaby, Leicestershire. The firm, which celebrates its 25 Anniversary this year, has grown from a two person team, to now employ over 30 members of staff and work with a range of FTSE 100 companies, such as Marks and Spencer, and global brands such as Lidl. The company is a proud sponsorship partner of Leicester Tigers RFC, Leicester City Football Club and Leicestershire County Cricket Club.
