OMA Group Staff go the extra mile during the COVID-19

Friday 12th June 2020

OMA GROUP have come together virtually along the West African coast to run/walk/cycle a mile to complete a virtual marathon.

Charities and charitable organisations are struggling more than most during the Covid-19 pandemic and OMA Group employees in West Africa wanted to do something to help.   OMA Group agreed to sponsor staff to run/walk or cycle a ‘virtual marathon’ one mile at a time.

A fantastic turnout saw 77 employees from across West Africa as well as South Africa, Australia and the UK took part and ran just under three marathons raising a fantastic £1523.00 for local charities.

Now we’re looking to increase that.  Can you help?

All money raised will be split between the nominated organisations each office has selected, who are working with some of the poorest members of our communities in very difficult times.  You can donate via Virgin Giving here:
