Well it is not purely business here at Axia ASD Ltd and we thought we would share some of our personal news updates with you.

Carly (Company Secretary) – Carly ran the Sheffield Half Marathon on Sunday 6 April 2014 – and is now known as a Rebel Runner (!!!) to raise funds for Sheffield Children’s Hospital and Changing Faces. The total amount raised was £1,017!!! Carly’s daughter continues to be treated by the Sheffield Children’s Hospital following a tumour several years ago and half of the funds will be going to the Late Effects Project they are running to see how having cancer in childhood affects children later in life. The other half of the funds raised will be going to the new Changing Faces Practitioner that has been commissioned for the Children’s Hospital. Carly was the first ever fundraiser for this and is something that Carly is very passionate about, having facial palsy herself.
Carly is also now a member of the User Council for Changing Faces and further information about the work that this charity does can be found at www.changingfaces.org.uk.

Everyone at Axia ASD Ltd is looking forward to his return and the culinary delights he will bring back with him from the trip.
