In May 2019 the EECO2 Team took part in the Great Manchester Run to raise money for The Joshua Tree, a local children’s cancer charity (more information below). This week, the team welcomed a representative from the charity into the office to tell more about the foundation, what support it currently provides, plans for the future and what EECO2 can do to help.
