A 56-year-old man Ealing has been shortlisted for a national award taking place in November that recognises people who raise funds for Sense, a charity supporting children and adults with complex disabilities.
Guni Suri, who works in the jewellery industry, is one of a number of people shortlisted for ‘Fundraiser of the Year’ at the Sense Awards after raising over £18,000 for Sense.
Mr Suri’s fundraising challenges and activities for Sense over the past five years have included climbing Snowdon at midnight, walking 52 miles along the Thames Ridgeway and taking part in cycling event Ride London.
He has also involved his two Shiba Inu dogs in his fundraising efforts.
Mr Suri said: “I very much appreciate being shortlisted for Fundraiser of the Year at the Sense Awards. Taking on challenges for a cause I believe
in is a testament to the power of human determination and compassion. It reminds us that when we come together to overcome obstacles, we can make a meaningful difference in the world.”
Sense Chief Executive Richard Kramer added: “Guni has been a committed fundraiser for Sense for many years, taking on extreme challenges to raise funds for our vital work supporting children and adults with complex disabilities. We are delighted to have the opportunity to celebrate his achievements at the 2023 Sense Awards.”
The awards take place on 23 November 2023 and will be hosted by presenter and actress Samantha Renke.
