Hi guys, my name is Sooey!

I’m a festive snowman on a special mission.

I’ve been recruited by Marsh Industries to lead their ‘Miles for Smiles’ Christmas fundraising campaign. My mission is to travel 20,000 miles in 5 days across the UK with the Marsh Team; bringing a smile to every person I meet along the way.

Now, I may look like an ordinary festive snowman, but underneath this hat, scarf and gloves is a cute and cuddly figure destined to bring joy and Christmas cheer to the nation.

My mission runs from 16-20th November and, if I’m successful, Marsh Industries will donate £1 per mile covered between four UK Children’s Hospitals:

· Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity · Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital Charity, Cardiff · Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity · Helping Hand - Charity to The Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children

Mission Chief, Steve Boyer, says "2020 has been a year that none of us will forget in a hurry. The importance of helping others wherever you can and giving to those who need it most has been vital this year."

“We’re hoping Sooey can complete his mission and raise some much needed funds for UK Children’s Hospitals, as well as raising some smiles for our valued customers and colleagues.”

“If you spot Sooey during his mission, please share your pictures and messages with us on our social media channels @marshindustries using the hashtag #SooeyMarsh."

Well-said boss!

You can also keep track of my daily progress at marshindustries.co.uk/sooey and on their social media channels.

I can’t wait to begin and I really hope to meet you during my mission.
