Liam’s Fight to Knockout Cancer

Kingdom colleague, Liam Cunningham is putting on his boxing gloves and stepping in the ring, all to help raise money in the fight against cancer. The event, which takes place on the 30th March 2019, will see Liam step in the ring for the very first time and he needs your support to help raise vital funding for Cancer Research.

Cancer has unfortunately played a part in most of our lives in some way, and Liam’s family is no exception. Liam sadly lost an uncle to cancer last year and now he’s set himself the challenge to get in shape and help deliver a knockout blow to cancer.

Liam had this to say:
“I am challenging myself, hands up, I am not the fittest of men. I can't remember the last time I did any exercise. I knew when deciding to do this it was going to be very hard for me but seeing all the kind donations and words of support have kept me going. I would like to mention that my supervisor Ian and my team have also been motivating me and they are even hoping to get a VIP table in the night to come and watch me, which would be great!”

We wish Liam the best of luck and look forward to the event.

Chloe Walks All Over Cancer


Chloe is taking steps every day to help raise money for Cancer Research and needs your support. The “Walk All Over Cancer” challenge is a challenge set by Cancer Research to walk over 10,000 steps every day in March. 

Chloe, who runs the Training Support for Skill Centre, has already walked more than 130,000 steps and will be continuing to walk 5 miles or more daily. The weather hasn’t been kind, with heavy rain and strong winds making the task more difficult, but that hasn’t stopped Chloe from persevering on with her challenge.

To help Chloe reach her target of £200 for Cancer Research, please donate here.

We wish Chloe good luck for the rest of the month and support her every step of the way.

Kingdom Colleague’s Charity Run

On the 24th March 2019, John Roberts, a sector specialist at Kingdom, will be joining 13,000 runners in running the London Landmarks Half Marathon. The event starts at Pall Mall and 13 miles later, John will complete the marathon at Downing Street.

All of the money raised from the cost of entry goes to the primary charity partner, Tommy’s – a UK baby charity that funds research to prevent miscarriage, premature birth and stillbirth.

Along with raising money for Tommy’s, John has a personal reason for running the marathon. John, unfortunately, lost his great uncle Peter at the end of 2018, after a battle with Parkinson’s and he is now running the race in his memory and to raise money for Parkinson’s UK.

John needs your support, any donation no matter how big or small makes a difference.

If you would like to sponsor John and help raise vital funding for Parkinson’s UK, then please click on the link below and donate.

Good luck John from all at Kingdom!

Halbert Richardson and Gary Mathers 
being presented with their certificates 
by Richard Ballantyne, Chairman of the Board, Port of Cromarty Firth
Recently, 4 of our officers attended a local port service course. The officers, who work at the Port of Cromarty Firth, were placed on the course to help them not only further develop their knowledge around the role but to also ensure that they are giving the best service to the Port of Cromarty Firth.

Jamie Graham, Regional Relationship and Development Manager in the Scotland region, had this to say about the recent training:

"The local port service course provided Kingdom Security colleagues with vital underpinning maritime knowledge for their role. They are currently employed at the Port of Cromarty Firth, as Port Radio operatives.  The role of the port radio operators is vital in the safe and efficient running of the Trust Port, ensuring local and visiting vessels are provided with the correct information. We’re pleased to say the training was a success."

Karyn’s Kenyan Adventure

Here at Kingdom, we’re always proud to help raise both money and awareness for our colleagues chosen charities. We’re thrilled to support Karyn with her Kenyan adventure this summer.

Karyn is the daughter of Tom Shaw, Security Manager at 80 Strand, London, and this summer she will be volunteering in a Kenyan school. Her time will be spent working with children between the ages of 3 – 14 years old.

Karyn is currently a 2nd-year law student at the University of Reading and will be leading and assisting lessons, sharing her skills with the children and staff and also supporting in the upkeep of the school premises and with the new school build.

The volunteering programme is with Younique Travel Adventures, who work in partnership with their partner charity, Younite Foundation to achieve national and educational aims for children.

The aim is to raise £2000. This will help Karyn fly to Kenya and to help fund both the building and educational materials required to facilitate the project in the rural communities.
