We supported the ‘Social Teahouse’ by running at the Varna Marathon
This year Pontica has created a line of events under the slogan #WeSupportTheYoung for its social responsibility initiatives. These will include volunteering, charity and sports events which both our Sofia and Varna teams will take part in. Pontica is consisted of young, energetic and capable people who have inspired us to dedicate these series of events to young people’s development.
On May 9 we took part in our first initiative for this year which aimed to provide help to the ‘Social Teahouse’. The Teahouse is a place located in the center of Varna which supports young people coming from foster homes by employing and mentoring them, thus helping with their personal and professional development. Due to the COVID-19 crisis many businesses had to close doors and the ‘Social Teahouse’ was one of them. Since they now need funds to reopen and to continue to help young people with their development, our Pontica team completed the 10 km distance at the Varna Marathon and the Teahouse received a donation by us based on the kilometers ran.
Pontica handed in the donation certificate to the Teahouse team on their fifth birthday anniversary on May 18. We are proud that many people from our Varna team joined in the 10 km distance run and helped us contribute to raising funds so that the Teahouse can reopen.
We are glad that we managed to combine outdoor physical activity with a charity event which we believe in. By following all the safety measures after a year full of home office and restrictions we are happy that we were able to set a good example.
Stay tuned for more events in Sofia and Varna which we will support throughout this year!
