Giving back – the Howden way


Giving back – the Howden way

Giving back is central to life at Howden. Creating an inclusive environment where everyone feels proud to work, includes empowering our employees to support the communities, charities and projects important to them.

In celebration of Howdens 30th Anniversary, throughout 2024, a number of extraordinary fundraising challenges are being undertaken by some of our Howden Re colleagues around the world.

Together we make an even bigger difference …

Steve Garnett, (North America Strategic Advisory) will be taking on the New York Marathon with Fred’s Team, the official running program of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK).

Steve’s soul motivation is his 8 year old son Booth who is currently undergoing lifesaving cancer treatment, thanks to MSK.

Steve aims to raise $10,000 to give back to vital groundbreaking Paediatric Cancer science and research at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK).

Steve explains: ‘The science and research that has gone into this type of childhood Cancer has enabled many families to have a significant amount of hope in overcoming this disease… My hero [Booth] has less than 1 year left in the fight against this disease, it’s time for Team Garnett to start attacking this disease for others..’

A group of riders led by Harry Owen and Paul Harris (UK Treaty) are challenging themselves by riding 1,000 miles in 10 days from London to Monte Carlo.

The feat will see a peloton of our colleagues climbing the equivalent of more than twice Everest to raise over £50,000 for well three well deserving Charites: Maggies, The Felix Project and one to be nominated in celebration and remembrance of Will Bloomer, our longstanding, much respected and loved Chief Corporate and Legal Affairs Officer.

Oliver Pidgeon and Asher Brooks will be riding the ‘mountains week’ of Le Loop for charity.

Following the 2024 Tour de France route through the Pyrenees and Alps, joined by clients, they will be covering over 1,000km and climbing 10,000m over six stages raising money for the William Wates Memorial Trust whose mission is to help the most disadvantaged young people keep away from a life of crime and violence, and fulfil their potential.
