Celebrating the Success of 2020 RED Life Sciences Charity Race
This August, RED’s Life Sciences team set out a challenge to run/cycle a tour of 2,020 kilometres to raise money (a goal of £2,020) for Dorothy House Hospice Care, a charity of tremendous personal significance to the team.
The team of 10 smashed through their target with a distance of 2,131 km, more than enough to cover their European bases and go from London to Zurich to Munich and back. For those who didn’t know, our Life Sciences team is based across London, Zurich and Munich hence the goal. The team also beat the fundraising target, raising £2,319.25 for the charity with support from the RED colleagues, candidates and clients.
With this initiative, RED’s Life Sciences team successfully accomplished their goal to contribute to the greater good. RED’s Global Account Manager Benjamin Eddy says, “RED Life Sciences was set up to support the ITS community to help empower lives. We wanted to do to a little more for the people that need it the most.”
Dorothy House was appreciative of the support, and they highlighted how vital the support is during the COVID-19 pandemic especially as many charities have taken a hit. In their thank you letter, they said, “We are very grateful for your support, particularly at this time, as this gift will help us to finance these important moments which make a real difference to people’s lives.”
Along with the greater goal achieved, the team had a lot of fun along the way. They had several battles amongst themselves, seeing who would come out on top. The incentive helped them not only achieve new personal activity goals but also resulted in some strong team bonding. RED’s Delivery Consultant Matt Dunne says ‘Without the drive and support from the LS team, I ever thought I could run 4 half marathons within 2 weeks. I did, and we kept building as a team.’
Congratulations to all who participated in this major success of an initiative. You’ve helped make a real difference in a time when that matters the most. Shoutout to everyone in the Life Sciences team: Ben Eddy, Carla Papenbrock, David Roberts, Jill Soni, Josie Baber, Katharina Mahlecke, Kevin Chapuzet, Mark Cain, Matt Dunne, Sean Nyazika. You’re all amazing!
Thank you to all of those who donated and supported our team in this great effort.

SAP Custom vs Standard - The Big Debate.
SAP standard vs custom is a major consideration faced in every SAP implementation, and with good reason. Both approaches have their pros and cons and can have a dramatic impact on your enterprise.
But just how did those with custom systems fare in the recent pandemic, given how quickly many organisations had to make changes because of it? We surveyed our clients to find out if custom or standard was the better choice.
