Mintra is delighted to double the funds raised by a team member in support of The Archie Foundation and Aberdeen Neonatal Unit.
Mintra’s Lewis Haughs, a Senior Learning Digital Designer, completed a gruelling Loch Ness marathon to raise money for The Archie Foundation and Aberdeen Neonatal Unit, following his daughter’s premature birth at seven months.
This is a second recent fundraising effort by Mintra’s global team, following a donation made to the MND Association, to support those living with Motor neurone disease.
Gareth Gilbert, Chief Operating Officer at Mintra commented, “We are committed to supporting causes which are close to the hearts of our team and have a positive impact on the communities in which we operate. In four months, together we have raised £4,300 to give back to significant charities which make a difference to the lives of many people.”

We would like to thank both Lewis and Mintra for supporting the care of premature and unwell babies which is undertaken at the Aberdeen Neonatal Unit. "
Cassie McGunnigle, Fundraising Manager, The Archie Foundation added, “We would like to thank both Lewis and Mintra for supporting the care of premature and unwell babies which is undertaken at the Aberdeen Neonatal Unit. The donations make a huge difference to the lives of families who stay at the facilities and goes towards life-saving equipment.”
The recent fundraising activity was undertaken by Mintra’s Lewis Haughs, following his own experience of the Aberdeen Neonatal Unit when his daughter Isabella was born at 31 weeks, weighing 1.4kg in 2020.
“The marathon was a lot tougher than I expected, even with months of training under my belt, but the money raised made every mile worthwhile. Our family is so grateful for the support and hard work of the Aberdeen Neonatal Unit.
"The doctors and nurses worked so quickly to stabilise Isabella when she stopped breathing shortly after birth and supported us throughout Isabella’s stay. The staff was there for us throughout the most difficult time of our lives, always positive, professional and became a second family – especially as we were there during the Covid-19 lockdown.”
“Isabella spent a total of 34 days at the Neonatal Unit before coming home weighing still a teeny 4lbs 8oz, 2kg. She has defied expectations ever since and is today fully discharged from the Unit.”
