What Motivates Paul Mulderrig

What motivates Paul Mulderrig is clear from this interview.  Both he and his wife, Clare, have five wonderful children. Their youngest son, Caspar, who has Down Syndrome and Autism was the inspiration for Paul and Clare’s involvement with the Rossendale Rays charity.

 

Rossendale Rays

Rossendale Rays Facebook Profile PhotoRossendale Rays is a special needs sports club and registered charity. Clare Mulderrig was one of its founders, so she was fundamental in establishing a life line for special needs kids, their siblings and parents.

The charity provides swimming and bicycle opportunities for children with similar needs to their son, Caspar.  Plus, it is a tremendous support for families. Without this, it simply wouldn’t have been possible for the kids to develop their beloved hobbies.

Marl Pits Running Track

The Marl Pits running track is fundamental to the Rossendale Rays Charity, and it’s used regularly by the  Rossendale Harriers , Triathlon Club, and other individuals, so it’s a massive part of the local community.

Over the years, the Marl Pits track has become worn, water logged and pot holed, so is considered dangerous.  Alongside a team of other individuals, The Rossendale Harriers and Triathlon Club, Paul and Clare are trying to raise approximately £270,000 for a new track, so that it can be replaced.

The fundraising efforts are also supported by Ken Masser and the team at the Rossendale Leisure Trust.

In terms of raising money, they’re off to a cracking start, with donations in excess of £84,000 already.  As well as talking about his business, we discussed aspects of the fund raising and how other local businesses can help raise more funds, getting a clear understanding of what is required. The sports clubs and Rossendale Rays have all donated a substantial amount of money to the fund.

A Just Giving page has been set up for anyone who wants to donate money to the track.

 

Tracy’s Thoughts

This interview is heart provoking, because the emotions, as well as the brains behind the Mulderrig brand is revealed.  It’s all about personal injury law, charity formation and the running track, at Marl Pits, giving a true overview of Paul’s motives, focus and plans.

I’m in awe of Paul Mulderrig, his wife Clare and all the other individuals who have made Rossendale Rays a success.  Sometimes, we just don’t realise how lucky we are to have such amazing people around us!

I learned a lot about the pressures and pleasures involved with running a charity.  Also, I felt completely humbled by how the local Rossendale community is pulling together to make this new track happen.

Watch this space!

Enjoy this informative and heartfelt interview with a local business man who really is a class act, so you get to hear an open and honest interview!

 

Very Best Wishes,
