Fast mov­ing es­tate agent

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

A NORTH­WOOD es­tate agent is hit­ting the streets to raise money for a can­cer char­ity.

Adam Stimp­son, who is a sales man­ager at Gibbs Gille­spie in the High Street, has set a goal of more than £1,000 for Can­cer Re­search by the end of this year.

The prop­erty seller, who lives in North­wood, ex­plained the mo­ti­va­tion be­hind his char­i­ta­ble com­mit­ment.

“Some­one close to me has a fam­ily mem­ber with can­cer and I can see first­hand the ef­fects it has on ev­ery­body in­volved,” he said.

“I de­cided I wanted to do some­thing which helps suf­fer­ers and Can­cer Re­search UK cer­tainly does that. On Sun­day, Jan­uary 31, I ran the Lon­don Win­ter Run 10K.”

The run started in Trafal­gar Square and took in some of the cap­i­tal’s great­est land­marks in­clud­ing St Paul’s Cathe­dral.

He added: “I’ve been train­ing hard dur­ing the cold win­ter morn­ings and was de­lighted to run a per­sonal best of 52 min­utes and 27 sec­onds.

“It’s a great way to stay mo­ti­vated to keep fit and help oth­ers at the same time.”

Last year Adam took part in a Lon­don to Brighton bike ride for char­ity. It was this event that in­spired him to com­mit to rais­ing more dur­ing 2016.
