Half-marathon spon­sors’ team raise £1,500

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

A TEAM of run­ners from this year’s Hilling­don Half Marathon spon­sor, Bird & Lovi­bond Solic­i­tors, raised a four fig­ure sum for a spe­cial­ist can­cer cen­tre.

Fundrais­ing by run­ning the 10K event on Mon­day March 28 means £1,500 will go di­rectly to the Paul Strick­land Scan­ner Cen­tre, based at Mount Ver­non Hospi­tal, in North­wood.

Gary Ben­nett, man­ag­ing part­ner at Bird & Lovi­bond, said: “When I ar­rived to start the race Storm Katie was in full force, de­spite this ev­ery­one was in good spir­its.

“There was an ex­cel­lent turnout, in­clud­ing all ten of the Bird & Lovi­bond team, many of whom were run­ning a 10k for the first time.

“I am very proud of our team who put in a stun­ning per­for­mance, given the con­di­tions.”
