Run-up to our big fundraiser

Macclesfield Express - - EAST CHESHIRE HOSPICE -

MORE than 200 run­ners will form part of the East Cheshire Hospice team at Sun­day’s Mor­risons Great Manch­ester Run.

The Hospice is de­lighted lo­cal com­pa­nies Arighi Bianchi and Car Loan 4U are once again spon­sor­ing its in­volve­ment in the race.

The sup­port of the two com­pa­nies means that ev­ery penny raised by the run­ners will di­rectly ben­e­fit pa­tients at the hospice.

Arighi, spon­sors for the fifth year, will have a team of 60 run­ners while Car Loan 4U, in the third year of sup­port, are bring­ing 15 run­ners.

East Cheshire Hospice is hop­ing to raise more than £35,000 and still has char­ity places avail­able at £30 each, with run­ners asked to raise a min­i­mum of £150 spon­sor­ship for the hospice.

Camilla Crock­ett, cor­po­rate fundrais­ing of­fi­cer, said: “We’d like to thank Arighi Bianchi and Car Loan 4U for their gen­er­ous sup­port once again.

‘‘On the day we’ll have a fan­tas­tic stand in the char­ity vil­lage at Manch­ester Cen­tral pro­vid­ing free de­li­cious muffins from Café Arighi and free mas­sages to all of our run­ners.

“There’s a great at­mos­phere at our stand where run­ners, their fam­i­lies and friends meet and sup­port each other. We also have a cheer­ing point along the route where we ask fam­ily and friends to go along to en­cour­age our run­ners.”
