Big Fun Run Success

On Sunday 25th October 6 of us took part in a 5k Big Fun Run for our company charity Tyneside and Northumberland Mind.  We had an absolutely brilliant time and it was fantastic being surrounded by so many others running for great causes.

Although it wasn’t a race, speedy Rob Shippey who is one of our Joiners made it round in  an amazing 23 minutes, finishing 5th overall.  Rob was followed by our Business Development Manager Simon Taylor who raced round to get back in time for the Tyne and Wear derby, although after the embarrassing result for The Toon he might as well have stopped for a picnic on his way.  Simon was shortly followed by our very own Carol Vorderman, Finance Manager Zoe Ridgeway who finished in 30 minutes.  Racing over the line in 35 minutes was our last minute stand in 9 year old Amelia who is the daughter of our Sales and Marketing Assistant Emma, she was shortly followed by her mum Emma Fernie and Sue “I’m nearly 97 don’t you know” Milne finishing in an admirable 38 minutes!

We are currently collecting in sponsors but anticipate the total to be over £400.00 for our great cause.
