Their company announced they would double the amount raised by the 70-strong team of runners for St Ann’s Hospice and the British Heart Foundation.
It means we will share around £22,000 from the kind-hearted gesture by specialist lender Together, which is based at Cheadle Royal Business Park.
Runners had barely got their breath back after tackling the 10 kilometre course when company bosses delivered the welcome news about its two charities of the year.
Together runners Milly Niblock and Mia Karmazyn celebrate reaching the finishing line.
Even though we're a finance company, we're big on charity work and volunteering. St Ann's Hospice at Heald Green is round the corner from our offices and we've been there a few times and really appreciate all the work they do there. St Ann's and the British Heart Foundation were our chosen charities last year when we could hardly do any fundraising because of Covid so we rolled them over to 2021. Ryan is an avid runner and roped me in. We had a fantastic turn out and it was a great day. It was really nice news when we arrived at work on Monday and heard that the company were very kindly going to double the donation. Keely Sharp, Change Manager at Together
