Spalding recruitment agency director goes the extra mile for Children with Cancer UK
Spalding recruitment agency group Encore Personnel has raised more than £5,000 for Children with Cancer UK, just a month after setting a £20,000 target for the whole year.
The impressive amount for the New Road company came from director Ian Briers, who ran the London Marathon in an impressive 3hr 45m, raising £5,218.
Up next on Encore’s agenda is a Peak District Challenge in July where employees will attempt to walk the 50km route in under 12 hours. Then in September, a challenging coast to coast bike ride from Whitehaven to Tynemouth will see staff ride 166 miles over three days.
Ian said: “This particular charity is close to my heart, as my best friend’s son has been blighted by various guises of cancer. To suffer with cancer at any age is harrowing and frightening, but especially as a child when you don’t fully understand what is going on, along with the pain and emotional suffering from the treatments and hospital visits.”
