Princebuild, Princeenergy and Princeclean staff and associates took to the streets of King’s Lynn last weekend to complete the 10km race to raise £4,500 for Cambridge, Peterborough and South Lincolnshire Mind (CPSL Mind) and Macmillan Cancer Support.
For many of the 34 strong team, this was their first ever running event and a significant amount of effort was put into training. For others this was the 3rd time they have taken on a 10k as part of the Princebuild team and they made sure they supported the less experienced team members around the course.
The race was enjoyed by all with scenic sections along the river Ouse and into the park just outside the town centre. Support along the route was excellent, with lots of friends and staff coming out to cheer the team on.
Some of the company’s key customers, suppliers and sub-contractors kindly agreed to sponsor the team’s race t-shirts – The Energy Cell, Beecal Electrical, Chris Groome Decorating, Premiair, HBP Systems, Curo Wealth Management, Kamarin Computers, King of Flooring and Mindray (uk) Ltd.
Matthew Pudney, Director, who also took part in the event commented “This is the third year we have taken on a 10k race to raise money for charity and it’s great to see so many taking part and also supporting the runners. Not only have the team raised a fantastic amount for our chosen charities they have also worked really well together throughout training and during the race to support each other in achieving their goals.”
Aly Anderson, Interim CEO for CPSL Mind said, “We are so grateful to the staff of Princebuild for choosing CPSL Mind to support and for the effort and commitment they all put into their training. With one in four of us at any one time experiencing a diagnosable mental health condition, demand for our services increases every year. The money raised by Princebuild will enable us to help even more local people who are either in mental health crisis or who are recovering from a mental health condition. A huge thank you to everyone who was involved.”
