Putting our best feet forward in aid of charity

Members of our team recently donned their running shoes to raise hundreds of pounds for a local air ambulance charity, by taking part in the annual Cricklade event which includes a half marathon, 10k and fun run distances.

Chris Cooper and Jenna Prior ran the 10k course, while Paula and Emily Schramm took part in the fun run. The race numbers for all three events were sponsored by McGills Chartered Accountants.

The quartet have so far raised £145 for The Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, which will be matched by the firm, giving them a total of £290 for the cause. The Midlands Air Ambulance operates three helicopters throughout the Midlands and Gloucestershire.

Chris Cooper said: “This was a real challenge, but I am delighted that we have been able to raise a good sum for a very important charity.”
