Staff from a Preston-based financial advisory firm will be putting on their trainers for the Preston Guild 5k to raise money for St Catherine’s Hospice.
Five runners from Taylor Patterson, Daniel Barrell, Kerry Houghton, Nick Howarth, Gwen Robertson and Neil Stewart, will be taking part in the road race on 7 May 2012.
The event is the first of four runs which make up the 2012 Guild Road Race Series.
Taking part in a sponsored run for the first time, Gwen Robertson said: “I’m looking forward to this bank holiday 5k run. It’s a great opportunity to get involved in a Preston Guild event and to raise money for St Catherine’s Hospice, a fantastic local charity.”
Chris Bardin, director and charity champion at Taylor Patterson said: “Taylor Patterson is really keen to get involved in the Preston Guild. We’re delighted that a group of staff have volunteered to get involved in the 5k run and we’ll continue to encourage others to sign-up for future fundraising events.”
Lynne Whittaker, senior fundraiser at St Catherine’s said: “It’s great to have Taylor Patterson as one of our corporate fundraisers. As a local charity for local people, St Catherine’s couldn’t deliver the care we provide without the fantastic support from the community. We wish all the runners lots of luck!”
Taylor Patterson’s staff nominate a different local charity to support each year. This year the company has set a £5,000 charity fundraising challenge, and monies raised will be donated to St Catherine’s Hospice.
