Support for Herts 10K and Half Marathon is so important

Supporting the Virtual Herts 10K and Half Marathon is more important now than ever before

As hundreds of runners and walkers prepare to take on the Virtual Herts 10K and Half Marathon from Sunday 4 October, long term sponsors of the event Plowman Craven and PB Donaghue have revealed why they feel it is more important now than ever to continue to support the event.

The Herts 10K and Half Marathon is Rennie Grove Hospice Care’s flagship fundraising event with the money raised from event sponsors and by individual participants helping fund the care we provide for local patients and families.

Sponsors Plowman Craven

Andy Molloy, Managing Director of Harpenden based Plowman Craven said:

“For the fifth year running, Plowman Craven is proud to support Rennie Grove Hospice Care’s flagship event, helping to raise money for the great work it does in providing end of life support services. Providing palliative care to patients in the comfort of their home, close to their families, is crucial.  At some point in our lives, we know we will all need the support of services like Rennie Grove and that’s why we continue to support this great charity.”

Not only is the company supporting the charity through sponsorship, but they have also put together a big team of participants.

“Plowman Craven has around 40 employees (including all its Directors) taking part in either the virtual 10K or the Half Marathon this weekend,” said Andy. “This is double the number we have had previously, and they’ve all really taken the challenge on board, raising additional funds through sponsorship and, of course, increasing awareness of the great work Rennie Grove does.”

Also supporting the event once again is waste management specialist, PB Donaghue, who said:

 “We are very pleased that we have been able to continue to sponsor the Herts 10k event. Rennie Grove Hospice Care does an incredible job looking after local adults and children who have life-limiting illnesses, and their families too.  As a local business we think it is important to give something back to the community and supporting a hospice charity enables us to do that.

"We all know someone who has been affected by cancer or other life-limiting illness and any one of us could need Rennie Grove’s services in the future so we are just pleased that we can make a contribution to this very worthwhile cause.”

Anyone wishing to take part and support Rennie Grove’s work can sign up to take part until 9.30am on Sunday 4 October and run either a 10K or Half Marathon distance following their own local route.  Go to www.herts10k.com to sign up or make a donation ​here. Every penny really makes a difference.
