Team Roman runs up funds
A team of Roman employees has raised more than £2300 for charity by participating in the Great North Run and the Bristol Half Marathon in September.
The charities set to receive funds from the team includes; Help for Heroes, NSPCC, Cancer Research UK, Marie Curie, Yorkshire Cancer Research and Tree of Hope.
Five ladies took part in the Great North Run, which is local to the County Durham based company, whilst one of the retail development managers completed the Bristol Half Marathon - his own local race. All participants selected their own individual charities to raise money for and the total was achieved through sponsorship and also via bake and book sales around the company's head-office.
The team was made up of a mixture of experienced runners, along with those who were new to the sport - all of them managed to complete the races.
"We are very proud to have raised so much money for a range of different charities," says David Osborne, Managing Director and head of the Roman Charity Committee. "The team participating in the half marathons were keen to raise as much money as possible, so we were happy to help when they organised their bake and book sales.
"Congratulations to all of team Roman who participated in the events - they all trained exceptionally hard. A special 'well done' goes to Ang and Shelley, who both completed the race in the impressive time of sub two hours. A big thank you goes out to all those who sponsored and supported the team."
