Fenn Wright runs for fun at Kesgrave 5k
Mark Drummond from Fenn Wright Commercial in Ipswich was the first of the Fenn Wright team to complete the run in an unofficial time of around 19 mins 20secs, finishing in, he believes, sixth place behind overall winner Jason Berry.
The largest number of entrants was recorded – 374 in all – raising £1,439 for the Kate Moyes Memorial Fund at St Elizabeth Hospice.
Event organiser Debbie McCallum and friends instituted the Kesgrave Music Festival and related events such as the Fun Run eight years ago in an effort to raise £100,000 for the Hospice in memory of her friend Kate, who died of an aggressive form of cancer in 2005. Debbie has now exceeded her original target, and she and the team of other organisers thanked Fenn Wright for their participation.
Fenn Wright sponsored the event and handed out much-appreciated goody bags to all finishers.
Toby Spencer Campbell, Residential Sales Manager at Kesgrave , said everyone had thoroughly enjoyed the day, which had proved a great success for the organisers. “Our participation here was just part of our efforts to integrate with the local community and support a worthwhile cause,” he said,” and we hope to have a presence at many more similar local events.”
Fenn Wright’s own fund raising efforts amounted to some £403.
