Four staff members from local law firm Grant Saw ran more than 100 kilometres each during September to raise vital funds for BLG Mind.
The team from the south-east London solicitors more than doubled their target of £500, raising £1,050 for us, their Charity of the Year.
Ray Crudgington, Imelda Galvin, Michael Pope and Michael Tobin all covered over 100 kilometres in thirty days.
Matrimonial secretary Imelda said: “This was a great challenge and I was delighted to be involved as we look to raise money for BLG Mind.”
Managing partner Ray Crudgington added: “BLG Mind is a fantastic charity and I was delighted to get my running shoes on for them. Running through lockdown has been good for my own wellbeing and mental health.”
Earlier this year, Grant Saw held a fundraising yoga event to support us. The solicitors firm aims to raise a minimum of £2,500 over the next 12 months.
Lucy Morrell, Fundraising Manager at BLG Mind, commented: “We are hugely appreciative of the support of Grant Saw. To run over 60 miles in 30 days was a very challenging task, but we know how determined Grant Saw are!
“Many thanks to the Grant Saw team members for their fantastic efforts to support BLG Mind’s much-needed local services.”
