B P Collins runs away with triple GX Fun Run success
The team from B P Collins proved a runaway success when it took top honours in the Gerrards Cross Fun Run for the third time in a row.
L-R: Steve Perry (Senior Marketing Executive) and Nick Hallchurch (Partner)
The 17-strong team – several of whom are in training for the Three Peaks Challenge next month – showed a clean pair of trainers to the opposition on the 5km course, with around 1,500 runners taking part.
The biennial event, for which the law firm is a Gold Sponsor, once again attracted a fantastic turnout from the local community with money raised being split between Kids in Sport and Home-Start (Slough).
It has grown to become the village’s biggest community fundraising event, complete with a BBQ, children’s races, stalls and refreshments and, over the years, more than £215,000 has been raised for a variety of good causes.
As well as fielding a team of runners, B P Collins also had a hard-working group of volunteers organising an inflatable slide for children, which was so successful it even attracted a queue, and many more employees came along to provide moral support on the day.
Senior partner Chris Hardy, said: “It was an excellent day. Every year we are proud to support such a fantastic event and we were very happy to be at the heart of the activities.
“Well done to our fantastic runners who upheld our honour and our reputation as the fastest business in Gerrards Cross!”
