Golden celebrations continue as B P Collins wins Fun Run
In its golden anniversary year, B P Collins has retained its title by winning the company award category at the 2016 Gerrards Cross Fun Run on Sunday (22 May).
The firm’s 25-strong team were quick off the mark, showing a clean pair of heels to the opposition on the new five kilometre course, which saw a hugely impressive 1,320 runners taking part.
The premier local sporting biennial event, for which B P Collins was proud to be a gold sponsor, once again attracted a fantastic turnout from the local community. The event raised an impressive £30,000 for three great causes; Medical Detection Dogs, Kids in Sport and The Elizabeth Voaden Foundation.
Local Olympian and former gold medallist Adrian Moorhouse, B P Collins' non-executive director, had the honour of starting the Fun Run from outside the Memorial Centre on the East Common of the town.
As well as fielding a team of athletes, B P Collins also had a dedicated group of volunteers organising the Grand Draw raffle and the ever-popular tombola, with many more employees attending to enjoy the day's family festivities.
Senior partner, Chris Hardy said of the event: “Over the years, the Gerrards Cross Fun Run has become hugely successful thanks to the hard work of the organisers. We are honoured to support and take part in such a great community event.
"As the firm celebrates and enters its 50th year in business, we look forward to many more years of success together.”
