Doubleday Employees get their running shoes on .....

On Sunday 30th April, Jonny Smith, Service Technician of the Kings Lynn depot, participated in the Kings Lynn GEAR' (Grand East Anglia Run) - a 10k run around thecentre of Kings Lynn - which he successfully completed in just 46 minutes and 52 seconds.

Jonny's chosen fundraising charity was the 'Kings Lynn Queen Elizabeth Hospital Stroke Unit ' a unit close to his heart after his sister suffered a stroke just last year.

Jonny explained that 'it is with immense thanks to the unit that my sister is still here and has since made a full recovery. I have so far raised a total of £940 which I am really pleased with. Thanks to those that have sponsored me and should anyone still wish to make a donation then it's not too late!'

Charlotte Bracewell from our Accounts department, and her friend Stacey completed the Lincoln 5k Colour Dash on Saturday 14th May 2016 where they ran 5 kilometreswhilst being splattered with every colour of the rainbow!

So far they have managed to raise £426 all in aid of the St Barnabas Hospice Trust (Lincolnshire) who provide palliative and end-of-life care to give dying people a good quality of life.

Charlotte explained 'it was great fun and all for a great cause - our Just Giving fundraising page is still open so if you would like to make a donation towards this very worthwhile cause then you can visit www.justgiving.com/charlotteandstacie

Any donations whatsoever would be very much appreciated.

A massive well done to you both !
