Today leading estate agent Hamptons International announces it has raised over £7,000 for charity partners, Cancer Research UK, by partaking in the Virgin Sport British 10k run. Thirty employees took part in the company wide event which took place on Sunday 15th July, braving a heat wave to do so. The route, spanning 6.2 miles, saw the team run around iconic landmarks such as Trafalgar Square, Big Ben and Embankment.
To date Hamptons International has raised over £200,000 in its five year partnership with Cancer Research UK. Hamptons International’s next fundraising initiatives are already in the pipeline, with a potential golf day and ‘Relay Around the Regions’ penned for the diary. Relay Around the Regions is a Hamptons International, company-wide fundraiser, whereby employees from around the business travel from branch to branch covering the entire Hamptons network of over 90 offices using various modes of transport from roller skates to rowing boats.
Lesley Cairns, Managing Director at Hamptons International says: “We’re delighted to have raised such a significant sum for Cancer Research UK with the Virgin Sport British 10k run. The event was a huge success and it was wonderful to see our employees rally together to complete a race on what was one of the hottest days of the year – a true testament to the cause.
I would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who has donated and to all those who showed up on the day to cheer us on our way. Cancer Research UK is a charity that is very close to our hearts and we look forward to building on our fundraising efforts in the near future, hopefully still having fun whilst doing so.”
