On Sunday, whilst most people were enjoying a lie in or reading the Sunday papers over a bacon sandwich, a team of highly tuned athletes from SJL took part in the Worcester City 10k run. Our runners were raising funds for Sight Concern Worcestershire; a charity who help blind and partially sighted people to lead independent and fulfilling lives.
7 members of the team took part in the run and enjoyed varying degrees of success including founder & CEO Simon Lancaster with the fastest member of the team being Adam McElroy, who finished with a time of 50 minutes 34 seconds.
After the event Simon said “We are proud to support such a great charity. I have experienced, first hand, some of the great work they do as my father’s sight has deteriorated in recent years and the charity has been prominent in supporting him and making the various adaptations to his home for him to continue living independently. The event itself was incredibly well organised and we are looking forward to participating again in 2019”
