Hamptons International has raised £7,000 for its charity partner, Cancer Research UK, by taking part in the Virgin Sport British 10k run. 30 employees took part in the event on 15th July, braving a heatwave! The route was 6.2 miles around Trafalgar Square, Big Ben and Embankment.
Hamptons International has raised £200,000 in its five year partnership with Cancer Research UK. The next initiatives include a potential golf day and ‘Relay Around the Regions’ penned for the diary. Relay Around the Regions is a Hamptons International, company-wide fundraiser, where employees travel from branch to branch of Hamptons’ network of 90 offices using modes of transport from roller skates to rowing boats.
Lesley Cairns, Managing Director 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.”
