Running raises over £4,200 for CHECT

16 October 2017

We are SO proud of our team from Birmingham Optical running at the Great Birmingham Run and raising over £4,200 for CHECT (Childhood Eye Cancer Trust). Jane Salway, Liam Gill, Ian Coates, Radhiya Ebraimjee, Arran Fewkes, Steve McCullough, Sam Hughes, Dean Creswell and Liam Creswell all ran the half marathon on Sunday 15th October to raise money for our chosen charity. The money raised is a huge contribution towards our £10,000 target for the year.

Diane Emery, Fundraising Manager for CHECT thanked Team Birmingham Optical for their marvellous run and for their fantastic fundraising and said “To smash the target of £3,000 in such a way is really appreciated and it’s a great boost to our charity – in addition, of course, to the funds that you have already raised for us.”
