Five members of the One 77 Mortgages team ran the Bristol Half Marathon on Sunday 25th September 2016. They were running on behalf of ‘Wallace and Gromit’s Grand Appeal’ to show their support for Bristol Royal Children’s Hospital, with the intention of raising £2,500. Several other members of the One 77 team, the runner’s families and the team from The Grand Appeal were out in force to lend their support. There has been astonishing generosity and we are delighted to announce that we have exceeded the target originally set and as of this morning £3,190 had been raised.
Katie Pisanu, Protection Sales Director, who led the team said “I would like to thank everyone for their support and kind donations to this excellent cause. We are delighted to have taken part in the Bristol Half Marathon and are ecstatic to have raised so much for Wallace and Gromit’s Grand Appeal.” To read Sienna’s story or make a donation please visit: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Team-Sienna
