‘Team Sienna’s’ Bristol Half Marathon Update - September 9, 2016

Sienna CroppedSeveral members of the One 77 Mortgages team will be running the Bristol Half Marathon on Sunday 25th September 2016. They will be running on behalf of ‘Wallace and Gromit’s Grand Appeal’ to show their support for Bristol Royal Children’s Hospital, and are attempting to raise £2,500. The training and fundraising has been going exceptionally well over the last few months, and to date over £2,300 has been raised. It looks likely that we will exceed our target which is fantastic news, and we would like to thank everyone who has donated to the cause so far.

Katie Pisanu, Protection Sales Director, who is leading the team said “We wanted to do something to demonstrate our support and gratitude to Bristol Royal Children’s Hospital for all they have done for my daughter Sienna over the last three years. We are very much looking forward to the Bristol Half Marathon and we are exceptionally grateful to everyone for their kind support.” To read Sienna’s story or make a donation please visit: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Team-Sienna
