Several 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; a cause close to their hearts.
Katie Pisanu, Protection Sales Director, said “We are keen 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. She has a condition which sadly means that she is a regular visitor to the hospital; most recently last December when we very nearly lost her. The hospital and it’s staff were exceptional and we are taking part in this event to thank them for the amazing work they do.”
