Leading water cooler supplier Angel Springs is helping a fundraising charity fun run in the West Midlands this weekend by providing 1,500 bottles of water for runners.
Two members of staff from Angel Springs will tackle the Running for Research 5k fun run at Sutton Park, Sutton Coldfield, on Sunday, May 27.
They are raising cash for the CureLeukaemia charity.
Jane Plested and Julia Warrilow will tackle the 5k course along with Jane’s daughter, Laura.
As well as participating, Angel Springs is supporting the event as part of its community charity work.
“This is a charity in which our colleague Simon Bridges is still very much involved,” said Jane.
“Angel Springs are again providing the water for this event and it would be great if we could get as many sponsors as possible for this very worthy cause.”
John Murphy, commercial director for Angel Springs, said the fundraiser was just one of the local charity events that Angel Springs supports.
“We look to help support local good causes wherever possible,” he said. “Our Angels in the Community programme was set up to help identify local charities we could get involved with.
“On top of that, our staff are active members of the local community and regularly get involved in fundraisers. We always try to support our staff in their fundraising endeavours, and this weekend will be no different.”
To sponsor Julia, Jane and Laura’s efforts, text CURE05 followed by your donation (ie £5) to 70070. All the money raised will go directly to CureLeukaemia – a charity which funds research into leukaemia.
