20th October 2015
During the month of September two of our employees completed local marathon events. The tough events take hours of training and preparation but both our employees rose to the challenge to raise money for Cancer Charities.
Here at ERW we believe that hard work should be recognised, so we would like to take a moment to congratulate them for taking the time to make a difference.
To say Ben Applewhite, Our wood machinist, is a keen runner is an understatement! Regularly running 35 miles a week in training, he has completed the Great North Run an impressive 9 times and the London Marathon twice. At the end of September he completed the Nottingham Marathon in an impressive 4hr 21min 49sec putting him over half way up the results at 747 out of 1625.
To boost the sponsorship for the Nottingham Marathon, in aid of Prostate Cancer Research, he ran a sweep stake in-house to guess his finishing time. Overall Ben raised £600 and the winner of the sweep stake won a £50 prize fund.
Well done Ben!
A little further up North our Procurement Administrator Dan Mowbray took part in The Great North Run, the greatest half marathon in the world. The Event see’s thousands of runners travel the 13.1 mile route from Newcastle to South Shields and this year Dan was a part of that, raising money for Cancer Research UK.
With only a few months of training and no experience in running marathons, Dan took the brave step to sign up to the Great North Run. Running for a great Charity which is very close to heart for Dan and many other members of the team here at ERW, his current prize fund stands at £400 with still more donations been given. He finished the race in an amazing 2hr 32min 30sec placing 29862 out of 0ver 57000.
We are very proud to support and sponsor them in there achievements. Raising over £1,000.00, We would like to say a massive Well Done!!
We would also like to take a moment to congratulate Dan and his partner Beth on the birth of their beautiful baby girl Ruby. We’re sure they’ll make fantastic parents.
