Five Hopkins employees ran the Nottingham Robin Hood half marathon on Sunday 28th September in order to raise money for the Children’s Bereavement Centre. The Children’s Bereavement Centre provides support for children affected by the death, divorce or separation of someone close.
The charity was chosen in memory of Lisa Lodder, a Hopkins employee who sadly lost her battle with cancer. This worthy charity relies on donations and support from the community to provide children and young people a welcoming and safe environment for them and their families to receive the help and guidance they need.
Craig Ploughman who was the driving force behind the fund raising explained his motivation for running the half marathon: “It felt like we needed to do something in Lisa’s memory and when her husband Bill named the charity we were determined to do it. It’s a great charity and it was a great effort by everyone. It looks like we will have raised somewhere around the £600.00 mark when all the money is in”
Craig, Seb, Lyndsay, Claire and Rob did a fantastic job running the half marathon. Not only did they raise a lot of money for charity but they also achieved personal goals and finished the race in very respectable times.
Caroline Chittell from the Children’s Bereavement Centre sent over her congratulations “Well done to you all, it is something which is beyond my belief that it can be even a little enjoyable to do something so strenuous. We cannot thank you enough for all doing it and I hope that you are all not feeling to sore this morning”
The money raised by Hopkins staff from the kind donations of friends and family will sponsor 5 children to receive 6 sessions each at the centre, a fantastic thing to be able to do.
