Bournemouth Half Marathon – We did it!

City Centre Recruitment are delighted to announce that four of its team completed the grueling Bournemouth Half Marathon on Sunday 5th October 2014.

Stuart Jones, Rachel Wilson, Karl White and Dan Shrimpton had been in training for the past 3 months to enable them to complete the 13.1 mile course.

The team were running to raise money for Harrisons Trust Fund.

Harrisons Trust Fund was set up by Jo and Jon Dilling for their son Harrison who was born with Spastic quadriplegia cerebral palsy.

The decision to run for Harrison was born out of the desire to raise money for a local cause which was close to our hearts. Harrisons Trust fund was brought to our attention through an article in the Bournemouth Echo describing the amazing things people had done to try and raise money for this little boy so he could lead as normal a life as possible.

Dan Shrimpton, Managing Director of City Centre Recuritment commented

Harrison was born only 6 days after my daughter Izzy and therefore I had an immediate affinity with him. Kids at this age are such fun and if myself and the team can do a little bit to help make the challenging parts of Harrision’s life a little easier and make the smiles last a little longer for Harrison and his parents then it is all worth it. 

We are very thankful for all the people who have sponsored us from all corners of the earth, I can assure you all that the money was well earned in aches and pains and your kind donations will be going directly to an excellent cause. Once we have closed the sponsorship page we will post further updates on where your money has gone and how it has helped.

Our Sponsorship page will stay open until Monday 13th October 2014 to allow all those people who said they would only donate once we had finished the race to put their money where their mouth is. To use that great line by Tom in Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels

Now, c’mon. Lemme feel the fibre of your fabric.
