A challenge has been thrown down to the community at Hatfield Business Park to hit the road and help raise money for charity.
The first Hatfield Business Park 5K Charity Fun Run on Sunday June 1st has been organised by Royal Mail's Northern Home Counties Distribution Centre charity team led by Geoff Fellows.
He explained: "There are more than 9,000 people who work at the business park and this event has been organised for the whole community to have fun and raise funds for both our charity Isabel Hospice, and their own chosen good cause."
Lisa Seccombe, Head of Fundraising and Public Relations as Isabel Hospice added "We are delighted that Geoff and his charity team are organising this fun run in aid of the hospice. We have to raise nearly £4 million each year, and for every £1 raised at least 89p goes directly to patient care for local people and their families."
Royal Mail has already raised £7,500 for Isabel Hospice, Welwyn Garden City, with a number of events and stunts over the last two years and hopes to boost this even further with the fun run.
Other businesses based at the park in Frobisher Way, Hatfield, have sponsored the event. They include Computacenter, T-Systems, T-Mobile, Next Generation Gym, Glaxo, Lucozade and www.big.co.uk.
Runners can register now at www.hbp5k.co.uk or by downloading the form below. All runners receive a free entry into a prize draw to win an hour light aircraft flight donated by pilot John Kilbride of Royal Mail.
