"I signed up in a moment of madness, as I don’t much like running. However, I do like working for Rennie Grove Hospice Care.” That’s what Poppy Montgomery-Ward, Patient Services Manager at Grove House gave as her reason for joining other members of staff from Rennie Grove and entering a team for this year’s Herts 10K challenge.
Our team – that’s made up of people from across the charity including from clinical services, fundraising, retail and trading, education and the management team – will be joining hundreds of other runners, joggers and walkers on the round-Harpenden fundraiser on Sunday October 13.
Amy Chambers, Head of Fundraising Development said: “I'll be running in my father-in-law's memory. I'm raising funds to enable our amazing nurses to provide more care to patients when they need it most.”
Would you like to join in and make an incredible difference to local people? Please visit herts10k.com for all the information you need including how to register. The Herts 10K is open to participants aged from 12 upwards and each person is asked to raise a minimum of £50 sponsorship. If you’re entering as a family, why not take advantage of the summer holidays to carry out some fundraising activities too?
Stewart Marks, Chief Executive at Rennie Grove who is part of the charity’s Herts 10K team said: “Everyone comments on the camaraderie and friendly atmosphere at the Herts 10K which is what draws runners back year after year. I am looking forward to experiencing that first hand and would encourage others to get together with colleagues, friends and family or simply to come along on their own and help us raise as much money as we can for local patients who need our care.”
