Runners help to raise funds for Anna’s Hope
For the second successive year a pupil from Copthill School in Uffington has raised the biggest amount of money for Anna’s Hope in the Perkins Great Eastern Run Junior Challenge.
Poppy Newman, who took part in the 5k Anna’s Hope Fun Run raised more than £1,500 and won the Anna’s Hope Trophy for the most money raised by a girl and a book voucher worth £25.
Founder of Anna’s Hope, Carole Hughes said: “This is a remarkable amount of money for such a young girl and like all money raised for Anna’s Hope in the run, this will go to supporting the Anna’s Hope therapy team.
“We really appreciate and thank Poppy for the money she has raised and we look forward to seeing her along with other runners in the Anna’s Hope 5k Fun Run in this year’s Perkins Great Eastern Run on October 11.”
Stamford Boot Camp also handed over a cheque to the charity for £4,339. More than 20 boot campers ran the half marathon in aid of Anna’s Hope.
As a result of its hard work Stamford Boot Camp was awarded the Anna’s Hope Sport Award, as the number one fundraiser of any sports organisation at last year’s run.
The 2015 Perkins Great Eastern Run will set off from The Embankment in Peterborough on October 11 at 10.30am, with the Anna’s Hope fun run starting at 10am.
