Sentura steps out to raise money for Cancer Research UK

Sentura steps out to raise money for Cancer Research UK

Friday 20th September 2019 was the day of Sentura’s 24-mile walk around Rutland Water in aid of Cancer Research UK.

 

 

Friday 20th September 2019 was the day of Sentura’s 24-mile walk around Rutland Water in aid of Cancer Research UK.  As Managing Partner Laurie Pollard commented, ‘This was a first for the Sentura Group team.  Having done lots of different events and fundraising for various charities over the years, this is the first physical challenge the team has undertaken.’

 

The walk began and ended at Sykes Lane, covering the whole 24 mile circuit! The first group of walkers set off at 7:30am going from Skyes Lane to Lyndon Visitor Centre Car Park, then it was over to the second team to cover the next 7.1 miles from Lyndon to the End of the Hambleton Peninsular, where the second team met up with the third group for some lunch before they took over and did the last leg. The Sentura team thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of the walk with some of the team doing the whole 24 miles!

 

The sun came out and the team were very lucky with not one spot of rain at all, it could not have been a more perfect day to complete the walk whilst soaking up the last bit of sun before winter officially starts!

 

Overall, the day was incredibly successful having raised £3,222 and with a couple more weeks to try and reach the target of £3,500 to donate to Cancer Research.  Sentura’s Managing Partner Laurie Pollard said ‘We wanted to raise money for Cancer Research UK as some members of the team as well as their friends and families have been affected by cancer, so it is a cause close to our hearts and the money we raise for this very worthwhile cause will make all the blisters the team gained worth it!'

 

The Sentura team are hoping to reach the final target so please donate today at https://fundraise.cancerresearchuk.org/page/senturarutlandwaterwalk
