Prestons to support Richard House in London 10,000

Staff  from Prestons Chartered Accountants are once again lining up to run the London 10,000 for Richard House.

It will be the fourth time in a row staff from the Ilford-based firm have run the race for the hospice, having raised £15,000 over the previous three years.

Anver Patel, one of the directors at Prestons, said: “Richard House is the perfect charity to support because of the fantastic work they do with children with life-limiting conditions and their families, this is our way of putting something back into the local community.”

Anver’s determination to support the charity is such that even though last year he blacked out 50 yards from the finish line due to dehydration, and was carried over the line by some of the other runners, he still managed to achieve his personal best time and is back for more this year!

Anna Bates, Head of Community and Events at the hospice, said: “Prestons have been fantastic supporters of Richard House, with this being their 4th time running in the London 10,000 for us. The money they raise is vital in helping us to continue supporting our children and families.”

All our allocated spaces for the London 10,000 have now sold out but if you already have a place and would like to fundraise for Richard House, please email tommu@richardhouse.org.uk or call 0207 540 0228.
