What a huge achievement for Julie Haigney of Mayfair Office members Allan Morris of Worcestershire and her good friend Joanne Vanes. They were among 3,400 runners participating in the Shakespeare Marathon and Half Marathon in Stratford-upon Avon on Sunday 25th April 2010. A 9:30am start for the two athletes’, as they spurred each other on, with the sun shining down on all of the runners, making this a competitive yet pleasantly atmospheric day.
Runners, joggers, walkers and talkers… all performing their very best to get
to the finish line, with Julie and Joanne themselves achieving a respectable
time of under 2 hours.
How do you feel we ask? “So relieved and proud”, Julie Haigney said, “It was
warm on Sunday which proved more challenging, but we kept each other
going to the finish line”.
Julie Haigney is a Sales Negotiator for Redditch Office Estate Agents –
Allan Morris & Burford and Joanne Vanes is a Sales Manager in Alcester.
Together they have pushed one another on, and in turn have raised money
for an excellent cause, one which touches many peoples’ hearts.
Allan Morris, Worcestershire decided that they would have Macmillan
Cancer Support as their charity of choice.
“We are a large organisation with 9 offices throughout Worcestershire and
our Mayfair Office in London, and we were happy to sponsor such a worthy
cause that is important to so many people. It is good to give something back
to the community” quoted Mary Burford, Director of Allan Morris,
The two runners have indicated that they will be training for the London
Marathon in 2011, but until then…..put your feet up! Julie and Joanne have raised between them £1,830; this will go some way to assist Macmillan Cancer Support.
