Well done the Dream Team! By Ginny Studd, Financial Director
Sowerbys Dream Team celebrated 10 years of Dream Team/Race for Life when a team of 18 women took part in the Race for Life at Houghton Hall on Tuesday 21st July.
On a lovely sunny summers evening just under 2000 ladies ran, jogged and walked their way around a 5k course to raise money for Cancer Research. Every runner was taking part in celebration of the life of someone touched by cancer, both past and present.
The Dream Team set out to raise £1000 with the promise of a further £500 from the Directors if that goal was reached. Well as I write, we have smashed that!! At the moment, with Gift Aid included we have just gone past £3700 which is a phenomenal achievement, and one that all the team are justly very proud.
Already the Dream Team are planning next year’s event, some have already signed up.
"A massive thank you!! For all the extra work you put in to help our chain alongâ€¦not sure weâ€™d have got there without it! Very much appreciated. "
