Fun, Sun and over £300 raised for SERV Norfolk - a great day for One Broker at Run Norwich

On Sunday the 6th of August, 2 of One Broker’s own completed 10k at Run Norwich. In aid of our Charity of the Year, Blood Bikes, the duo raised over £300 for the organisation, with donations still being collected.

The race kicked off at Gentleman’s Walk in Norwich’s city centre, metres from the finish line outside City Hall. A stretch of 10 kilometres, encompassing Carrow Road, Rose Lane and the beautiful Cathedral grounds, was covered by the runners.

Proudly wearing their red Blood Bikes running vests, Ashley Jones and Emily Bridges both beat their target race times, collectively raising £320 (and counting) for Blood Bikes. The organisation is a non-government funded charity which completes an essential role in delivering blood products and donated breast milk to NHS services outside of working hours.

Group Financial Controller Ashley Jones, who finished the race in an impressive 53 minutes, said "I had a lot of fun running round the course, helped along by the shouts of support from the crowd and fellow Blood Bike runners. The free Adnams beer at the end of the race was also a very good incentive to keep me going!".
