Jane Tomlinson Leeds 10k

On Sunday 14th July 2013, eight members of Ridley & Hall plus two guests – Andy Cash, husband of Partner Sue Cash, and Stewart Poctor, owner of Casa Gelato, a major supporter of our fund-raising campaign – took part in the Jane Tomlinson Leeds 10k.

At 9:30am, in temperatures pushing 30 degrees celsius, our intrepid runners set off on a journey that has made household names out of Olympians such such as Mo Farah.

Unfortunately, the heat prevented any personal bests being set that day, but Nigel Priestley was the firm’s golden boy as he was the first member of Team R&H to cross the finish line in a creditable 51mins. Stewart Proctor came a close second crossing the line half a minute behind and Sarah Young and Andy Cash were joint third place, crossing the line together at exactly 53 mins 30 seconds!

Team R&H finished 53rd out of 89 companies who took part in the corporate challenge, so congratulation to all who took part in this worthwhile event.

Online donations have raised £775, but we are still collecting on our sponsorship form on reception and an internal sweepstake on the R&H runners (won by the Conveyancing department’s Stephanie Bratby) so hope to announce the final total very soon.


Many thanks to everyone who has supported us!
