Brownsword Supports Staff Charity Endeavours

Gill Prior, Group Compliance Manager of The Brownsword Group, is running at 3 charity events to raise money for the Dr. Hadwen Trust, starting with a 5k in Alexandra Park in June, the 5k colour run in July (pictured here after a dowsing in powder paint) and finishing with a the 10k Blackpool Illuminations Night Run in August.

Having raised over £500 so far, including a generous donation from The Brownsword Group, Gill says “I do a lot of voluntary work with animals in my spare time, but wanted to challenge myself with something outside my comfort zone; running definitely fits that bill!”colour 3
