Team runs for children’s charities

A TEAM of 17 runners from an Emersons Green company took part in this year’s Great Bristol Run Business Challenge to raise funds for Children’s Hospice South West and Bristol Children’s Hospital.

The Procentia Plodders work at a pensions administrations software firm that has entered at least one team into the run every year since 2016. 

Implementation consultant Lucy Richens said: “It creates a real buzz around the office as the day approaches and we always enjoy the event itself.

“With colleagues having different hybrid working arrangements, it’s been a chance for us to work together towards something outside of pensions software.”

The group took on the 10k course

Client success director Paul Richmond said: “There’s an amazing atmosphere at the Great Bristol Run and this year was no exception. Everyone cheering you on is so uplifting.”

The AJ Bell Great Bristol Run Business Challenge is open to any group of four or more colleagues, with no maximum number of team members and the finishing times of the fastest four members used to calculate the overall team time.
