A team more used to tackling fit-outs than keep fit have pledged to tackle all 13.1 miles of the Potters ‘Arf on June 12th to raise cash for the Peter Pan Nursery.
Training for the road race has already started for workmates Richard Simpson, Neil Rowley and James Ball of expert design team Planned Office Interiors based in Stone as completing the whole course has now become a matter of male pride
Richard Simpson, director of Planned Office Interiors, said:
“We chose to raise money for the Peter Pan Nursery in Newcastle as we read about how they lost their Lottery funding, and how they have to find over £250,000 each year just to keep the doors open.
“Between us we’ve set ourselves a target of raising £1,000 for the nursery and really we’d like to raise more than that. I’ve never run the Potters’ Arf before and I’ve heard it’s tough, but I do keep fit through cycling and regular sessions at the gym every week so hopefully I should get round the course – but I’m not so sure about Neil and James!
“We’ve set up a justgiving page so people can easily make a donation, as the nursery is a really worthy local charity providing care and support to children with special needs and their families.”
This year marks the 45th anniversary of the nursery which works to support children from birth to five years old with a wide range of disabilities and conditions from cerebral palsy to Down’s syndrome and visual and hearing impairments.
