£9,500 raised for charity

Pygott & Crone join thousands of runners in Lincoln 10K to fundraise for local charity

Pygott & Crone has raised over £9,500 in donations for Lincolnshire St Barnabas Hospice.

65 members of staff joined thousands of runners, joggers and walkers to participate in the Asda Foundation City of Lincoln 10K challenge held on 7th April 2019. Lincolnshire St Barnabas Hospice was the chosen charity, a very worthy cause which provides free, high quality, end-of-life care and support to adults living with a life-limiting or terminal illness.

With participation of over 50% of staff from all branches across Lincolnshire, and with a variety of ages and abilities taking part, it was a tremendous team effort which achieved fantastic results. Each member of staff was given an individual fundraising target and a branded running top to wear on the day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Estate agency is a competitive business and a lot of people achieved personal goals along the way, training for several months prior and sharing their progress and photos via the #pygottsran10k hashtag on Twitter. Sales negotiator, Jack Lawson, came home first with a seriously impressive time of 39.12 whilst commercial surveyor Will Cooke completed the coursed dressed as Earl, the company mascot. After collecting their medals, the team came together to enjoy a well deserved drink.

 

 

With Pygott & Crone’s previous history of charitable work and fund-raising for local communities, Director Kevin Scrupps was particularly delighted with the outcome.

“A massive well done to everyone who took part, they showed huge commitment to a great cause. I am really proud with the total raised, it was a fantastic effort from our team and thank you to everyone who donated. The support each and every one of our team, their families, friends, our customer, suppliers, and partners have given to this great charity is simply amazing. Hopefully our efforts will ensure that other people have the support they need during what is ultimately one of the most difficult times in anyone’s life.”

Paul Wood, a director of Pygott and Crone, organised the team entry and the primary motivator to get people involved back in January. He said “Having done a number of charity events in the past, I wanted to get as many staff involved as possible this time, and the Lincoln 10k seemed like the ideal event. Whilst many of our staff are keen runners, or regularly play sport, it was very pleasing to see people sign up regardless of their ability. All in all it was a fantastic experience, it was great to see everyone in matching T-shirts. I had a figure in my head of what I wanted us to raise, but the donations kept rolling in and we absolutely smashed our target.”

 

 

A final total of £9,500.32 was collected exceeding the original target of £3,500, raising 233% of donations via Just Giving and the rest in cash donations. This was officially presented to Lincolnshire St Barnabas Hospice on the 17th June.
