Polesworth Garage fun run raises over £8,700 for charity

Crowds gather outside Polesworth Garage

After a huge success last year, Polesworth Garage and The Office at Warton have teamed up again and organised another charity fun run; helping to raise money for their long-standing charity of choice – Cancer Research UK.

Hundreds participated as they endured the three-mile race from Polesworth Garage to The Office at Warton. After people had flocked to the chequered flag they could spend the rest of the afternoon playing their chances at the charity raffle; with nearly 100 prizes donated by local residents and businesses up for grabs.

Whilst The Office at Warton were counting the monies raised, Martin Newbold of Polesworth Garage kindly donated a further £2,000 towards the total helping to bring the final amount to a staggering £8,778.35!
