NO DAMP SQUIB FOR SEYMOURS AS RAINY RELAY TAKES TOTAL RAISED FOR CHARITY TO OVER Â£10,000
Tue 19 May 2015
The third Seymours Relay was undoubtedly the wettest, however even the deluge did not prevent each of Seymours’ 15 offices participating in a leg of the estate agent’s annual event on Thursday 14 May, which has now raised over £10,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
With the starting gun fired in Farnham at 8am, where the Farnham office’s Managing Director, Nicholas Eaton, and his team cycled to Godalming, the relay weaved its way around Surrey going as far south as Cranleigh and as far north as Addlestone in a relay covering over 70 miles.
Max Chapman and Joss Cooper from the Worplesdon office ran the last leg from Worplesdon Road to the Onslow Arms, where the rest of the team and a celebratory drink awaited them.
On completing The Seymours Relay for the third year Max comments: “Unlike the last two events, which were sunny, warm and dry, this year’s event was cold, grey and very wet. Yet despite the weather, morale was high and our commitment to Macmillan Cancer Support remained unabated as we tackled over 70 miles, passing the baton from office to office. We’ve now had three good years of The Seymours Relay and each of the offices should be proud of what they have achieved. We now look forward to creating a new challenge for 2016 and continuing our support for local charities.”
Whilst the relay is over donations can still be made via www.justgiving.com/seymoursrelay2015 or by visiting a local Seymours office.
Jessica Blake, Fundraising Manager for Surrey at Macmillan Cancer Support, added: “The teams from each of the Seymours offices were fantastic and everyone put their heart and soul into every leg. Over the last three years the money raised through The Seymours Relay could keep a Macmillan information and support centre stocked with all the information resources it needs to support people affected by cancer for three years so on behalf of everyone at Macmillan Cancer Support, I’d like to say a big ‘thank you’ to Seymours for supporting our work and congratulations to everyone that took part throughout the day.”
