Partners and staff from Seymours had good reason to celebrate after successfully completing The Seymours Relay 2014. The relay lasted eight hours, covered 12 offices across 65 miles, saw over 25 people participate and raised over £3,700 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The event, which took place on Wednesday 14 May, was launched following the success of the inaugural event in 2013. It raised over £1,000 more than last year’s total and beat this year’s £3,000 target by almost a third.
Anna Rowsell, partner at Seymours in Addlestone, comments: “We’re absolutely delighted to have not only met our target but smashed it. With so many charity events taking place on a daily basis it’s often difficult to compete for the public’s support however something about The Seymours Relay has captured the attention of the Surrey community and helped us raise a significant amount for a fantastic charity.”
The starting gun was fired in Addlestone before the relay’s participants worked their way around West Surrey, taking in Woking, Knaphill and Guildford before crossing the finishing line at The Onslow Arms in West Clandon. The legs ranged from 1.7 to 11 miles in length.
Helene Poursain, Surrey Fundraising Manager for Macmillan, adds: “The Seymours Relay is not only a physically demanding challenge but one that draws on teamwork, is really inclusive and, more importantly, is great fun. Seymours has once again raised enough money to fund a Macmillan Clinical Specialist for nearly a month and we thank them for their continued support and great efforts once again.”
