Following its inaugural success last year, when over £3,000 was raised for Macmillan Cancer Support, The Seymours Relay is back for 2014 and the estate agent is appealing to the Surrey community to get involved.
On Wednesday 14May partners and employees from 11 offices across Surrey will be passing the baton from office to office, either running or on a bike, covering over 60 miles in legs ranging from two to 12 miles long.
This year, Seymours has opened it to the public and anyone wishing to join in on any of the legs can. Those who are feeling fit and wanting to support Macmillan for the second annual event can do so by contacting their local Seymours office. Those less inclined to get involved but wanting to help Seymours beat the £3,000 fundraising target can do so by donating online at www.justgiving.com/seymoursrelay2014.
On taking to the road for the second time Max Chapman, Director at Seymours in Worplesdon, comments: “Macmillan Cancer Support carries out excellent work both at a regional and national level and it’s important that they continue to get the support they need. Whilst our contribution is only small in the grand scheme of things it’s important that individuals and companies keep on doing what they can and coming up with innovative events in order to capture the public’s imagination and raise as much money as possible. We feel that The Seymours Relay does just that and we’re looking forward to round two.”
The relay will commence in Addlestone and work through Woking, Guildford, Burpham, Cranleigh and Godalming before Worplesdon takes the final leg. The finishing line will be the Onslow Arms in West Clandon, where participants will celebrate with a well-earned drink.
Helene Poursain, Surrey Fundraising Manager for Macmillan, adds: “Seymours has pulled it out of the bag again. Last year’s relay was a fantastic event and it was great to see everyone get behind it. I wish the team every success and I look forward to cheering them on throughout the day.”
