The management team at city centre heritage offices Aizlewood’s Mill have successfully completed the 10k Great Yorkshire Run raising £236 for caring causes Macmillan Cancer Care and the Children’s Hospital, Sheffield.
The Mill’s business centre manager, Kate Levick, decided to raise funds for these charities when administrator Stephanie Scott suggested having a collection tin on the reception desk to start raising sponsorship for these invaluable charities that impact so many Sheffield lives.
“We regularly hold charity days to raise money for good causes and build team spirit among our 30 tenants and thought we should lead by example,” said Kate.
Services manager Gaynor Wilson said: “Kate talked me into signing up for the Great Yorkshire 10K run. I had never run more that 5K before, so I started to train and was able to comfortably run 9K.
“I felt nervous and excited on the morning of the race, it was an unusually warm day for the end of September so it was probably a bit tougher that it should have been.
“The end of the course was uphill, so that last kilometre was agony on my legs – but I managed it and I felt proud of myself and thanked Kate for persuading me to go for it.”
