Two Managers at Douglas Stafford have completed the Osborne Run to raise money for the Mountbatten Hospice!
Father and daughter team, Nigel and Madelaine Cook, took part in the fundraising fun run across the grounds of Osborne House on Sunday 30th June, which saw 550 runners take part.
The family-friendly event launched in 2017 and attracts participants of all ages and abilities, from novice runners to more experienced athletes.
Mountbatten is the Isle of Wight’s only hospice, with an approximate annual cost of £7 million to provide the expert medical and nursing services to those in the last years of their lives.
Since the hospice only receives £2 million from NHS Commissioners, the staff at Mountbatten are tasked with raising £5 million annually to keep doing the incredible work that they do.
Participants had the option of completing a 3km, 5km or the newly-added 10k distance, with both Nigel and Madelaine opting for the 5k option.
Nigel Hartley, Mountbatten’s Chief Executive, said: “It was amazing to see so many people running in support of us. It’s always very moving because many of those taking part have had experience of our work and really want to give something back.”
Well done, Nigel and Madelaine!
