A member of staff from a Specsavers in Filton will take on the SimplyHealth Great Bristol 10k to raise funds for CLIC Sargent.
Store manager, Maria Matusza, is training to complete the race on Sunday 5 May. Starting in the historic harbourside area, the route will take her through iconic Bristol landmarks including the Clifton Suspension Bridge and Avon Gorge.
‘I’m looking forward to running this route with its spectacular views,’ comments Maria. ‘CLIC Sargent do some excellent work and I’d appreciate any donation towards this heart-warming cause. Thank you to those who have donated already.’
Last year, Specsavers in Cribbs Causeway, Bradley Stoke and Filton came together and nominated CLIC Sargent as their charity partner. Teams took part in a number of fundraising challenges and events throughout the year and raised almost £7,000 for the children’s cancer charity.
CLIC Sargent provides practical, financial and emotional support for children and teenagers who have been diagnosed with cancer or leukaemia. The charity believes that children with cancer have the right to the best possible treatment, care and support throughout their cancer journey and beyond.
