Staff members from Bloor Homes taking part in the inaugural Greenham Common Half Marathon and 10K event on February 25





Team members from Bloor Homes, sponsors of the inaugural Greenham Common Half Marathon and 10K event, will be taking part in the race this weekend.

Three members of staff from the housing developer will be running to raise money for the event’s charity, New Life which has been supporting special care baby units across the UK for almost thirty years.

Money raised from the Greenham Common event will help provide much needed life-saving equipment for the units, some of which are not available on the NHS.

Lesley Wellman, Carol Reading and Clare Darling, who all work in different departments at Bloor Homes, are either running or volunteering to help with this weekend’s race

Lesley Wellman, Carol Reading and Aaron Mahoney, who all work in different departments at Bloor Homes, will all run the 10K race.

A fourth member of staff, Clare Darling, is assisting at the event, which takes place on Sunday morning (February 25).

Mrs Darling has been helping to organise the event after her friend Mark Hayes came up with the idea.

She said: “My husband and I have known Mark for some time through running and helped him with a different event in the past.

“When he decided to set up the Greenham Common Half Marathon and 10K, we naturally volunteered to help here too.

“Bloor Homes has been really supportive with the medals, which are all made from wood to be as sustainable as possible.

“The event sold out once, so we extended the number of places which meant extra medals too.”

Bloor Homes managing director John Lusty added: “It was really good to hear this first event has been so popular – it shows how much local support there is for this important charity.

“We have a long history in the local area and are delighted to support this event by sponsoring the medals to commemorate the first Greenham Common event for the runners and organisers.

“Good luck to Lesley, Carol, Aaron and all the runners, and well done to Clare and all the organisers and volunteers who have worked hard to make the event such a success.”
