They’ve done it again! Our 14 Cardinal Maritime runners successfully completed the BUPA 10k Manchester Run this May, raising £925 for our chosen charity The Wellspring. Charlie McGonagle, Chris Bartram, Chris Day, Chris Heath, Craig Cooper, Dean Forkin, Dean Preston, Elizabeth Ellis, Natalie Gillard, Nick Thompson, Nova Sarkissian, Phoebe Fox, Sarah Lawrenson and Rob Cross collectively smashed last year’s total by £175.
As part of Europe’s biggest 10k running event, more than a quarter of a million passionate runners took to the streets of Manchester to achieve their individual goals. Since 2003, the Great Manchester Run has attracted swarms of people year on year with Cardinal Maritime being no exception.
The Wellspring, based in Stockport, actively engage and care for the homeless and disadvantaged. As well as helping with accommodation, The Wellspring provide educational help to enable these individuals in the long run. As they are dependent on both financial and material donations, we thought this was a worthwhile charity to receive our support each year.
