Cecil needs YOU!



Cecil_Edey.jpgCecil Edey, Chief Executive at Orvia, will be putting his running shoes on later this month to take part in the Manchester 10k Run on 20 May. This is the 10th staging of this fantastic event which welcomes elite international athletes, celebrities and members of the public to compete together and each year the event raises a huge amount of money in the process.

Cecil’s chosen charity for the event is St Catherine’s Hospice.

Cecil said: “At Orvia we have enjoyed a long standing relationship with St Catherine’s Hospice but the main reason I have decided to run on their behalf is a personal one. My father became terminally ill and died when I was a teenager. The facilities and extensive nature of care provided by St Catherine’s wasn’t available to us as a family when my father became ill. St Catherine’s do an absolutely tremendous job caring for terminally ill people and their families which is carried out with the upmost dignity and professionalism, but they are reliant on the generosity of the public to keep their services going.

It is an honour to run on their behalf and I would encourage anybody and everybody to donate whatever they can, large or small. Every penny is welcome and will make a real difference to the lives of the families supported by St Catherine’s.”

Cecil aims to complete the run in around 40 minutes. If you would like to support him please click HERE.

Thank you Cecil for supporting St Catherine's!
