Pickerings People In Charity Fundraising

This Summer Pickerings people all over the country will be involved in supporting charities in their fund-raising efforts.

Many of our colleagues are competing in Pretty Muddy events for Cancer Research UK where participants choose to run a course of either 5k or 10k as well as manoeuvring several muddy obstacles. These include clambering an A-frame, climbing over hurdles, scrambling under nets and wading through a mud pit – but all the while having lots of fun and raising money for those that need it.

Other events our people are supporting include the Macmillan Coffee Morning – the world’s biggest coffee morning - and the Great Northern Run. This event takes place annually and is the world’s largest half marathon where participants run between Newcastle upon Tyne and South Shields.
