Staff from Sintons raise money for charity at this year’s Great North Run
Runners from across the firm of all levels of fitness and experience are running in this year’s event – which is the world’s biggest half marathon, expected to attract over 57,000 participants to the 13.1 mile course – supporting a range of good causes in the process.
Sintons’ charity of the year for 2016, the Great North Air Ambulance Service (GNAAS), is among those to benefit, including the firm’s annual charities from both the previous two years, Tiny Lives and Macmillan Cancer Care, continuing the Sintons tradition of offering ongoing support to charities where possible.
Other charities which Sintons’ staff are running for are The Alzheimer’s Society, St Oswald’s Hospice, the Toma Fund, Cancer Connections and Mesothelioma UK.
Amanda Maskery, chair of Sintons’ CSR committee, which actively encourages participation in CSR activities across the firm, said: “We are renowned at Sintons for our commitment to the community and to giving our support to good causes, so it is brilliant to see so many of our people raising money for such a wide array of charities.
“As a firm, we are supporting GNAAS as our staff charity for 2016, but this event helps to highlight the additional fundraising we do here, including for previous annual charities.
“We know the time and dedication all of our runners have committed to their training and wish them all the best of luck for Sunday.”
