Ten stride out to complete half marathon for children’s charity

Ten Stride Out for Children’s Charity: A team from Optimum Professional Services have boosted the funds of their favourite charity by stepping out for a half marathon.

A group of ten walked or – in two cases – ran a 13.5 mile route along the Ridgeway Trail, from Liddington to Avebury. All in aid of Youth Adventure Trust, which supports vulnerable young people throughout Swindon and Wiltshire.

This is the second consecutive year the firm have supported the charity. And altogether they have so far raised over £4,000. The half marathon alone should bring in around £1,000!

Optimum have their base in Swindon and with an office in Cheltenham. The firm specialises in providing accountancy and legal services. It supports a charity every year, with a range of fundraising events. The big-hearted team also helps other good causes, including Swindon Food Collective and Red Nose Day.

Taking part from Optimum were directors Michael Blaken, Tracey Heath and Rob Stokes. Accompanying them were with Liz Grange, Clair Stenning, Claire Presdee and Tracey Alexander. Also joining in were the partners of some of the participants: Colin King, Julian Presdee and Gary Alexander.

Good weather blessed us, and that made the event all the more pleasurable,’ said Tracey Heath, Operations Director. ‘We’re so enjoying supporting Youth Adventure Trust. It does such a great job in helping vulnerable young people to unlock their potential and lead positive lives in the future.
