Decked out in Spartan regalia, 300 managers and team members from Stonegate Pub Company’s Southern region set off at 1:00pm on the 12.5-mile walk from the Danson Stables in Bexleyheath, taking the London Road into the City and arriving at The Alice in Houndsditch crossing the finish line at around 3pm.
Adam Stothart, Stonegate Area Manager and organiser said, “We see the tremendous amount of courage these young children have in fighting life-limiting conditions and thought it appropriate to honour that bravery dressing as Spartans. We also fundraised en route to add to the sponsorship money our teams across the south have already raised. I am so proud of the effort everyone has put in and to be sitting at £50,000 before all the money has been counted is phenomenal”.
Daisy Wilson from Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice said, “We are delighted that the Stonegate pubs in the south have chosen Noah’s Ark as the beneficiary for their fundraising. It is through support and donations that we help to ensure families are able to live life as fully as possible by providing support for those who have children with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions.”
The Stonegate Spartan’s are aiming to raise over £100,000. Donations can be made via just giving.
