Pontypool 10K runners at Mamhilad Park Estate raise more than £2,000 for St David’s Hospice

STAFF at Mamhilad Park Estate raised more than £2,000 for St David’s Hospice Care through the Pontypool 10K Home Run.

The Torfaen business park, owned by Johnsey Estates, entered a team of four runners to take part in the annual fundraising event.

The event attracted around 400 runners, who braved the difficult conditions to take part in the run through Pontypool Park and the surrounding areas.

Mamhilad Park Estate also sponsored the event, and, combined with the amounts raised by the runners, in total raised more than £2,000 for the Hospice.

Sam Williams, marketing executive at Mamhilad Park Estate and one of the runners, said: “It was a great, well organised event which we thoroughly enjoyed.

“Mamhilad Park Estate is keen to give something back to the community and we were delighted to be able to support such a great cause as St David’s Hospice Care which does such fantastic work throughout our community.”

Race organiser Christie Vorres, of St David’s Hospice Care, said: “Sponsoring and taking part in an event such as this shows real commitment.

“It’s great to have Mamhilad Park Estate on board. We can’t thank them enough for all that they have done for the charity.”
