We’re really proud of you and delighted that your generous friends and colleagues at BES helped to raise such a fantastic amount! Matt’s story:
“I first decided to run the Fleetwood 10k to set myself a personal target, mainly just to get myself fit and to give me a goal to work towards.
After a few recent tragic deaths in my hometown of
I took the decision to raise money for a new community group, “Men’s Shed Fleetwood”, who are currently raising funds to achieve charity status and set up a permanent base within Fleetwood.
The group was set up to support local men who need some support with poor mental health. It was a challenge but I completed the 10K and was thrilled to have managed it – it was great to have my daughter waiting at the finish line for me!
With the amazing support of my family, friends and colleagues I have raised over £600.00 to help “Men’s Shed Fleetwood” to help achieve their goal, plus I haves achieved my personal target of completing the 10K.
If the money raised can even help support one person in the community, then it’s a job well done as far as I’m concerned. Everyone has been so kind with their donations and I know that all the money raised will be very much appreciated.”
