The team at Andover and Whitchurch-based estate agents, Graham & Co, has raised almost £2,000 for local charity Enham Trust by running the Bath Half Marathon on 16 October.
Directors Wayne and Guy, Mortgage Adviser Tristan and Estate Agents Ben, Nick and Dion ran 13.1 miles through the streets of Bath for the 40th year of the half marathon. They’ve smashed their fundraising target of £1,500 for Enham Trust, with the total currently standing at £1,965.
Dion and Tristan completed the half marathon in inflatable bathtubs complete with rubber ducks.
Based just outside of Andover, Enham Trust supports people with disabilities to live and work as independently as possible.
The team had originally signed up to complete the run in May, but the event was postponed due to Covid disruption.
Graham & Co take on a challenge every year to raise funds for charity. Last year, the team climbed Pen y Fan in Wales and raised over £2,000 for Andover Foodbank, and previous challenges include a parachute jump for the Air Ambulance and running the London Marathon for Naomi House.
The estate agents, based on London Street, are active members of the local community. They have recently launched a partnership with Andover Foodbank where each month, they put aside a portion of their property sales to buy much-needed stock for the foodbank.
Wayne Turpin, one of Graham & Co’s Directors, said:
“We’re so pleased to have completed the Bath Half as this year’s challenge for charity – we’ve been waiting almost a year for this one. Enham Trust is an incredible local charity that does amazing work for people with disabilities, so we’re proud to be raising money for them this year.
“It’s amazing that we’ve smashed our target of £1,500 – thanks to everyone who’s donated already!”
