Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom, September 23, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- The Gateshead-based firm has been working closely with the Newcastle-upon-Tyne based children’s cancer charity over the past few months to show their support for the amazing work that founders Ged and Julie Hoburn undertake in memory of their daughter.
“I’m pleased to report that we ran the world’s greatest half marathon in under two hours and reached our goal of raising £1,500 for Sara’s Hope, two achievements that make our months of training and hard work so worth it! It is a great honour to support such an inspirational cause and with help from Newcastle United Football Club, our customers and local colleges, we were able to raise the essential funds the charity needs to help children and young people with cancer, and their families,” said Tony Earnshaw, founder and owner of UK Commercial Cleaning Solutions.
Sara’s Hope Foundation aims to give those affected by all types of cancer the respite they need to strengthen relationships and create happy, lasting memories. Inspired by the late Sara Hoburn, the charity has helped to give smiles, hope and precious moments to countless children and their families, providing a much needed break from their holiday retreat in Crete from long hospital stays, traumatic medical procedures and cancer related treatments.
Tony added: “Sara’s two year battle against a rare form of colon cancer at the tender age of 16 and the foundation’s work since are what kept our team motivated from the minute we started out to when we passed the finish line. The money raised will help send more families away for holidays during the next year, and we’re pleased to announce that there are many more fundraisers to come to further support great charities within the area.”
