Putting the "Foot" in Foot Anstey

24th September 2016

A team of seven from our corporate partners, Foot Anstey, ran their own relay from Cape Cornwall to Porthcurno to raise funds to support us. Senior Associate Laura Millman explains why.

"We organised this run to show our commitment to supporting the work of Meningitis Now and how proud we are to continue Foot Anstey's partnership with the charity in 2016."

"Being a Brighter Future Partner means so much to us – it's a true partnership, and gives Foot Anstey the opportunity to help make a difference for those whose lives have been touched by this devastating illness."

"We were lucky that the weather was kind for the run, and the route allowed us to appreciate the inspiring beauty of the Cornish coast. In total the route covered 12.5 miles of coastal paths, comprising steep climbs and some perilous scrambles downhill!"

"The team has raised £610 so far (and still counting) for Meningitis Now, which we hope will help towards continuing to save lives and rebuilding futures."

“All in all, a great result and a great day out!”

The Foot Anstey team comprised Katja Robins, Kat Pearce, Craig Ford, Gary Walker, Claire Leslie, Lindsey Connett and Laura Millman.
