Recruiter Raising Monies For Macmillan

Recruiter Raising Monies For Macmillan
A local Norwich businessman and rugby enthusiast is hoping to get his own 15 together and raise thousands of pounds for charity!
But this team will not just be running on the pitch - but over 13 miles when they take part in the Larking Gowen City of Norwich Half Marathon.
Richard Morrissey has been raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support since 2005, after he lost his father-in-law to the disease, and is delighted that it is this years chosen charity for the Half Marathon. He is hoping to add to the 12,000 that he has already raised for Macmillan over the past five years.
Now he is hoping his fellow rugby players at Swaffham RUFC, as well as friends and colleagues from his company Quattro Recruitment Ltd, will join him. This will be the fourth time he has undertaken something similar, having previously taken part in events such as the Three Peaks Challenge and the Nottingham Half Marathon.
People have always been very supportive of this great charity and I hope they will again, said Richard. I have set myself the goal of breaking two hours and will be training properly this time around, both running and by carrying out some gym work.
Added Mark Curtis, partner at Larking Gowen, The Half Marathon is all about having fun and taking part but there is another side to it, and we are delighted that in the three years we have sponsored the event, over 100,000 has been raised for local charities.
Richard has a great track record of fundraising for Macmillan and we are delighted he, and his friends and colleagues, will be doing their best to add to that total. They will be joining around 3,000 other runners in what has become a major event on the athletics calendar.
Said Jenni Maxwell, Macmillans fundraising manager for Norfolk and Suffolk, Macmillan are extremely grateful for all of Richard's efforts. Our charity is close to his heart, and it is great to have somebody who is helping us make such a difference to those affected by cancer.
