Marathon challenge for Solihull bank staff breaks target for Acorns hospice donations

Solihull Editorial 12th May, 2020   0

STAFF at a Solihull bank are using their lockdown time to run 26 marathons in 26 days in aid of Acorns Childrens Hospice.

The team from Metro Bank have already broken their original fundraising target of £500, having run over 600 miles already between them.

Local director of Metro Solihull, Leon Sloyan, said: “We took on a challenge to raise funds for the brilliant Acorns Children’s Hospice – charities are really feeling the pinch during these difficult times as events are cancelled and opportunities to raise funds are limited. We set a target of £500 but we are now well on our way to reaching £700.”

Running in the Warwickshire countryside, around Warwick as well as Solihull, the team are logging all their runs on tracking app Strava.
