The fourth MUNDAYS FUN RUN in aid of Princess Alice Hospice on Tuesday 7 June saw 167 dedicated runners fill Bushy Park, Hampton Court - judging by the time taken by some very serious athletes it was not just the fun runners taking part.



This year’s event has raised over £2,900. The funds were boosted by the very popular cake stall stocked by the company’s staff and Hospice volunteers and staff. The total raised over the last 4 years from the event is in excess of £9500. This is in addition to all the other fundraising and support given by Mundays to the Hospice through their Golf Society, support at Trivia with Tarrant and many other events.


The event continues to be very popular with many local companies including Baker Tilly, Barclays Corporate, Blacktower Financial Advisers, Clydesdale Bank, QiComm, Kingston Smith, Midgeley Smelling, Menzies and many others taking part. Mundays led by example with a large team taking part. Edward Moss who will be joining the company in September 2011 was the first man across the line in an impressive 20 mins 34 seconds; followed by Peter Brown of Harmes Turner Brown, and Jamie Crittall of Beech House Vets just under a minute later.


A runner with connections to Mundays, Lucy Withers (photographed above with Hospice mascot, Alice the Bear) a year 6 pupil at Notre Dame School and daughter of Simon Withers, Consultant at Mundays LLP ran a very impressive race in a brilliant  22 mins 54 seconds; and was followed a couple of minutes later by Lucy Wilde of Beech House Vets  and Olivia Hutchinson of Baker Tilly.


The top junior runner was 16 year old Jamie Irving, son of David Irving, Partner at Mundays LLP in an impressive 21 mins 22 seconds.


The team winners Beech House Veterinary Centre have choosen the Hospice as their ‘Human’ charity of the year and are really getting involved in the events taking place this year and have a few of their own planned. In second place was the home team of Mundays LLP followed by Baker Tilly. The team prize was supported by Savills and Mundays.


Volunteers from Princess Alice Hospice, Mundays and a host of their friends and family helped with the registration, marshalling, cake stall and smooth running of the event.


Emma O’Hara, Community and Event Fundraiser said:

‘It is great to receive the continued and dedicated support of Mundays and their staff. The company has a very longstanding and successful relationship with the charity and the additional financial support generated by their fun runs, is appreciated by everyone in the team. The £2,900 raised this year could fund 33 visits by a community Princess Alice Nurse to a patient in their home providing care, support and advice. Our specialist Nurses work with GPs and District Nurse to ensure our patients receives a consistent standard of care. We are already looking forward to next year’s event and hope to see even more runners’.
