Managing director of Shrewsbury based IT experts Shropshire ITC is once again undertaking the epic 100km Thames Path challenge in September 2017. 

Setting off from Putney and ending in Henley, this 100km run is considered one of the most prestigious and challenging ultra marathons of the year and has over 5000 entrants, all seeking to raise funds for their chosen charity.

Although head of a busy IT business, Vince has taken time out of his hectic schedule to train for this daunting challenge.

Speaking from his offices in Shrewsbury, Vince said “I took on the challenge last year and despite the blisters and sore muscles it was a wonderful experience”

“Not only was it a great personal challenge, it was also wonderful to be part of a large group of people all putting themselves through a gruelling ordeal to raise a huge amount of money.”

“Having completed last years race I immediately signed up for this years event and I decided that this year I would raise money for a wonderful charity called SHINE (www.shinecharity.org )”

“SHINE is a fantastic charity that raise funds to support those affected by Spina-bifida and Hydrocephalus, something that has directly impacted on my family. So it was a an easy choice to select them for my choice of charity partner.”

“In addition to raising funds via my Just Giving page ( www.justgiving.com/fundraising/vincedovey ) I am also putting on a number of charity quiz nights on in the coming months.”

“The first quiz night is to be held at 8.00pm on Thursday 13th July at the Woodman pub on Coton Hill in Shrewsbury and along with prizes for the winners there will also be raffle prizes and a free buffet.”

“The landlord and landlady of The Woodman are well known for their charity work and I cannot think of a better place to hold the pub quiz so I would like to thank them for their kind support.”

“In addition to my Just Giving page and the quiz night, if there are any local people or businesses who would like to donate then they can also contact me directly at vince.dovey@sitc-group.com”

“I would also like to thank my co-workers at Shropshire ITC for their support. We are having an extremely busy year with new and existing clients, so without their hard work and support I would not be able to find the time to get in some very much needed training”
