RHO walkers 'Shine' for Cancer Research

Tuesday 29 September 2015

Six colleagues from Riverside Home Ownership completed a gruelling 26.2 mile walking marathon in aid of Cancer Research UK last Sunday morning, 27th September.

 The annual charity Shine walk through London took place overnight with the team being sponsored for each mile.

Catherine Corkish said: "We're so grateful for the generous support of our colleagues, friends and families for raising so much money for this really good cause. Our weekends of training definitely paid off!"

Fiona Morear, Catherine Corkish, Rachael Pauls, Vicki Maguire, Ben Mousley and Jennifer Hudston set off from Southwark Park at 10pm on Saturday evening, eventually finishing a little bleary eyed just after 8am the following morning.

Combined with the division's cake sales, quizzes and collections, over £1,300 has been raised so far from around Riverside with over £200 more in pledges still to roll in.
