With Oswestry 10K fast approaching, companies in the Evans Enterprises group are increasing their training and fundraising efforts.

Document management specialists EvaStore held a charity auction and golf day at Oswestry Golf Club in May, which raised over £2000 for Hope House Children’s Hospices.

They are now partnering with other companies in the group to raise even more money. Together with family businesses Aluroll, Roché Systems, Globestock and The Fort Business Centre a team of 10 runners has been entered into the event, with a fundraising target of £2000.

The run will be held on Sunday October 13th and is the first of its kind for Oswestry. The route encompasses the town centre and Morda, towards Trefonen and back into town. Hundreds of runners have already signed up, with thousands of spectators expected to attend.

Alan Lewis, event organiser, said: “We’re delighted to have Evans Enterprises participating in Oswestry 10K. Hope House is our official charity partner and I know they will appreciate the extra support from the team. It’s great to see a mix of abilities, from first-timers to experienced marathon runners, all getting on board to support this worthy cause.”
