Trail runners raise funds

Sporting staff at Luke Evans Bakery in Riddings have raised more than £700 for charity after taking part in a 10k race.

Staff chose Breast Cancer Research and a charity that helps those affected by the Pseudomyxoma Peritonei (PMP) as the beneficiaries of their fund-raising run at Sherwood Pines in Nottingham. It comes after one of the staff’s mother’s had suffered from the rare cancer.

Operations director Helen Waterfall said it was the first time many of the staff had attempted the distance.

She said: “It was a wonderful team effort from all the staff at Luke Evans. The support we received was overwhelming and really kept us going. Pseudomyxoma Survivor and Breast Cancer Research are both charities that are very close to our hearts.”

The bakery used the occasion to unveil the firm’s new logo. Helen said: “We wanted a new logo to reflect what we stand for, a forward-thinking business, providing high quality craft bakery products while still being loyal to our 200-year-old heritage.”
