A team from Optimum Professional Services have boosted the funds of their favourite charity by stepping out for a half marathon.

A group of ten walked or - in two cases - ran a 13.5 mile route along the Ridgeway Trail, from Liddington to Avebury, in aid of Youth Adventure Trust.

The Trust works to support vulnerable young people throughout Swindon and Wiltshire.

This is the second consecutive year Optimum have supported the charity, and altogether they have so far raised in excess of £4,000 – the half marathon alone should bring in around £1,000.

Optimum is based in Swindon, with an office in Cheltenham, and specialises in providing accountancy and legal services.

It supports a charity every year, with a range of fundraising events. The big-hearted team also helps other causes causes, including Swindon Food Collective and Red Nose Day.

Taking part from Optimum were directors Michael Blaken, Tracey Heath and Rob Stokes, along with Liz Grange, Clair Stenning, Claire Presdee and Tracey Alexander. Also joining in, were the partners of some of the participants: Colin King, Julian Presdee and Gary Alexander.

Tracey Heath, Operation Director, said: “We were blessed with very good weather, which made the event all the more pleasurable.

"We are really enjoying supporting Youth Adventure Trust, which does such a great job in helping vulnerable young people to unlock their potential and lead positive lives in the future.”

Fundraising is still going on for the half marathon. To make a donation to the team, members of the public can visit https://youthadventuretrust.enthuse.com/cf/optimum-half-marathon-2022.
