We've smashed our charity goal for Cancer Research UK

Optimum Finance Team at the Bristol 10K

The amazing Optimum Finance team have raised a staggering amount for Cancer Research UK by running the Great Bristol 10K.

Our team usually spend their day supporting small and medium businesses with access to funding but decided to take part after a vote to make Cancer Research UK the company’s chosen charity for 2021.

The determined runners beat all expectations, smashing their original £1,000 target with the final amount raised hitting an incredible £6,000. Generous donations from JRJ Group, Dancerace, Hilton Baird, Atlantic RMS, Rougemont Estates, and many others including friends and family, helped to reach the final amount.

Optimum’s CEO, Ant Persse, said “I’m so proud of the team we have here at Optimum. We suggested the idea of supporting a charity to staff and they came back with a cause that had close personal ties to many of us in the office. Working together for such a good cause spurred us on to complete the Great Bristol 10K, our first of many.”

After the huge success, plans are already under way to join the run next year along with other potential fund-raising opportunities.

Donations are still open and can be made online at Optimum Finance | Cancer Research UK Giving Pages.
