Over 840 professionals from across the property and construction sectors raced and raised money for Britain's young homeless at yesterday’s 21st annual LandAid 10K. Competition was fierce as runners raced to smash personal bests and course records.
Ackroyd Lowrie's own team of runners came out in force yesterday. Architectural Assistant Andy Wilkinson crossed the finish line first, shortly followed by Oliver Lowrie, Andrea Schrader and our newest team member Tarryn Leeferink.
The event, now in its third decade, has become one of the property industry’s most popular sporting challenges with places for this year’s 10K run selling fast again.
Thanks to the fundraising efforts of the industry, LandAid has already raised over £94,000 of its £100,000 target. All donations from this year’s LandAid’s 10K will go directly to helping two life changing projects in London: the funding of a private rental sector worker at New Horizon’s Youth Centre in Camden, who will help young homeless people to access accommodation in the private rental sector. And also to XLP, a mentoring project for disadvantaged young people in south London.
Paul Morrish, Chief Executive of LandAid, said: “This is my third time running the LandAid 10K, and it was even better than last year. The money raised at this year’s run will make a huge difference to young people in London, helping them to have better futures. A huge thank you to Evans Randall Investors and all of those who ran yesterday, who have helped us to take a step towards ending youth homelessness.”
