'Place Pacers' pound the streets for local Breast Cancer charity

A six-strong team from local land and property management company Place Partnership swapped their steel toe caps for sweatbands this weekend as they took on the Worcester half marathon.

The ‘Place Pacers’ team, comprising of Richard Willett, Lindsay Harris, Matthew Roy, Maggie Johnson, Penny Unwin and Paul Thatcher, took on the thirteen-mile course in support of the Worcestershire Breast Unit Haven.

Surveyor Richard, who pulled the team together, said:

“As a Worcester-based company, we’re proud to support local initiatives and charities whenever possible. We’re all keen(ish) runners, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity to get out there and take part.

Whilst the course was tough, the thought of making a positive difference to those battling breast cancer across Worcestershire certainly kept us going!”

Place Partnership delivers a range of services across 1,300 land and property assets that it oversees on behalf of six public sector organisations. These assets include schools, libraries, community centres, commercial buildings, police stations, fire stations, retail and leisure facilities, agricultural land and smallholdings.
