Two members of staff donned their running shoes and successfully completed the Liverpool Women’s 10k run in Sefton Park on Sunday. While other Armstrongs employees organised a tombola giveaway in the ASDA store in Bootle.

Kelly Woodman and Laurinda Holden raised £430 between them and finished the race together in a respectable one hour five minutes.

And last Saturday’s tombola extravaganza, organised by Hannah Worswick,  raised £300 thanks to the generous support of local businesses who provided the majority of the 70 prizes, ranging from bottles of brandy to boxes of chocolates and flowers.

Speaking about the fundraising efforts Armstrongs said: “We are delighted with everybody’s efforts over the weekend. An extra big thanks goes out to Kelly and Laurinda who had a few aches and pains on Monday but it’s all in aid of a great cause.

“And we would also like to thank all the kind local businesses who donated so generously to our tombola giveaway in Bootle.

“Without their support it would never have been such a success. We are now well on track to raise £10,000 for North West Cancer Research Fund by the end of the year.”
