Newspaper staff raised £500 for a mental health charity after a sponsored run.
Lynn News reporter Rebekah Chilvers raised the cash for West Norfolk Mind after taking part in the Greater East Anglian Run.
Rebekah took part in the 10k run through the streets of King’s Lynn alongside colleagues Richard Wikins, media sales consultant, and Scott Young, media sales manager.
A cheque for the amount raised from the event was formally presented to a representative of the charity last month.
Said Rebekah: “I am so pleased with the final total, especially as I set my target at £100, and I would like to thank everyone who sponsored me – in particular Downham Rotary Club and Ray Harding of West Norfolk Council who donated significant amounts.
“I decided to fundraise for West Norfolk Mind as mental health issues can affect such a large number of people and this charity is a vital service to some of those affected in our area.”
Zena Penty, volunteer co-ordinator at West Norfolk Mind, added: “We would like to say a huge thank you to Rebekah for choosing to support us and for raising such a significant amount of money contributing towards our largest total from the GEAR run of just under £3,000.”
