Team Howarths are ready for the off

A TEAM of women from Howarths Employment Law based in Cleckheaton are putting their best feet forward to run the 10k Great Manchester run.

The girls will be pounding the streets of Manchester on Sunday May 20 on behalf of the Forget Me Not Trust Children’s Hospice in Huddersfield.

The girls have been putting in some training wherever possible but most have never undertaken a run of this distance.

Finance director Helen Howarth said: “This is quite a challenge for some of us who are perhaps not as fit as we used to be, but it’s all in a good cause and we are really excited about the event.

“The girls here were fabulous when they heard about the run and had no hesitation in dusting off their running shoes.

“We are still looking for local businesses to sponsor us, even if it’s only for a small amount, anything we can raise for the hospice is a bonus.”

Anyone wanting to sponsor Team Howarths can call Tracey Craven on 01274 864999.
