Ralph Humphries, managing director of housewares supplier Pendeford Housewares, successfully completed the Shifnal Half Marathon at the weekend.
The race, which took place in Shropshire on Sunday June 26, was in aid of Bloodwise (the new name for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research).
Yesterday he told www.HousewaresLIve.net: “I’m completely shattered now – never again! I’d never done a Half Marathon before but when I saw the run and who they were raising the money for I couldn’t resist.
“I’d like to thank everyone from the housewares industry for their support. I’m overwhelmed.”
To date Ralph has raised more than £1,300 for Bloodwise – exceeding his £500 target by a whopping 260%. Donations can be made via Ralph’s Just Giving Page at http://www.justgiving.com/RALPHWHUMPHRIES
