A cross country 10k run has raised more than £1,000 for a hospice caring for terminally ill people.

The annual Thomann-Hanry 10k run took place from Kings Langley, on Friday, August 14, boosting funds for Hospiscare in Exmouth and Lympstone, in Devon, which has helped family members of the London company.

Runner left The Old Palace Pub in Kings Langley, taking a route around the outskirts of the historic town and back to pub where they were greeted by well wishers, supporters and a welcome glass of Prosecco.

More than £1,000 was raised for the Exmouth and Lympstone hospice which provides care and dedicated support to people who are terminally ill. Funds are constantly needed for this cherished facility that helps more than 650 families a year.

Juan Cortizo, head of Restoration at Thomann-Hanry, organised the run and he said: “Hospiscare Exmouth is a charity close to home after it provided support to our family in difficult times. The work of charities like Hospiscare is so essential, but they need constant public support. Thomann-Hanry, thankfully, is thriving and we are committed to sharing in our success by increasing our support of charities both in and out of London.”

Juan is now hoping to run the London Marathon for Hospiscare next April and aiming to raise a further £3,000 to help the hospice.
