Hicks Baker assembles Team Santa for charity 5k run

In the spirit of Christmas and raising money for local charities in Reading, Hicks Baker entered a team of 4 to run the Santa 5k Charity run on Sunday 3rd December.

Organised by Reading Rotary this event was fundraising for Reading Family Aid, No.5 Reading Young Persons Counselling Centre, The Alzheimer’s Society, Berkshire Women’s Aid, RAHAB (Reading Voluntary Action) and PACT (a local adoption agency).

We donned our best Santa outfits and took to the streets of Reading, with plenty of support from those watching. The run took in the sights of the town centre, the Oracle and alongside the River Kennet. Our team comprising of Harry Gornall-King, Jo Reece, James Moore and Steve Head all completed the course in under 29 minutes.  For the record, the youngest may have finished first but the oldest didn’t finish last!
