Thank you to forty staff members from Eaton Aerospace who completed the Great South Run for Rainbow and the British Heart Foundation.

Last year a 12-strong team from the company in Abbey Park ran the route with teams coming first and second in the Great South Run’s business challenge, beating other technology leaders.
This year the 40 workers hoped to beat their times and raise at least £2,000 for the two charities.

Tracy Graham, HR Project Analyst and organiser of the group’s event, said the business encouraged people to run the race and raise cash as part of a corporate initiative. She added: “There are 780 people on site at Titchfield, so it’s five per cent of our workforce running from all different areas, including those in the operational side and offices. “It’s a good chance for everyone to get together, get fit and raise money for the charities. “We’ve been to The Rainbow Centre and it’s such a worthwhile charity.” She said they hoped to raise as much as possible to aid the centre’s Christmas Party for the children with cerebral palsy. The British Heart Foundation was also chosen because one of the runners, Brian Wilkes, has a pacemaker and each year tries to raise cash for the cause.
