Cardiff 10Km Charity Run


The Team here at HSJ would like to congratulate and say a massive well done to Kim, Nick and Rachael for successfully completing the Cardiff 10k Run on Sunday September 11.  It was a fantastic event and they managed to raise an impressive amount of funds for a great cause.

As many are aware, HSJ Accountants love to support events outside of business such as local charities whenever they can.

This year, after training for the last few months, Kim Jackson, Nick Sakkas and Rachael Yelland took part in the Cardiff 10km Race which started and finished on Cardiff’s iconic King Edward VII Avenue at the heart of the city’s Civic Centre – City Hall.

The race was to support the local charity, ME Support in Glamorgan (MESIG) who provides support for people affected by ME -a debilitating condition that affects many people.

After a very successful race, they managed to raise the targeted £1000!

Kim and the team are not only delighted with the amount raised but also by achieving goals and breaking personal best targets they set themselves.

With over 3000 runners this year we are proud to say we did really well. Nick came in and finished at 0:56:20, followed by Kim who finished at 00:58:00 and Rachael who despite her pre training injuries pushed through with her “never give up spirit” and admirably finished the race at 1:18:52.

We would like to say thank you to MESIG and all its members including Christalla Davies, Membership Secretary, for supporting HSJ by attending and cheering for us. Also thank you to everyone who donated and supported this event it is much appreciated and made all our efforts worthwhile!

HSJ would also like to give a special mention and thank you to Ben Sakkas who was paparazzi for the day and for taking all the fantastic photos- which made Dad ‘Nick’ feel like a superstar!

All in all it was great fun and we look forward to any future fundraising events that will hopefully attract more people to support and perhaps get involved with. We will keep you posted for the next event!
