Birmingham Midshires managing director Ian Kerr has raised over £1,250 for a local children's hospice by running in this year's Wolverhampton half-marathon.
Kerr raised the money for Acorns children's hospice.
The donation was raised through sponsorship from colleagues at Midshires, friends and business partners.
Acorns provides a comprehensive range of care and support facilities for all life-limited children and their families within the West Midlands Regional Health Authority area free of charge.
Kerr says: “Having visited one of the hospices and met some of the staff and patients, I am convinced they are providing an essential service which goes unnoticed unless you happen to be one of the families who are unfortunately impacted. Hopefully, my small contribution will help make life a little more rewarding.”
Acorns corporate manager Rob Tovey says: “We are delighted that Ian thought of Acorns and the money raised will help make Christmas better for the children.”
