Five ladies from Edmonds and Slatter opticians took part in the Sport Relief Mile at Leicester racecourse on Sunday 25th of March. It was wonderfully sunny and they couldn’t have wished for better weather.
Jo Benfield, Amy Coleburne, Natasha Cornish, Clare Dorman and Linda Poultney proved they were really good ‘sports’ by completing their run dressed as outstanding athletes the ‘118’ guys complete with moustaches!! No to make things any easier on themselves they also opted for the 3 mile distance, which on the day turned out to be 3 laps totalling 3.6 miles due to the nature of the course. So they all nearly went the extra, extra mile!!
With signs printed on their backs reading “Moustaches? No, we sell glasses!” causing a few laughs as they went the ladies managed to raise over £350 between them.
