A team of PTS employees pulled on their running shoes to compete in the Great South Run on 24th October in Portsmouth, raising around £700 for Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

Passing the finish line after a tough ten miles were PTS Haslemere Branch Manager Andrew Marchant and PTS Camberly Assistant Branch Manager Matthew Armstrong-Forbes. Both runners had been training hard for months before the challenge, raising money through the support of friends, family and PTS customers and suppliers.

Andy Marchant, Branch Manager at PTS Haslemere, said: "This was the first sponsored run I had ever done so it was a real challenge, but our team wanted to support the great work of the CF Trust. I am now preparing for the London Marathon in April 2011 and I hope we can rely on the same support from everyone that helped us to raise such a massive amount of money this time around."

Keen runner and PTS Sales Representative for Leicestershire Duncan Foley also represented the North of England when he took on the Great North Run on Sunday 19th September in Newcastle, Gateshead. Duncan will be joining Andy in support of the CF Trust at the 2011 London Marathon. The CF Trust is the UK's only national charity dedicated to all aspects of Cystic Fibrosis.
