Milsted Langdon LLP run the Bristol 10k on behalf of ARBAN UK


Chartered Accountants Milsted Langdon LLP is aiming to mark its quarter-century by raising £25,000 for charity through a wide range of events during 2013.  ARBAN UK has been lucky enough to benefit from this philanthropic decision as, following nominations from their team members, they chose to run the Bristol 10k on behalf of ARBAN UK.  There were seven team members running on 5th May.  Of the seven, only three had ever run this distance before and most said they couldn’t run around the block prior to starting their training.  Following top quality comaraderie and banter during their training, they did really well with all seven completing the course and with very good times (from 43 minutes to 1 hour 10 minutes).  After completing the run one of the team members said “I think we all enjoyed it and it helped me keep going knowing we were raising money for such a good cause, but I’m not sure anyone’s lining up for the half marathon just yet!”

If you, your work colleagues, or your friends would like to help us raise funds to keep our clinic in Dhaka open, then please do make contact with us and we will do all we can to help you.

Olveston Fun Run

A GROUP of mothers in Olveston will be slipping on their running shoes next month in aid of Bangladeshi slum dwellers.

The athletic team of six have reinstated the defunct village school’s annual family Fun Run and rallied the support of sportsmen and women, young and old, to help raise funds for the charity Arban UK.

The challenge, due to take place on Sunday, April 29, will consist of two races: a one-kilometre race around the school field for children and another for all ages covering five kilometres of footpaths and bridleways.

Congratulations to Esther, Matt, Julia, Nicky, Nora, Natasha and Nicola for completing the Tockington Triathlon. They were brilliant; swimming, biking then a muddy run at the end. Well done and thank you for all money raised for ARBAN.

Thank you also to Matthew, Amanda, Tom, Ben, Sally, Clare and Saffia for parking cars and marshalling in the rain. With car park donations and our marshalling contribution we raised £215 which makes it a great morning’s work.
