Lucy Raises Money in Charity Run

Lucy Ainsley is the latest UKCS colleague to participate in fundraising for a good cause.

Lucy recently took part in the Great East Run, a half-marathon located in nearby Ipswich.

She finished in an impressive 2 hours and 48 minutes, raising a total of £450 to help those with multiple hereditary exostoses (HME).  This cause is close to home for Lucy as she has three sons affected by the condition.  HME results in the growth of benign tumours on the bones of the sufferer.  This rare genetic bone condition affects 1 in 50,000 people, causing significant pain and difficulty when performing simple tasks such as walking or sitting.

UKCS has continued it’s support for Lucy’s family, and all those affected, by donating £100 to this particular effort.  You can read more via this earlier post: http://www.ukcustomssolutions.co.uk/2017/10/24/ukcs-charity-year-brew-blake/
