Our Jack wins Swindon's Remembrance race
AWP's Foundation Trust membership administrator Jack
Bancroft was first to cross the finish line at the British Legion's
fundraising race 'Run2Remember' on Saturday 9 November.
Jack, who was one of the 1,000 participants, says: "We had
an AWP stand at the event to promote our services in Swindon. As I
do a lot of running I was encouraged by my colleagues to take part
in the race."
"I ran the 11km circuit around the park and it was a good event,
with good atmosphere despite it chucking it down with rain. Of
course there were lots of service personnel taking part too. I
really enjoyed it and would definitely do it again."
This is the second year the event has taken place. Held on the
day before Remembrance Sunday, the event aims to raise funds to
support the British Legion's work with injured service men and
women, and is an opportunity to show support to the Armed Forces
community and remember those who have lost their life.
Well done Jack!
