Team VH Roc up for 5k


A select team of Vickery Holman employees from across the south west took part in Truro’s annual 5km run supporting the charity Roc.  Roc provides support to people who have leaning or similar disabilities, assisting them to live full and varied lives; enabling them “to be who they want to be”.   Vickery Holman is honoured to again be one of its sponsors’ of this event.

A sell out event saw 500 participants congregating at a start line on Truro’s Lemon Quay under leaden skies. Fortunately by the time the race numbers had been pinned to our unmissable green t-shirts the sun had broken through.  The run included an initial charge around the Hall for Cornwall before runners found their pace on the road to Malpas Park and a lap around the cricket ground. 

The team comprising Stefan Parkins, Steven Maycock and Samantha Johnson commented, “As always the doubling back leg felt longer, but before long Lemon Quay was in sight.  Regardless of position, all participants were loudly cheered on by spectators as they crossed the line. The presentation of a complimentary pasty and bottle of local beer was greatly received at the finish line.”

The event was well organised and received by all who attended and Vickery Holman look forward to supporting the charity and sponsoring the event again next year.
