BANK STAFF STEP OUT FOR MEMORIAL RUN; Businesses POST THRIVE supporting the PEOPLE CONTACT JON GRIFFIN AT JON.GRIFFIN@TRINITYMIRROR.COM COMMUNITY.



A GROUP of corporate financiers who swapped their calculators for running shoes in memory of a former colleague have helped raise over PS12,000 for a Birmingham hospital.

The half-marathon event, which was organised by Ian Tetsill from Barclays, started at Barclays regional headquarters in Snow Hill and finished at Molineux, home of Wolves.

David Burrows, former head of Barclays Acquisition Finance team, died following a road traffic accident in 2003. David, who lived with his wife Marian and daughters Kate and Rachel, came from Solihull but was originally from the Black Country and was an avid Wolves supporter.

The event was supported by former Wolves striker Steve Bull, one of David's heroes.

Ian Tetsill said: "We wanted to organise an event to mark this milestone anniversary of David's passing in a positive way. He was a great colleague and friend and we thought it fitting to organise an event which would help to mark the 10-year anniversary of his passing and raise funds for the Teenage Cancer Unit at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital - a charity that was close to David's heart. We are delighted by the support given from the Birmingham professional services community."
