James Clark, managing director of PHS Direct, said:

“During our 50th anniversary year we decided to give something back to important community organisations. The money we raised from our run will go towards providing specialist equipment, care and support for children with life limiting illnesses and their families. PHS Direct also backs the National Forest, an environmental project designed to transform 200 square miles in the centre of England. We make a donation for every box of paper we sell, and have planted a woodland of around 20,000 trees.”
