Six novice runners from The Boss Partnership managed to raise £5,500 in sponsorship when they took part in the Birmingham 10k in April.

Two weeks later staff at the Greenhough Road firm held a charity golf day at Moor Hall Hotel in Sutton Coldfield and raised the same amount again.

Practice director Logan Khan said: “I’m really proud of the team for their fundraising efforts this year.

“None of us had ever run before so 10k wasn’t as easy as it might sound.”

The golf day was attended by former Scotland and Norwich goalkeeper, Bryan Gunn, along with golfer Sam Haywood, caddy to 2016 Masters Champion Danny Willett.

“I’d like to thank them both for attending and helping us double our fundraising total,” said Mr Kahn. “St Giles is an amazing local charity which offers many more services than people realise – and it’s right on our doorstep.

“We’re thrilled to have been able to raise so much for their vital work.”

St Giles supports over 7,000 people across four centres every year who are facing the challenge of a potentially terminal illness.

The charity’s chief executive Emma Hodges, said: “We’d like to thank everyone at The Boss Partnership for their support.

“Many people still think of a hospice as a place to go and die but we offer much more than that. Continued support from dedicated volunteer fundraisers means we can help even more people right from the point of diagnosis – not just at the end.”
