PROUD SPONSOR OF INDUSTRY NEWS INDUSTRYNEWS RYAN PUTS HIS BEST FOOT FORWARD FOR CANCER SUPPORT CHARITY » » EMPLAS, MANAGING Director, Ryan Johnson is taking on the Great North Run for cancer support charity, Macmillan. The largest half marathon in the world, the Great North run, covers a tough 13.1 miles from Newcastle to South Shields. Ryan is running for Macmillan in memory of his late Nan, Jean Handy, who received support and palliative care from Macmillan nurses and the Cynthia Spencer Hospice in Kettering. Ryan said: “My Nan, Jean, was loved by everyone who knew her and she’s missed by all of her family and friends. Saying goodbye was very difficult for everyone. “We were able to draw some comfort from the exceptional care that she received during Jean’s final days from the Cynthia Spencer Hospice, Age UK and the Macmillan nurses, who cared for her, allowing Jean to pass away in comfort and with dignity in her own home. “This wouldn’t have been possible without the support of Macmillan, which is why I’m doing the run and asking anyone who can, to donate to my justgiving page. It doesn’t matter how much or how little. Every penny counts.” https://www. fundraising/ryan-johnson12 A WHOPPING CHARITY POT RAISED AT GOLF TOURNAMENT The Leslie Easton and Annis Building Contractors team: From left, Martyn Annis, Leslie Easton, Derek Pearce, Ben Hall » » WELLINGBOROUGH GOLF COUSE played host yet again this year to the 12th Glazerite Trophy on 6th and 7th July.
