OVER £1000 has been raised for a Beaconsfield charity after ten runners completed the British 10k London Run this month.

Many of the competitors work for the charity, with runners Neil Cooper and Owain Zerelli, completing the race in just under one and a half hours.

The money raised will benefit SignHealth, which focuses on improving the mental and physical health of deaf people and campaigning for improved access and communication within the healthcare setting.

Neil said: "We have both been training hard for the race and we are delighted we managed to finish it in under an hour."

"The atmosphere on the day was fantastic and we’re thrilled to have helped raise money for SignHealth."

The British 10k began at Piccadilly and finished at Whitehall. The route took runners past many landmarks, including Trafalgar Square, the London Eye and Westminster Abbey.

Steve Powell, chief executive, said: "It’s wonderful that ten people completed the British 10k for SignHealth especially in the heat. Lots of people turned up to support them too."
