Basic CMYKOn Sunday, the intrepid team of 25 CLS employees came together to run the Vitality British 10K London Run in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital.

The weather did not rain on the CLS parade and despite a few aches, pains and knee complaints all 25 elated runners crossed the finish line. Not only did everyone do sub 1hr 30 mins, but our fastest time was Jean-Claude with an impressive 45 mins!

The motivation to cross the line, came in an effort to raise funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital; a charity favoured by the team for their efforts to provide vital up-to-date equipment and fund research into better treatments for children.

So far the team have raised just over £30,000. The team would like to thank everyone who supported and sponsored them for this vital cause. Any supporters who haven’t had an opportunity to sponsor the team already are invited and encouraged to do so at https://www.justgiving.com/CLS10k/.

Published on 13 October 2017, the Parental Bereavement (Pay and Leave) Bill would provide for the first time a legal right to parents who are employed and have suffered the death of a child, a minimum of two weeks’ leave in which to grieve.
