The Maria Hanson Foundation – Melbourne Based Charity

This year’s chosen charity for Melbourne is The Maria Hanson Foundation. The team at Melbourne will continue to support other charity causes but their main focus will be helping raise awareness and raise funds for The Maria Hanson Foundation.

The charity helps those with life-limiting illnesses and conditions to spend time with their loved ones, creating special moments, experiences and memories by arranging holidays that are paid for at the Mablethorpe seaside.

Supporting local charities in Melbourne

Director Paul Stubbs is a keen runner and it seems every other weekend he is taking part in some sort of running event.

In July, he has two organised running events coming up in Derbyshire. The money raised on the day is donated to local charities.

Colin Potter Memorial 10k

On the 1st July, Paul will be putting on his running shoes for the Colin Potter Memorial 10k. Sadly, Colin Potter passed away in 2006 with an aggressive cancer. This 10k is held in annually in the memory of Colin, who was very much a family man with a  great rapport with colleagues at Rolls-Royce in Derby. Money raised on the day is shared between local charities. In 2013 over £1000 was raised and shared between Rainbows, Nightingale Macmillan Continuing Care Unit, Winston’s Wish and Treetops hospice.

Tara Kinder 10k

Later on in July, Paul will be getting out those running shoes again for the Tara Kinder 10k. Contestants can either walk or run 10k through the ground of Elvaston Castle and the money raised on the day will be donated to Rainbows. Last year, an astonishing £3000 was donated to Rainbows and the organisers hope that the previous record set will be beaten.
