Top 50 Indie Sewell on the go has donated thousands of pounds worth of bottled water to ensure runners remain hydrated during the Humber Bridge Half Marathon.
There was a record turn-out for the race in 2015, with more than 2,100 runners who raised £38,000 for charities, and Sewell on the go is helping to quench runners’ thirst for the third consecutive year, making 7,000 bottles of water available to the runners on Sunday, June 26.
The total value of the donation over the three-year period is about £15,000, cementing the business’s community support and ‘giving back’ ethos.
The Humber Bridge Half Marathon is organised by the Rotary Clubs of Hull and Barton, with support from the Hull and East Yorkshire (HEY) Smile Foundation and main sponsor Hudgell Solicitors.
Patrick Sewell, managing director of Sewell on the go, said: “Our support for the Humber Bridge Half Marathon is linked to the fact we are a main supporter of the HEY Smile Foundation and I am a trustee of the charity, therefore we want to help them support a local event which focuses on health and wellbeing.
“The half marathon is one of the largest events in the local calendar and it seems a natural fit as the largest local 24-hour forecourt operator in the region to support an event with water.
“We hope it’s a wonderful success once again and everyone has a safe and enjoyable race.”
Sewell on the go operates 12 fuel and convenience stores across Hull and the East Riding.
