HT VestMulti-disciplined Building Services Engineers, Avoca Consulting Engineers are keen supporters of local Heel & Toe Children’s Charity - raising money in various ways and are now delighted to be the main sponsor of the charity’s running vest for the 2015 Great North Run.

Heel & Toe Charity - a local charity provides therapy to children with Cerebral Palsy and other physical disabilities across the North East and runs entirely on charitable donations.

The charity confirms they have an impressive 170 runners participating in this years’ half marathon and all have been issued with their brightly coloured sponsored vests, sponsored by Avoca.  As a thank you to the runners Heel & Toe will be hosting a private party afterwards, providing a celebratory free buffet , as well as qualified therapists on hand in the Charity Village to alleviate any running aches and pains after the event.

Avoca’s Managing Director, Mark Hooper has fundraised for the charity with a daredevil SkyDive and Wing Walk and is now thrilled to be a Trustee;  responsible for governance, guidance and planning of the charity.  Mark said; “It is a real privilege to be part of such a fantastic local charity. Having seen first-hand, I know the money raised really makes a difference to the children’s lives, enabling them to be more independent and providing support for the parents.”

“The running vests are a great way to promote Heel & Toe and the runners who are fundraising for them. I am also taking part in the Great North Run this year and  I will wear my vest with great pride and lookout for runners sharing the experience”.
