A SENSE of achievement for local ‘Property Plodders’


Six of Birmingham’s most active property professionals have come together to take part in this month’s Flora London Marathon 2009 to raise awareness and sponsorship for the work of deafblind and rubella charity Sense.
With a shared passion for fitness this is not the first time the team, comprising Richard Meering of M3, Mike Trainer of Wragge & Co, Alan Sarjant of Prologis, Andrew Spittle of Pace Property, Jonathan Cox of Oswin Developments and Tim Andrews of Hollywood Signs and Monster Digital, have got together to run and raise money for the charity.

Otherwise know as the ‘Property Plodders’, this year the team is appealing for support in the hope to raise over £10,000, in a race that will also mark a special personal achievement for a couple of the team members. It marks Alan and Tim’s fifth and final race of the ‘world major series’, which also included four other marathons across the world in Chicago, New York, Berlin and Boston, all of which the runners have taken part in over the last five years.

Tim Andrews, Managing Director of Hollywood Signs and Monster Digital, said: “We are urging our friends, colleagues and members of the public to help us raise over £10,000, which in this current climate may be as challenging as the race itself! Despite the obvious downturn, we are hopeful that support for the team and the charity will remain high and we can continue to make a worthy contribution for this fantastic charity.
“We’ve been in training since November and as we’re based all over the Midlands, we’ve met up and used a variety of training grounds  – from Dorridge and Solihull to as far as the Cotswolds and even along the river Thames when we’ve been on business in the city.”

Alan Sarjant, Senior Vice President at ProIogis, added: “In these tough economic times we believe it’s become even more imperative that excellent charities like Sense are not forgotten.  We are confident that supporters in the region will dig deep to support us and the sufferers and families of those that are deafblind.”

Sense is a national organisation that supports and campaigns for children and adults who are deafblind.  The charity provides specialist information, advice and services to deafblind people, their families, carers and the professionals who work with them.
