Hollywood in running to raise a monstrous amount

21.03.14

HM - Knowle Fun Run 2

A team of athletes from a leading digital print and sign company are in the running to raise a monstrous amount of money for charity.

Twelve colleagues at Birmingham-based Hollywood Monster, including managing director Tim Andrews, are training hard in preparation for the five-mile Knowle Fun Run, which the company is supporting for the fifth consecutive year.

The event, which takes place on Sunday, May 18th, will see hundreds of runners from Solihull and the surrounding areas come together to raise money for local good causes.

This year the fun run will be raising money for The Brain Tumour Charity, Northleigh House for bullied children and Vision Care for the homeless. Also, 30% of all the money raised will be donated to help local causes. Comedian and entertainer Don Maclean will be kicking off the event and awarding trophies and prizes throughout the day.

Hollywood Monster, based in Tyseley, will be sponsoring all the runners’ numbers and producing all the signage promoting the event, with signs on around 130 lampposts.

Tim, who lives in Dorridge, said: “Hollywood Monster is well known for its support for a range of charities and our staff join in enthusiastically whenever possible. The Knowle Fun Run is a great opportunity for us all to use it as motivation to get fit for the summer while raising money for a great cause.

“As a Dorridge resident myself, I’m always looking for ways to get involved in the local community. Our ‘Team Hollywood’ runners will be there on the day accompanied by the Hollywood Monster mascot and we’re hoping to raise thousands of pounds to help those most in need.”

Tim, supported by friends and colleagues, has helped to raise hundreds of thousands of pounds for various charities in recent years by running in marathons, cycling huge distances and organising fundraising events.
