An eight-strong team from United Molasses Group will take part in this year’s London Marathon to raise vital funds for charity.
The runners are running in support of Starlight Children’s Foundation and hope to raise more than £20,000 through donations and corporate match-funding.
For over 30 years, Starlight has enabled children and families to find hope through the power of play after a child is diagnosed with a serious illness.
Last year, the charity reached 1.2 million children in almost 500 hospitals across the UK.
The UM team consists of CEO Ben Macer, Shaun Smith [Group Finance], Mark Few, Simon Markham and Emma Holding [all from Molasses GB], Nigel Jones [Head of Technical & Quality], Jamie Marshall [UM Terminals, Hull East] and UM customer Henry Eastick from Ragus, the sugars and syrups specialist.
