Prometheus team complete Hereford City 10km Run

On Sunday 1st November a few individuals from the Prometheus team participated in the Hereford City 10K run in aid of Mercia Accident Rescue Service (MARS).

Mercia Accident Rescue Service (MARS) is a local emergency medical charity (reg. 515343) consisting of doctors, a paramedic and a nurse, who volunteer their time and resources free of charge to provide immediate medical care for the critically ill and injured in Herefordshire and Worcestershire, in support of West Midlands Ambulance Service. Last year alone they attended nearly 200 incidents across the two counties. Prometheus considers MARS to be the most valuable of our local charities, providing life-saving care at the roadside and fully deserving of support from the community it helps.

In total the team managed to raise £1497.50. Dr Malcolm Russell MBE, who is a Registered Medical Practitioner for MARS, quoted “Every penny counts and it was a tremendous effort overall.  A fantastic amount of money raised which will help us to continue supporting our local community.”

Prometheus would like to thank all of the participants, all the companies and individuals who sponsored us and all the family and friends who came to support us on the day.
