Rowberry Morris sponsors this year's Staines 10k!
This year's Staines 10k takes place on Sunday 13th May 2018. Rowberry Morris are once again proud to be sponsoring this event - and very pleased to announce that some of our team will be pulling on their running shoes to take part.
The Staines 10k is set to be the best yet!
This fast, flat, 10k is becoming a favourite in the running calendar, and the 2018 event is no exception - the race is now full!
Organised by Spelthorne Borough Council, Runymede Runners and Staines Strollers not only provides an opportunity for healthy competition, it also supports local charities, which benefit from the proceeds.

Anna Illingworth, Liam Connolly, Helen Greenwood, Nick Gething, Sarah Moon, Abi Kabutey and Sam Edginton are all running from Rowberry Morris, along with a few of their family and friends. As well as the physical challenge of running 10k, the group are hopingn to use this as an opportunity to raise money for a local Staines charity, Spelthorne Rentstart.
Spelthorne Rentstart is a charity established to assist single people and childless couples to access accommodation in the private rented sector. Since their beginnings in 1997, they have helped well over a thousand people in need.
Homeless is often associated with inner city areas, but it can be just as common in suburban areas like Spelthorne. Personal tragedy or a sudden change in circumstances like redundancy or family breakdown can strike anyone at any time. For people who fall outside the welfare safety net there is often nowhere else to turn. Spelthorne Restart works in the Spelthorne borough to help clients get a roof over their heads during these difficult times when they might otherwise find themselves homeless. The charity also tries to ensure tenants have the best chance of maintaining a trouble free tenancy by offering ongoing tenancy support services for the duration of the lease.
Based in Staines, Spelthorne Rentstart is run by a committed team of permanent and volunteer staff. The team build key relationships with local landlords, estate agents, Spelthorne Council, Citizens Advice Bureau, Housing Associations, Hostels and other charities to ensure the best possible outcome for their clients.
