Solicitor at law firm, KBL Solicitors completes the Great Manchester 10k Run raising over £750 for the Octagon Theatre, Bolton.
Stephen McArdle, who completed the run in just over 48 minutes, was one of 40,000 that took to the streets of Manchester recently to complete the Great Manchester 10k Run. The run which is one of the world’s fastest growing running events spans 6 miles around Manchester, starting and finishing in the city centre.
Stephen said “This year marks the theatre’s 50th Anniversary, and it’s great to see it going from strength to strength producing such high quality work. Many people are not aware that the Octagon is a registered charity and relies on financial support to continue its rich programme of work, which includes offering life changing opportunities to people of all ages and backgrounds.
Their work within the community ranges from youth theatre for 5 – 25 years olds, to their Bridges group for children and young people with learning difficulties to art-beat for the over 50s – it really is theatre for all. It is an exciting time for the theatre, and for Bolton, with plans in place to embark upon a major redevelopment of the building over the next few years. I am delighted to have taken part in the 10k in aid of the theatre’s charitable work at such a key time and contributing to their overall fundraising efforts.”
