Faccenda Foods donates Fun Run money to local Brackley school

July 9th, 2014

Brackley UK – Faccenda Foods, one of the UK’s leading food companies, has raised £500 for local school Magdalen College. The money, which was raised at a barbeque organised by Faccenda at the Brackley 10km Chicken Run will go towards supporting student involvement in sporting events in the county. Ian Colling, Head teacher of Magdalen College School, said:
“We are very grateful to Faccenda for their generous donation. We have been working hard to engage greater numbers of students in sporting activities at Magdalen and are proud of their achievements. The money will go to supporting these activities. We believe it to be really important that young people engage in sport and physical activity from a young age to establish healthy lifestyles which then become a part of their daily lives.”
Faccenda Foods was also sponsor of the race, organised annually by Brackley running club and two of its teams scored successes: Faccenda Foods’ Telford and Brackley teams finished first and second respectively, in the non-running club category, out of 218 runners. Commenting on the Brackley Chicken Run, Robert Jennings, Factory General Manager at Faccenda Food Brackley commented,
It’s great to have an opportunity to support and take part in local events like the Brackley Chicken Run, particularly when a number of our people are actively involved in the running club. Clearly health and sports activity are a key theme in the event, so to be able to make a donation to the local school as a result of our involvement is an added bonus.”
