25/10/2017 - Coach firm gets runners to the start on time
Lucketts supporting the Great South Run
Charity runners made it to the start line of this year’s Great South Run with a little help from local coach firm, Lucketts Travel.
The Fareham company donated a coach to transport people from Havant Rugby Club to the event, which attracted 20,000 runners on Sunday (October 22).
It meant the 24-strong team of runners from the rugby club could relax on the way to the run and prepare themselves for the 10-mile challenge. The stress-free start paid off, with all 24 completing the run and raising thousands of pounds for Friends of Ocean Ward charity between them.
Managing director of Lucketts Travel Tony Lawman, who also took part in the event, said: “When we heard Havant Rugby Club was taking part for charity we wanted to do anything we could to support them. It was our pleasure to lay on one of our comfortable and modern coaches so runners could relax on the way to the run and concentrate on getting in the right mindset for the big day.”
