Beccy supporting our chosen charity… by running a marathon in Amsterdam!

Beccy Kedward, our Business Manager, is off across to Europe this weekend, but not for a relaxing break or a spot of Autumn sun!

Beccy is heading over to Amsterdam, in the company of her sister and one of her friends, to take part in the Amsterdam marathon! Along with thousands of other runners, Beccy will be pounding the pavements of the Dutch capital to raise money for our chosen charity for this year: Children’s Hospice South West.

In preparation for the 26 mile ‘experience’, Beccy and her compatriots have already completed the Bristol and Glasgow half marathons, but this will be her first ever full marathon run, along a course that skirts the city’s famous canals and finishes at the Olympic Stadium.

The money she raises will go to the hospice, who Brunel will also be supporting in other ways over the next 12 months or so. With several hospices throughout the South West, Children’s Hospice has the stated aim to ‘build precious memories for families whose children are living with life-limiting or life threatening conditions’, which we’re sure you’ll all agree makes them a very worthy cause.

If you feel able to donate to Beccy’s fundraising efforts then the easiest way to do so is at her Just Giving page, or you can contact her at or on the office number: 0117 214 0870.

Everyone at Brunel wishes Beccy the best of luck for Sunday’s run!
