The time has finally come… the announcement of the winner of the most prestigious sporting trophy around; The Captain Manchester Cool Runnings Award.

We had some great businesses taking part, and before we announce the winner we’d like to thank Metronet UK, Express Solicitors, Harrington Brooks and Autotrader UK for taking part and helping us to raise over £15,000 – that’s over £5,000 more than we raised last year!

The competition was fierce and soon became a two course race between Express Solicitors and Autotrader UK. Since both businesses raised over £10,000 between them staff here at Forever Manchester wanted to reward both teams with an award. Both of these companies made a great effort to hit their target, and helped us to smash the figure our fundraisers doing the 10k last year raised.

The final totals were:

  • Express £3607.64
  • Autotrader £6958.34

Both of these companies will now be visited by the Captain himself, who will present each team with their award, so stay tuned on our website, as in the next couple of weeks we’ll post some stories and footage of our Captain at both Express Solicitors and Autotrader. He’s already looking forward to visiting!

Huge congratulations to all of the businesses who took part in the race for the award, as well as all of our individual finishers.

We’re already looking forward to next year, where the award will hopefully get bigger and better!
