Andrew Smith, Business Director Liquid Packaging & Healthcare, and an active member and volunteer of Thetford parkrun, presented a £250 donation from Camvac’s Dress Down Friday fund at their weekly run on Saturday 4th August. The donation will help towards fundraising efforts to set up a junior parkrun in Thetford. Thetford parkrun has been instrumental in helping people have a weekly routine for exercise regardless of their running ability, and the encouragement and support has a profound effect on people’s physical and mental wellbeing. Extending this to a specific event for juniors will help young people have a weekly social event where participation in a physical activity forms part of a healthy lifestyle and also provides a platform to improve collectively and individually by supporting and encouraging each other.
