Henry Green, managing director of Covers Timber and Builders Merchant, is sponsoring the Chichester Half Marathon – and is already in training to run it himself.

The Chi Half – on Sunday, October 14 – is a challenging but beautiful 13-mile race through Chichester city centre and the South Downs that aims to raise vital funds for Children on the Edge, a Chichester-based international children’s charity.

Henry said: “This is a great local event, and I am proud to be sponsoring Children on the Edge, as well as running in the event itself.”

COTE spokeswoman Esther Smitheram said: “By paying an entry fee and running the Chi half you will already be helping Children on the Edge where a little really can go a long way in the places where they work. Just £5 can provide a hot lunch for ten children for one week in their Learning Centres in Bangladesh.

“The marathon will be a fantastic way to raise funds to continue this and many other vital projects.

“Covers joins other local firms supporting the Chichester Half Marathon: Montezuma’s, Store Property, Fitness First, Henry Adams, Evans Weir and Carte Blanche.”
