Pan Pacific are taking on the Focus 10K

04 May 2022

An incredible 31 members of staff at a luxury London hotel are taking part in May's Focus 10K for Chailey Heritage Foundation.

Lorraine Sinclair - Executive Chef at Pan Pacific London - is spearheading the hotel's support. Lorraine has a deep personal interest in the charity, and is urging others to take part in the 10K, 5K or Mini Mile event at Vuggles Farm on the Sutton Hall Estate near Newick.

She said: "I have a keen interest in Chailey Heritage because a member of a close friend's family, Archie, attends school there. "He suffers from Pompe disease - an inherited disorder - and Chailey Heritage has helped him and his family so much with the care, teaching and support they have given him. "The difference they have made to his and his family's life is unbelievable. "I just felt that a charity like this, which does so much for each individual child who goes there, is amazing because that is what the kids are - they are individuals and are all treated as such. "If we as a hotel can give a little something to brighten their day, then it means the world to us."

Fundraising Manager, Will Folkes, said: "We are so excited about the Focus 10K this year. We have an amazing new venue, and, thanks to the generosity of the owners, it will be the first time anyone has had a chance to run on this private estate.” "Please sign up. It’s going to be such a great day in an amazing setting in the middle of the Sussex countryside. "We welcome all runners - serious ones but also those who fancy running 10k (six miles), or 5k (three miles) under absolutely no pressure at all, just for enjoyment.

"There is also a mini-mile for our younger entrants and lots of delicious food and entertainment in the race village, so it really is a fun day out for all the family. "And of course, thanks to our amazing headline sponsor, Focus Group, all the money raised will go to a wonderful cause, looking after the children and young people at Chailey Heritage, who all have complex disabilities and health needs. "We are very grateful to Lorraine and the team at Pan Pacific. Now we would like others to sign up as well."
