A team of ABP employees from King’s Lynn and Ipswich pulled on their trainers to raise money for the Norfolk Hospice charity by taking part in the Grand East Anglia Run.

ABP’s East Anglia ports handle more than 2m tonnes of agribulks and commodities annually, including grain. Although the Port of Ipswich is the UK’s leading export port for agricultural products, the port at King’s Lynn is important to the economy in the north of the region.

ABP has taken part in the run since 2013. Previous years have seen ABP running teams raise funds for Rudham Ward, the Childrens Ward at the local Queen Elizabeth Hospital, and East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

ABP laboratory and silo operative Georgia Freeman joining the firm’s running team for the first time this year. She said: “The fact that so many of us care about and engage with the local community is one of the reasons that make ABP a great place to work.”

The GEAR 10K was organised by the not-for-profit company Run For All, which organises a number of 10K runs across the UK. Norfolk Hopsice, which relies on local people for support, offers care and advice to patients with life-shortening illnesses.
