Jeff Brown's Big Run

by Administrator | post a comment

Premier Range are backing the Jane Tomlinson Appeal in 2013 with the help of Burnley Football Club matchday compere Jeff Brown.

The Jane Tomlinson ‘Run For All’ Pennine Lancashire 10k run comes to Burnley for the first time in June 2013.

And club sponsors Premier Range have laid down the gauntlet to out-of-shape Jeff by offering a whopping £10,000 to the appeal if he completes the run!

Premier Range General Manger Martin Mensforth said: “We had a little banter at a recent game and as a result, we have thrown down a challenge to Jeff to get fit and join in.

“We have committed to donating a pound for every metre Jeff runs - so 10,000 metres equals £10,000 pounds!

“As the race is coming to Burnley for the first time it seemed too good an opportunity to miss!

“Like most other people in the UK, our staff at Premier Range have all been touched by the spectre of cancer at some point in their lives, and are so happy to be able to make a contribution towards raising awareness of this awful disease by raising funds for Jane’s fantastic appeal.”

However, unlike Jeff, Premier Range are not happy to stop at £10,000!

As the main sponsors at Burnley Football Club, the kitchen equipment specialists want to engage the club and their fans in helping to push Jeff’s sponsorship to an even higher sum.

Burnley Football Club is therefore supporting the Jane Tomlinson Appeal by inviting fans to support Jeff through a special ‘Just Giving’ page.

The club will also chronicle Jeff’s training through their Clarets Player channel and give fans unparalleled access to his gruelling training regime ahead of the 10k run.

Premier Range would like to thank Jeff Brown, The Jane Tomlinson Appeal and Burnley FC for giving us the opportunity to help.
