LV= sponsors Brentwood Half Marathon 2012

Press release: 29/07/2011

LV= today announced it is to sponsor the 2012 Brentwood Half Marathon and Fun Run. LV= employs over 200 people in its Brentwood office and the race will now be known as the LV= Brentwood Half Marathon and Fun Run.

The race has raised over £1million for the Brentwood à Becket Rotary Club over the years, which distributes these funds to worthy causes in the local area, across the UK and overseas. The majority of runners taking part also raise money for other causes and have raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for charity since the race begun in 1980.

Graham Carter, race director at the Brentwood à Becket Rotary Club, said: "The Rotary Club has organised the marathon for over thirty years and it has been very successful in bringing the community together to raise funds for charity. The event would not be possible without the support of local businesses and we are very pleased to have LV= on board as our new sponsor for the 2012 race."

Phil Bunker, managing director of LV= broker, said: "As one of the largest employers in the Brentwood area, this is an excellent opportunity for LV= to show its support for the local community and to raise funds for charity. The Brentwood Half Marathon and Fun Run is a great event and we are delighted to be involved this year."
