British Lung Foundation Lung Run

Luxfer Gas Cylinders was once again one of the main sponsors of the British Lung Foundation’s Annual Lung Run held on April 24 in Sutton Park, Birmingham.

Now in its 12th year, the event attracts thousands of runners from across the UK, including employees from Luxfer Europe who were once again part of the line-up together with Breathe Easy Group, members and friends of the Foundation’s patient support network.

The British Lung Foundation is a lifeline for many of the eight million people living with lung disease throughout the UK.

Luxfer’s 10K teams performed exceptionally well, winning second and third places in the Challenge Team category out of a total of 38 teams.

Richard Trapeau from the company’s French manufacturing facility finished the 10K race in an outstanding time of 37 minutes and 17 seconds, with teammate Clive Greyson from Nottingham following closely behind in 37 minutes 22 seconds.

Veronique McKellican, Luxfer’s European marketing director, said: “As one of the event’s main sponsors, we are extremely proud to be associated with such a deserving and hard-working charity. Major events like the BLF Lung Run provide much-needed funds for on-going research.”
