Selina Bocskei managed to complete the 10 kilometre run in just 56 minutes, raising £350 for Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice in Keighley.

Speaking after the run, Selina said: “I am absolutely delighted to have raised so much money for this wonderful charity, a charity which is very close to my heart.”

“This was my first running event and I am over the moon that I finished it in less than an hour.”

The audit manager who joined the firm in 2011 had trained hard for the run and had colleagues pledge money to her chosen hospice charity, which provides support to local people with life-limiting conditions.

Susan Sedgwick, Managing Director at Watson Buckle, said: “The team and I at Watson Buckle would like to congratulate Selina on completing the run. We are all immensely proud of her and her fundraising efforts.”
