Employees at leading garage door manufacturer Garador are establishing a strong reputation for their charitable activities.

The latest effort to help others is from Garador’s shop floor worker Nick Boon, who started the year training hard for a local half marathon race.

He has now just completed the 13 mile race in 1 hour 47 minutes, raising £285 for the local Yeovil Hospital Charity.

“It was a great effort as it was a challenging route, going out into the country before returning to the hilly centre of Yeovil town,” said Garador’s Managing Director Jon Watson. “All the money raised goes to help the local hospital buy essential equipment, a very worthwhile cause.”
