HERTS 10K founder Lawrence Levy has been honoured with the prestigious President’s accolade in the annual St Albans and District Chamber of Commerce Community Awards.

Lawrence was recognised by President Graham Lane for his hard work and dedication in the creation of an annual event which to date has raised over �500,000 and is the single largest fundraising event for Grove House Hospice.

The money raised from the race enabled Grove House to bring forward their plans to launch their Hospice at Home Service.

Lawrence said: “I am really honoured to have been awarded the Chamber of Commerce President’s Award and I am determined to make the Herts 10K better each year to ensure that Grove House Hospice has a sustainable event that will continue to provide much-needed income for many years to come.”
