Cambridgeshire Company Raises Over £10,000 for Cancer Charities in Running Challenge


09 April 2024

St Neots, Cambridgeshire , 9th April, 2024. Employees at Pico Technology, a fast growing electronics company based in St Neots, have united in a remarkable running challenge to support three cancer charities. Over a 20-week period, they collectively covered more than 4,000 miles, with the company pledging £2.50 for every mile run by a Pico employee.

The total amount raised exceeded £10,000, which was generously distributed among Cancer Research UK, Prostate Cancer Research, and Melanoma Focus. The cause holds significant importance for many Pico employees, with cancer having touched their lives either directly or through friends and family.

James Niblock, Director of Business Development and the driving force behind the initiative, expressed his gratitude, stating, "This challenge was about us coming together as a team to fight cancer and make a real difference. I can't thank each and every one of the employees at Pico who took part in this challenge for every single mile they ran."

The collective effort culminated in an astonishing 4,175.5 miles covered, surpassing their initial goal and raising a grand total of £10,438.75. The team's sense of achievement and pride is palpable.

This event marks the beginning of a series of collaborative employee initiatives aimed at charitable causes, as announced by Pico. To learn more about the company, visit, and to explore career opportunities, visit
