We recently took part in the Inflatable 5k Run on Saturday 1 April at the Showground in Peterborough. With some sponsorship still to come in we are proud to say that we have rasied over £2100 for local charity Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice.
The event involved a 5km course with 10 huge inflatable obstacles to negotiate and a team of 20 of us took part. It wasn’t an easy challenge but everyone enjoyed it and had a lot of fun.
We chose to support Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice as we wanted to raise money for a Peterborough-based charity and Thorpe Hall is a place close to many of our hearts. We are so pleased we managed to raise such a lot to help the hospice continue its amazing work.
Nilesh Patel, Hospice Fundraiser, said: “We were delighted to welcome the team from XL Displays to Team Incredible for this event which looked pretty gruelling but a lot of fun! We're so grateful to the whole team for getting behind their work place initiative to support us.
The amount raised could pay for two syringe drivers to give constant relief for patients or a hospice nurse for 20 days.”
