Charity Events

Our staff have been very busy these past few months helping raising money for charity.  One weekend at the beginning of September saw a number of staff take part in two seperate events for charity.  Ladies from our Blackpool office took part in the Illumathon on Blackpool’s famous promenade to help raise money for Trinity Palliative Care Services and other employees took part in the Translake Challenge for the British Heart Foundation, both events helped raise over £2000 for charity.

The Blackpool Illumathon is a half marathon walk through Blackpool’s World Famous Illuminations and back.  The Translake Challenge is a 37 mile journey through the heart of the Lake District and ‘Team Parkinson’ won the race with an impressive finishing time of 4 hours and 10 minutes a whopping 18 minutes ahead of second place.  This event alone helped raise over £1600 for the British Heart Foundation thanks to the sponsorship of the 17 companies involved.

Parkinson’s have also took part in many other events raising money; the Moonlight Walk for St Catherine’s Hospice, our Construction Director Andy Smith took part in a 5km run around Preston Docks and Accounts Assistant Emma Brown took part in the Race for Life for Cancer Research UK.
