An intrepid team from Precision Pneumatics successfully completed the annual Colour Rush at Aintree Racecourse on Saturday, raising hundreds of pounds for Cancer Research UK in the process.
Julie Prescott, Oby Umeh, Hayley Stanton, Lyndsey Beckett, Nikki McCulloch, Gemma Weston, Karen Drewry and Maddi Redmond all made it safely round the five kilometre obstacle course, although there were a few bumps and scrapes along the way!
Buoyed by the incredibly generous support of friends, family, suppliers and colleagues, the team climbed over, under and through various inflatables and colour stations. They emerged tired, covered in paint, but having raised £875 for Cancer Research UK. That total will be boosted further by Gift Aid, meaning that around £1,000 will be donated to researching cures for cancers of all kinds.
After completing the run, Director Julie Prescott commented: “It has been a great day. The girls were all brilliant and we had a lot of fun as we made our way around the course. We would like to say a huge, heartfelt ‘thank you’ to everyone who has sponsored us. The amount of support we have received has been overwhelming and we are so grateful to everyone for their generosity.”
The Colour Rush is the second fundraising event Precision Pneumatics has run in aid of Cancer Research UK; an internal World Cup Sweepstake having already taken place. Because #PrecisionSupports Cancer Research UK as it’s official charity, at least one further event is planned. Mrs Prescott added: “The women of the office have blazed a trail and really pushed themselves. We are working on something that will challenge our male colleagues, while still being very enjoyable.”
There is still time for anyone who would like to show their support for the cause to do so; the company’s Colour Rush Donations Page remains open. #PrecisionSupports Cancer Research UK, whilst simultaneously supporting our customers with their compressed air and pneumatic requirements.
