Fundraisers from our Midlands region were crowned charity champions in their gladiatorial efforts to boost coffers to help sick children.
Answering the battle cry from national charity Dreamflight to help youngsters’ dreams come true were epic fundraisers from our Peterborough office: Mark Bond, Alex Clark, Elgan Daniel and Gary Martin.
Competing in Dreamflight’s Great Escape race, the team collected more than £2,500 after a day of more than 40 challenges over a 200-mile round trip to Bedfordshire, Leicestershire and Nottingham.
Their efforts were rewarded at the charity’s fundraising dinner and presentation ceremony at Bedford Golf Club where they received trophies for Overall Winners and for Most Money Raised Overall.
Head of technical Gary Martin said: “Once a year, the charity takes 192 deserving children with a serious illness or disability from all over the UK to Florida to spend 10 magical days of fun and excitement.
“It was an amazing event for us to be involved with and we are delighted that our contribution will make such a difference.”
