Deco-Pak has raised over £1000 for a hospice close to its heart.
The staff of Hipperholme based decorative aggregates and bird box suppliers, Deco–Pak, joined over 1,600 runners in a 5k colour run to raise money for Overgate Hospice in Elland.
The event took place on at the beginning of July in Saville Park, Halifax, for which the Deco–Pakteam were required to run 5k whilst being pelted with multi-coloured powder by supporters.
For Deco–Pak’s finance manager, Rachel Smith, the fundraiser had a particularly emotional significance.
Smith comments: “My mother spent time at Overgate Hospice before she passed away, so I was thinking of her at every step of the way. The level of care she received at Overgate was just incredible and I am really happy that we can further support their work with our team donation.”
