Team Powelectrics 'spark' into life for Fun Run
The team of eight will be walking, jogging and running the 8.5 mile course on Sunday, 5 June, knowing their efforts will be helping to save the lives of those living with leukaemia. Managing Director, Peter John explained: “I’ve participated in the Fun Run several times and enjoy the atmosphere and the ethos behind supporting a charity or voluntary organisation of your choice.
“The company, which supplies equipment and solutions for monitoring, control and automation to a wide range of industries has grown over the last few months taking on new members of staff.
“I felt participating in the Great Midlands Fun Run was an ideal opportunity to encourage everyone to support and at the same time raise sponsor money.
“I’m delighted every member of staff who’s available, has agreed to participate in the Fun Run, which demonstrates the team spirit we enjoy at Powelectrics.”
Anthony Nolan is a charity that finds matches for leukaemia patients who need a lifesaving transplant. For someone with leukaemia, a bone marrow transplant can be their only hope of life. They use their register, cord blood bank and research to find remarkable people who can give them that hope by donating their stem cells. By doing this, they save lives.” Peter added: “The Fun Run is a great opportunity to enjoy a day away from the office and raise money for a charity which is directly saving the lives of those living with leukaemia. “We plan to start together but as some intend to walk, others jog and some run, we’ll find each other after completing the course and enjoy a well deserved drink.”
Fun Run Event Director, Tracey Spare said: “Peter and his members of staff at Powelectrics epitomise the spirit and aims of the Fun Run – enjoying a day with friends, family and work colleagues raising sponsor money for a charity or voluntary organisation of your choice.
“It’s not about how quickly you complete the course; it’s far more about enjoyment and raising sponsor money.”
