May 2018 – The West Group supported Helen Oldridge, our Technical Department Manager, with her Epic Ox Race Series Challenge in aid of Parkinson’s UK. The challenge was 4 races over 3 days, covering a total of 126km (78.3 miles) round Rushmore Forest:-
The Dark Ox – 10.5km night race on Friday night
The Ox 50 – 50 miles on Saturday
The Light Ox – 10.5km in daylight on Sunday morning followed by The Ox Half, another 13.1 miles
To support her campaign, we held a fundraising day at the office which included contributions for dressing down and a pizza delivery. The West Group doubled the money we raised on the day plus Helen’s sponsorship by staff, which meant that the final amount we donated to Parkinson’s UK was £696. So far Helen has raised a total of £866, a fantastic amount for an epic challenge!
