Ten Capula employees took part in a local 5K Race for Life event on 4th June in aid of Cancer Research UK and they managed to exceed their fundraising target by raising over £1000 for the charity!
The team, who called themselves team ‘Happy Feet’, joined around 2000 fellow fundraisers at the event in Trentham Gardens in Staffordshire which collectively raised over £75,000 for the charity. Capula supported team Happy Feet by donating the raffle funds from its recent 50th anniversary celebratory event in May.
One member of the team, Katie Henshall, pictured below far right, a Bid Writer in Capula’s Nuclear department showed true commitment by taking part in the event remotely. Katie ran the 5K from her last minute holiday destination in Bulgaria, despite being diagnosed with acute tonsillitis!
The team had so much fun participating that they are now already making plans to take part in the Cancer Research UK ‘Pretty Muddy’ event in September.
Capula regularly supports various local charities, and is also sponsoring the Fiddlers Ferry power station annual golf tournament on 11th July, which raises funds for three community charities at the power station where Capula has installed various control solutions at its base in Warrington, Cheshire.
