Employees from our UK injection moulding facilities recently signed up to take part in a 5km ‘Colour Run’ with the aim of raising £750 for the Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall charity. We are delighted to announce that not only did all employees complete the 5km run but we managed to beat our target - raising a total of £781 for the fantastic charity.
We would like to say thank you to everybody that contributed and donated to this great charity, every single donation is greatly appreciated. Special thanks go out to our employees or “athletes” as they are now known, that took part in the run donning superhero attire and were able to raise so much money – well done team!

About the charity
The focus at Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice in Peterborough is on quality of life - giving every patient the palliative care and support they need so they can spend their time as they choose. We care for people aged 16 and over who are living with conditions like cancer, heart failure and lung disease. That care is delivered in the community and at our 20-bed hospice. Our team of specialist staff work together so we can be sure patients receive all the care and support they need – physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally. We look after their families and close friends as well, for as long as we can be helpful to them. Thorpe Hall also runs day services open to people living with long-term conditions. They join in activities and outings, helping to boost confidence and giving them the opportunity to meet and socialise with others. The team also supports Synergy Cafés for those living with dementia and their carers, which are held weekly at Thorpe Hall and at the Sue Ryder Café in Stanground, Peterborough.
