We’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate three of our dedicated staff members, Kevin, Elliot and Lex, who last weekend represented NRS Healthcare at Wollaton Hall in Nottingham and took on the Gung Ho! 5K Fun Run Challenge to raise money for BBC Children in Need.
As a business, BBC Children in Need is one of the national charities we choose to support on a yearly basis. Last year, we donated a range of activity packs to 11 Special Needs schools within the Leicestershire area, put together with the help of our Occupational Therapists. This year we have co-ordinated a Bake Sale, hosted a raffle and collected sponsorship from staff members to support Kevin, Elliot and Lex in their quest to take on a 5K Fun Run Challenge, complete with 10 giant inflatables!
After diving head first across the finish line, Elliot told us:
“That was really good fun! Lex and Kevin definitely helped us all get round and I couldn’t have done it without them. Really enjoyed that,” with Kevin adding “We came as a team and finished as a team, so a nice way to spend the day. Looking forward to the next one!”
When asked what she thought of the Gung Ho! Challenge, Lex said:
“Well that was definitely an experience to remember. Loved the foam bit at the end – amazing! The atmosphere has been incredible and I’ve absolutely loved it. We’ll be back again next year!”
