Box-it Glowing for Charity
In support of The Myton Hospices, our official nominated charity for 2017-18, a nine-strong team from Box-it Central and our sister business, Squab Group, dodged the rain showers to take part in last month’s Glow in the Moonlight event.
Decked in neon, we gathered in St Nicholas Park, Warwick to ‘strut our stuff’ in the name of charity and took great delight in embracing the ‘disco decade’ that was the 1980’s. It was a lot of fun, and we were delighted to be supporting The Myton Hospices and the marvellous work they do, caring for patients and their families.
Our challenge was to walk, run or dance 5km around St Nicholas Park. With just over a thousand participants (it was a sell-out event) as well as music, face painters and other entertainment, the atmosphere was truly amazing. There was even some warm-up Zumba which naturally produced a few laughs.
The aim of Glow in the Moonlight was to raise funds in support of Myton at Home patient visits, and while the official total hasn’t yet been announced, we do know that immediately after the event, that some £31,000 had been pledged, with more to come.
