A group of employees within SSI Schaefer got together and took part in this year’s Race for Life raising just under £500 for Cancer Research UK.
Five members of the Schaefer team bravely battled against the elements on a wet and windy day in Winchester to complete the 5K race.
This is the first time that a Schaefer group has completed Race for Life, which is all about having fun, raising money and celebrating the lives of women that have either won or lost their battle with cancer.
Paula Hopgood, Senior Sales Administrator, SSI Schaefer, said: "We had such fun taking part in the race, despite the awful weather! It was such a triumphant feeling when we all crossed the finish line, knowing what a good cause it was for. We decided to get involved in the race as a group following a team member that was personally affected by cancer and because there are so many other people and families affected by it daily – it is a truly worthwhile cause and we have all agreed to take part again next year, where we hope to raise even more money."
