MAD dashers raise money for Bluebell Wood

Ten MAD dashers, from VolkerRail, have taken part in a 5km colour run for Bluebell Woods Children’s Hospice.


Emma Glenc, Karen Watson, Bria Carroll, Andrea Frost, Melanie Binns, Elizabeth Reaney, Elizabeth Bevens, Rebecca Collinson, Margaret Pinder and Tina Cator, who work within different departments based in our Doncaster office, joined over 3,000 other participants to run, jog or walk the 5km route at Rother Valley Country Park, Rotherham last Saturday, raising an amazing £1,545.

Commenting on the event, corporate communications executive, Tina Cator said: “We all take part in a weekly running club at work, to help with our fitness and well-being, and chose the colour run to help us reach a goal. The event to us however, wasn’t about the distance; it was about helping this local charity - who do amazing things. 

“Thank you to everyone who donated; Bluebell Wood gives families the chance to relax, take a break and have fun when they need it the most, you have all helped contribute to see this continue.”

Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice offers care and support to children with a shortened life expectancy and life-threatening conditions, both in their own homes and at their hospice in North Anston.
