As part of its commitment to providing help throughout the wider community, Lincoln-based double glazing fabricator Tradeglaze (Lincoln) Ltd has proudly taken part as the Gold Sponsor of this year’s Camperfest ’21 fundraiser for the NHS. Organised by Camper UK, the UK’s premier motorhome dealer, the event took place over the weekend of 13 – 15 August at the Camper UK Leisure Park in Swinethorpe nr Lincoln.
The ‘Tradeglaze Tigers’ team consisted of six Tradeglaze team members who competed in the event’s ‘We’re a Knockout’ inflatable challenges. Disciplines included running over inflatable slides, group jumping in sacks, diving through foam and building an inflatable cannon, to name just a few of the tricky tasks the teams had to complete. Despite intense efforts Tradeglaze Tigers didn’t take home the trophy on this occasion; however, the team were delighted to take part and help raise funds for NHS staff who have been working flat-out and harder than ever over the recent months. Camper UK have confirmed that the event has raised a whopping £10,000 for the NHS.
The event was headlined by EastEnders star Shane Richie and his Band with a spectacular live music performance on the Friday evening and included a flypast by the RAF’s Red Arrows and superb live performances by several Lincolnshire bands over the weekend. Many Tradeglaze staff and their families visited over the weekend and came out in numbers to cheer on Tradeglaze Tigers on the Sunday!
Jeremy Wetherall, Director at Tradeglaze (Lincoln) Ltd, said: “I am so proud of the team behind Tradeglaze. It’s been an extremely busy time for us over the recent month as our teams have been balancing record-high market demand with continuing issues of material supply. This weekend has shown that, despite all the pressures, we are able to pull together as a team and help those in our community who need us. The weekend raised a significant sum for the NHS who I’m sure have had an impact on all our lives at some point or another. We have a fantastic business run by fantastic people.”
