Parkers’ staff enjoy sponsored walk
and BBQ in aid of TCT

STOCKS AND CHAIRS AT THE
TCT CHARITY WALK

On Saturday the 3rd of June 2017 Parker Building Supplies staff and management gave up their weekend lie-in to get together for a sponsored walk and BBQ to raise money for our Partner Charity Teenage Cancer Trust and collected just under £3,000 in the process.

The official starting point was on the Cuckoo Trail in Heathfield at 9:30 am, where 20 intrepid walkers began the 12 mile trek southbound, eventually meeting up at our new Head Office premises for the BBQ, refreshments and games.

While the majority of the walkers chose to wear the official Teenage Cancer Trust T-shirts, the ‘odd few’ made a great effort to dress to impress.

THE POLEGATE PILGRIMS PROGRESS...

Eventually the walkers arrived at Head Office in Polegate, to be greeted by supporters, volunteers, the aroma of BBQ sausages and a power walk to the finish line between Ryan Philo and James Lear with the latter being announced as the winner in a photo finish. Although James received the winner’s medal, both the boys were awarded a bottle of fizz, donated by some of our generous suppliers.

Pre-prepared refreshment packs for the walkers, donated by our suppliers, were handed out to the weary walkers. (Just reward for braving the heat and the 12-mile trek.) The bar, the BBQ and the cake sale then opened for business with donations encouraged in exchange for the food and drinks.


Various members of staff were keen to pose for pictures in the seaside-style peep-through posing boards. Others, including our very own Stewart Pierce (pictured above), were banished to the stocks. The opportunity to soak the boss with wet sponges proved to be irresistible for some!

All in all it was a lovely day, dry and sunny throughout, with a great turn out enjoying the fun, whilst raising lots of money for a great cause.

The final total of the money raised will be published when all the sponsorship donations have been collected. But it’s not to late to donate as you will see below. Meanwhile a massive ‘thank you’ to all the Parkers staff, family and friends who have so far helped to raise an incredible £2900 for Teenage Cancer Trust.
