We have sponsored one of our clients, Commercial Estates Group, (CEG Harrogate) in a Bed Race to to raise money for Saint Michael’s Hospice of Harrogate.
The race was on Saturday 14th June and involved pushing the bed around a 2-mile course (including a river crossing!) competing against 89 other teams in front of a 20,000 crowd.
The race also had a theme which was “Children’s TV & Film”. CEG Harrogate chose “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” and paraded the streets of Knaresborough with their bed (transformed into a giant Wonka Bar) dressed as Oompa Loompas complete with green wigs and orange faces, before competing in the race itself.
