Com­mu­nity Link Foun­da­tion

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Celebrations - BY NICOLA KENYON vis­iternews@south­portvis­

STAFF from a South­port ac­coun­tancy firm got splat­tered in paint at the week­end all in the name of char­ity.

The ac­coun­tants from Stubbs Parkin in Hoghton Street took part in the Color Ob­sta­cle Rush at Ain­tree Race­course last Satur­day to raise money for Com­mu­nity Link Foun­da­tion.

The team, which in­cluded Becky, He­len, Alexan­dra, Claire and Lewis, raised £437.50 with money still com­ing in.

The col­leagues found the course of ob­sta­cles more tir­ing than they thought they would but had a great time and ended up cov­ered from head to toe in paint.

A spokesper­son for Stubbs Parkin said: “We all had a bril­liant day rais­ing money for Com­mu­nity Link Foun­da­tion.

“It was a great team ef­fort by Stubbs Parkin and our do­na­tion page is cur­rently at £437.50.

“The page is still open and we’d be very grateful if peo­ple want to make a do­na­tion be­fore it closes in Au­gust.”

The col­leagues wanted to take part in an event that they could all do to­gether and the Color Ob­sta­cle Rush sounded like the per­fect way to have some fun while fundrais­ing.

They chose to raise money for Com­mu­nity Link af­ter hear­ing of its work in South­port and the sur­round­ing ar­eas.

Enda Ry­lands, chair­man of Com­mu­nity Link Foun­da­tion, said: “We are grateful to the staff at Stubbs Parkin for choos­ing to raise money for Com­mu­nity Link Foun­da­tion by tak­ing part in this event.

“It sounds like they had a fun – if slightly messy – time while fundrais­ing for us. We’d love to hear from other groups or in­di­vid­u­als who would like to fundraise so we can con­tinue to sup­port peo­ple and or­gan­i­sa­tions in the area.

“Thanks again Stubbs Parkin!”

The team are now look­ing for their next fundrais­ing chal­lenge – once they have re­cov­ered from this one.
