A team of runners from Martin Robey Engineering in Nuneaton recently ran a mud filled obstacle course to raise money to support the Special Care Baby Unit.
The Reaper Run was a six mile rugged endurance course at night through mud at the Heart of England Conference Centre near Coventry on 25th October this year.
Reaper Runners, Chris Allen, John Bishop, Chris Read, Richard and Matthew Jesson work at Martin Robey Engineering who specialise in making car parts for older Jaguar E Type and Jenson cars. Altogether the fit team of colleagues raised £1007 to help buy equipment to support special care babies at the George Eliot Hospital.
George Eliot Hospital Fundraising Coordinator, Jean Whittaker MBE said: “On behalf of the George Eliot Hospital our gratitude goes to this team of runners for undertaking this challenge to raise this wonderful amount of money, which will go to towards the purchase of an incubator. “We are extremely grateful to everyone who fundraises for our Special Care Baby Unit and to those that participate in events such as the Reaper Run. Everyone should be very proud of this achievement.”
