£761.50 raised for Bluebell Wood Hospice
A Pacy and Wheatley team lead by the MD Anthony Wheatley took part in the Doncaster Dragonboat Race on 15th July to raise money for the very worthy Bluebell Wood Hospice. The team and supporters on the day comprised of P&W employees, family members and friends.
It was a dismal start to the day (weather wise) but the team embraced the challenge and achieved their objectives of working as a team, enjoying the day and not getting wet (for the most part anyway). The team worked hard and the results were better than anticipated:
- Race 1 - 2nd 76.31 seconds
- Race 2 - 2nd 67.71 seconds
- Race 3 - 2nd 70.25 seconds
Overall, we came 12th out of 28 teams (just missing out on a place in the semi-finals) (1st place time 67.46 seconds) even the sun came out later in the day. We consider this to be a fantastic achievement for our first time taking part in this event. We have already booked our place in the event next year, our target shall be to make the semi-finals.
Most importantly we smashed our target of raising £500 for Bluebell Wood (achieved £761.50 + gift). A big THANK YOU to our team, our supporters and our sponsors.

Pacy and Wheatley visit Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice
A total of £4,081.93 has been raised, to which 25% Gift Aid will be added; which totals more than £922.23 extra in fundraising for Bluebell Wood. Mandy, a Corporate Fundraiser at Bluebell Wood, took us on a short tour of the building and we were introduced to some of the Care Team members, who work on a daily basis with children and young adults with life shortening conditions and complex medical needs.
Bluebell Wood has a very calming, friendly and fun-filled environment that gives children, along with their families and siblings, time to spend together at the toughest of times. The charity, which has to raise more than £3m a year to keep its doors open, is there to provide special memories for families. The building also has two end of life suites for families to stay together when their child has passed away. It made us realise the enormity of the task the Bluebell Wood undertakes each day. Mandy expressed her thanks on behalf of the children, their families, Bluebell Wood staff and volunteers for the efforts of each of the members of the 3 Peaks Challenge Team and to all of those who sponsored them. Again well done to ALL.
