Kingcombe Aquacare – Cancer Research UK Relay for Life

Over the past few months a team from Kingcombe have been raising money in aid of Cancer Research UK. Not only have we raised money by holding fundraising events such as raffles and a pub Olympics, but on the 22nd July, the team took part in the ‘Relay for Life’ in Crewkerne.

This involved John, Theresa, Scott, Kevin, Becky, Kimberley, Rosenn, Nick, Mike and Graham, along with support from our family and friends, to set up camp and take turns to walk round a track for an epic 24 hours!

Throughout the event there were themed slots which involved the team dressing up in funny outfits. These included Glam Rock, Onesies, Glow in the Dark, Masquerade, Superheroes & Princesses and a Miss Relay section for men only where Nick, Kevin and Scott got their glad rags on and strutted around the track!

We have nearly raised our goal of an amazing £2,000. This will support Cancer Research UK’s life-saving research into preventing, controlling and curing all cancers. Every step we make towards beating cancer relies on every pound donated and any donation will make a real difference!

We would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to everyone who has supported us over the past few months. All of the companies who have supplied us with gifts for our raffles, people who have donated and our friends & family.

What a difference a day makes

Yesterday saw a miraculous change at Old Ford Lock on the Regents Canal in Tower Hamlets, East London.

We are working under contract to Fountains, carrying out ongoing maintenance work for the Canal and River Trust. One of our “Aquatractor” weed boats works on the London canals through out the summer, cutting weed, removing litter and keeping the waterways looking their best.

Here are more details of our weed boats: http://kingcombe.com/aquatractor/home/
