Hospice launches brand new team challenge

St Elizabeth Hospice has launched a brand new team challenge event – a Truck Pull.

Teams of 8-10 are wanted to join the St Elizabeth Hospice Truck Pull to compete to pull a truck 50 metres – in the fastest time possible.

The new event – which is the first of its kind for the local charity will take place on Saturday 18th July, from noon, outside Mannings Amusements, Felixstowe.

As well as the Truck Pull, individuals can challenge themselves further by trying their hand at the Car Lift – testing their strength and stamina as they see how many times they can lift the car – with the most repetitions winning.

Rachael Brown, St Elizabeth Hospice’s Fundraising Support Manager, said: “We wanted to hold a fun, team event to encourage a bit of friendly competition – but to organise something a bit different – and we took inspiration from Suffolk’s Strongest Man – our Catering Manager, Graham Reid.

“If you want to encourage team building and bonding or are looking for a challenge for you and your colleagues, friends or gym buddies, then this is the perfect, fun – but tough – contest for you.”

Teams for the Truck Pull can be male, female or mixed. Each team is asked to raise sponsorship with all funds raised going towards providing vital care and support to more than 2,000 local people living with a progressive illness every year.  

The event will be as much fun for spectators as it is for participants and there will be entertainment for all ages – so bring all the family along too for a fun day out!
