On Saturday 8th September the team at Prime embarked on their latest Charity Challenge, this one known as Prime’s Space Hopperathon. The Space Hopperathon saw two teams of Prime employees leave the offices in Coventry and Solihull and bounce 13 miles to the Hatton Arms. Team members shared responsibility for bouncing on the space hopper ensuring someone was bouncing at all times along the route.
The team from Coventry bounced through Kenilworth down the high street drawing a considerable amount of attention from drivers and other members of the public going about their Saturday morning. The Solihull team joined the canal early on their journey which challenged the team to not only stay on the space hopper, but out of the water!
After setting off at 7:30am both teams arrived at their destination 11 hours and 13 miles later at the Hatton Arms, where they were welcomed back by friends and family.
Kevin Johns, Prime’s Managing Director commented “We are always looking for different fund raising activities and I think with the Space Hopperathon we certainly achieved this. We’ve undertaken a variety of challenges over the years which has seen us cycle to each end of the country, climb mountains and walk over fire however this has got to have been the most challenging activity we have ever undertaken”
Maria Brown from SoLO (one of Prime’s nominated charities) said “Thanks to the Prime team for taking part in the Hopperathon on Saturday – it is very gratifying to know that there are lots of mad folk out there doing amazing things for others!”
Each team member raised sponsorship money by taking part and the team raised £2,000 for their nominated charities. To see photos of the challenge or for details on how to donate please see their website.
