£761.50 for Bluebell Wood Hospice
£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.

Wheatley Wizards fundraising at The Dragon Boat Race

The Wheatley Wizards are a small team formed by Pacy & Wheatley Construction. We will be taking part in the Dragon Boat Race, in Doncaster Lakeside on Saturday 15th July 2017. This event will be a fundraiser to raise money for our chosen charity, The Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, who we have previously supported when we completed the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge.

We believe this to be a very worthy cause and our assistance can bring joy and respite to the patients and their families. As a team, we aim to raise £500 and are looking forward to supporting the event and all of the other teams who will be also raising money for a very worthy cause.

Bluebell Wood Charity

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.

3 Peaks Challenge

The Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge- £5000 and Rising!

To raise money for Bluebell Wood who provide care, respite and support to poorly children and their family and as a fun but challenging way for Pacy and Wheatley staff and family to work as a team outside of our daily work lives. A total of 17 victims completed the challenge including a site engineer, accounts manager, project surveyors, labourer, chairman, cleaner, directors and site managers along with their family. The 25 mile walk comprised of the ascent and descent of the Yorkshire 3 Peaks from Pen-Y-Ghent, Whernside and last but certainly not least Ingleborough. We left Doncaster in a bus provided by Pacy and Wheatley at 4am to arrive and start the walk at 7am. After a break for lunch we then tackled the last peak. Pacy and Wheatley provided accommodation, food and drinks for all our fund raising. In return our team have so far raised over £5000 for Bluebell Wood with the total still rising.
