Cyclops Group raise over £400 for Prince of Wales Hospice!

Four of our staff members turned themselves into bright (albeit a bit sweaty!) works of art to raise money for The Prince of Wales Hospice. Charlotte, Gizem, Zoe and Bev took part in this weekend's “Run or Dye” charity run at Castle Howard.

This particular 5K run is slightly different from other charity sporting events as during the race, participants are showered with powder-based plant dye in every colour imaginable until they are unlike any runners you have ever seen!

The team completed the run for The Prince of Wales Hospice as a family member of the Cyclops' team has sadly been battling cancer for the last 18 months and has been receiving treatment there. The hospice provides palliative care and support for patients with life-limiting illnesses and their families.

So far the girls have raised an outstanding £433.96 and we are all incredibly impressed with them! The rest of the office will also be having a dress down day later in the month to raise even more money for this amazing charity.

If you would like to add to the total a donation page has been set up to sponsor the colourful runners and donations can be made via the Just Giving website:
