Charity declared winner of “Games of Glory” event at IAPS Group

14 August 2015

Teams of Workers at IAPS Group battled it out in the Games of Glory competition to raise money for a cancer charity

The event combined having fun and raising money for a worthy cause, with team-building and awareness about the importance of personal health and fitness. Teams took part in traditional British sports day events including an egg and spoon race, sack race, three-legged race and bean bag race. There was also a raffle, cake stall, barbecue and non-uniform day to raise further funds.

Steve Couling, IAPS Group Managing Director, who took part in the games, said: “This was a fun way to raise money for a great cause while also further building on the company’s strong teamwork ethic.”

All funds raised will go to HelpHarryHelpOthers, a campaign started by nine-year-old Harry Moseley to help other people with cancer. Harry, who had an inoperable brain tumour, spent his last two years of life raising money by selling handmade bracelets and fulfilling speaking engagements. Harry died in October 2011, aged 11. However, the charity he founded continues to offer help to anyone affected by cancer, while also funding research into a cure for brain tumours.
