|Tarpaflex Donate Goods to the Hospice of St Francis, for their upcoming Mud Pack Challenge|
We were recently contacted by the Hospice of St Francis, a charity that 'provides professional support and care for people with life shortening illness'.
The Hospice of St Francis are hosting a fantastic Mud Pack Challenge on Sunday October 19th 2014, and so are in the process of sourcing the long list of equipment necessary to stage such an event. The challenge will take place in Hertfordshire in the 170 acre grounds of Ashridge House, and is in the form of a 5-mile obstacle course - to include a lot of mud! Participants will crawl, run, climb, jump, wade and even swim.
We're thrilled to get involved and help support this worthy charity, by donating some of our products to the cause. We are pleased to have provided the following goods, as equipment for the charity to use in the obstacle course; 10mm Polypropylene Rope for participants to use in a tyre tug; 8mm Bungee Cord to create a spider web effect, that the participants will have to negotiate their way through; and a 5m x 20m Black/Silver tarpaulin, to be used as a slip 'n' slide.
Our tarpaulins are really popular for use as slip 'n' slides, and work particularly well with a ready-running hose and a splash of washing-up liquid, for extra slide!
We wish the Hospice the very best of success with the forthcoming challenge.
