Resourcing Solutions gives it some welly for Macmillan Cancer Support

Resourcing Solutions entered two teams into Balfour Beatty’s charity sports day.

A total of 20 teams took part in the competition which saw them pitch their skills in nine different events including wheelbarrow, hopping and ‘welly wanging’.

The family fundraising event was organised by Balfour Beatty to raise money for Ashby Macmillan Cancer Support.

After nine events, one of the Resourcing Solutions teams made it to the knockout stage ‘Tug of War’ but lost out to one of Balfour Beatty’s teams.

Gareth Bone, business development manager at Resourcing Solutions said: “We had a great family day out. Our teams came fourth and fifth overall thanks to the children who were technically a lot better than the adults particularly in hopping and skipping!”

Over £4,000 was raised for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Jo Anne Wilson, Macmillan fundraising manager in Leicestershire, said: “We’re very grateful towards everyone who took part in the charity sports day and helped raise such a fantastic amount. Macmillan relies on donations to fund our cancer care services. The number of people with cancer is growing every day - we want to reach and improve the lives of every one of those people.”

Macmillan Cancer Support provides practical, medical and financial support and pushes for better cancer care. For further information, visit

The event was held on Saturday 18 May at Staunton Harold Hall in Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire.
