Contrec take part in local Soapbox Race in raising over £6,000 for Overgate Hospice

The Directors and staff from Contrec, Flowquip and Flowhire recently took part in the local Soapbox race held at our Triangle cricket club. The event saw local individuals and businesses designing and building their own vehicle to take part in the race which raised over £6,000 for Overgate hospice. The vehicle (designed and built by our own management team) must have steering and braking capability and teams are judged on both the time taken to complete the course, along with the creativity of their design and the showmanship of a performance at the start of the race, meaning the team with the fastest time is not necessarily the winner.

It was a great day, and despite our production Director Tom writing off the car on the timed race, lots of money was raised for a great local charity!
