Christies Care is tackling inflatable obstacles for a great cause

In the run up to Christmas, Christies Care, the national 24/7 live-in care provider with headquarters in Saxmundham, is fielding a six-strong team to take part in the Ipswich Inflatable Santa Run to raise vital funds for Lighthouse Women’s Aid. This open event takes place at Trinity Park on 2nd December.

The team from Christies Care (pictured) includes: Victoria Shortley, Emma Murdoch, Nadine Ling, Kate Harvey, Sophie Emmerson and Cameron Campbell though the event is open to everyone. Competitors will have to contend with ten inflatable obstacles, including a ripple run, mega mountain and a final leap of faith, to complete the gruelling 5k course. All kitted out in full Santa costumes!

All funds raised by the Christies Care team will go straight to Lighthouse Women’s Aid which is especially pertinent as 25th November is International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. People show support for the cause by wearing white ribbons, which can be obtained from Lighthouse Women’s Aid amongst other places.

Lin Barnes Director of Christies Care, said: “It will certainly be a spectacle and it’s all in aid of a great local charity that offers confidential advice, help and refuge to women and children trying to rebuild their lives away from the shadow of domestic violence. They do a brilliant job of helping people who have nowhere else to turn, and Christies Care is eager to raise as much money as possible, so they can continue to help many more.”
