On Saturday the 6th of October Pricecheck were proud to be the headline sponsor of this year’s Night Strider, in aid of St Luke's - Sheffield's Hospice.
Night Strider is a chance for everybody to ‘Get their glow on’ for Sheffield’s biggest and brightest night-time walking challenge. Around 1000 people took part by walking 10k or completing a half marathon in Sheffield.
The entire Pricecheck team got involved helping to organise 1000 goody bags to hand out to all participants, and on the night 9 volunteers from Pricecheck were at the event handing out goody bags, water and snacks to all the brave walkers and cheering everybody on to the finish line in freezing autumnal conditions until the early hours of the morning.
Pricecheck directors Mark Lythe and Debbie Harrison cut the ribbon to kick off Night Strider 2018, and 27 members of the Pricecheck team walked themselves, what's more we are proud to say the first 3 out of 1000 walkers to cross the finish line were all Pricecheck members of staff!
St Luke’s are an essential, local charity, and their mission is to deliver the best possible palliative care in Sheffield, whilst developing and driving continual improvements for everyone affected by terminal illness. All of their services are free.
The event was a huge success, previous years events have raised over £100,000 each year for the hospice, and organisers are hoping to surpass that total this time, with Pricecheck raising over £7,000!
