On a glorious May Bank Holiday weekend, Paul Sartori Hospice at Home charity held an amazing 5k inflatable obstacle course event on Carew Airfield. KAPOW! proved to be a very popular event within our County, with over 400 participants tackling the course. The participants ranged from 5 years to over 65 years old, and many followed the Superhero theme and dressed up.
The event had something for everyone, with bouncy castles, food and drink stalls, craft stalls, a bar and live entertainment from Pure West Radio. Many large, local businesses sponsored the event, obstacles and medals, they also helped to promote it across the whole of Wales.
“We would like to thank everyone who helped to make this fantastic, family event possible. Without the generosity of local Businesses we couldn’t hold these big events. A special mention and thanks to Lydia Chambers as she helped to arrange all the craft stalls and she also arranged a bus from Fishguard for some of the competitors” said Sandra Dade, Charity Manager.
This event raised a fantastic amount of £10,901.00 which will help towards the range of services provided to Pembrokeshire people living in the final stages of a life-limiting illness, including home nursing care, equipment loan, complementary therapy, bereavement and counselling support, clinical nurse specialist in palliative care, physiotherapy, advance care planning and training.
The Charity are hoping to hold this 5k inflatable obstacle event again next year, so watch this space! To keep up to date with all their events, go to: www.paulsartori.org/events/ and follow them on Facebook: www.facebook.com/PaulSartoriFoundation/
