Karting Challenge raises £3K
The great and the good of the industry gathered together to raise more than £3,000 for charity at the 15th annual Hardware Trades Karting Challenge, organised by Stax Trade Centres joint md David Hibbert.

The event, held last month in Warrington saw Sinnita Cunningham from Dulux scoop the 'fastest lady' award and Adrian Hibbert collect two black flags and the 'Bent Axle' accolade.

The winning team was from Workhouse Marketing, headed by Jamie Brown who clocked up the fastest lap of the day to take the Individual Award for the fourth year I a row.

All proceeds form the day went to industry charity, The Rainy Day Trust. Mr Hibbert said of the day: "We had a really enjoyable day but the real winners are the people in our industry who benefit from The Rainy Day Trust.

"I'd like to say a big thank you to all the individuals and companies who put their hands in their pockets to contribute to this year's event, particularly Bostik, sponsors of the event for the second year running.
