Source Raise Money In Race For Life

Source will be taking part in the Shrewsbury Race For Life on 1st July 2018 and raising money for Cancer Research UK.

The women’s-only event has been running since 1994, where ladies across the country are sponsored to walk, jog or run the 5-kilometre course. This years event will be taking place at The Quarry, Shrewsbury, with all proceeds raised going to help the fight against cancer.

Sally, Kirsty, Paula and Jem are all excited to be taking part as a team this year and are delighted to be joining other women from Shropshire and beyond to support this great cause. In fact, they love this event so much that this is their sixth time taking part!

Show Us Some Support!

We are aiming to raise as much money as possible (at least more than last year’s total of £870), and whether it is pennies or pounds, your donation will go a long way towards battling cancer. You can donate online via our team page, or alternatively, you could always come down on the day and show your support by cheering us on.

We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has already made a donation, your support and generosity will help millions of people whose lives are affected by cancer (plus, it will fuel our legs).

If you are thinking about coming along, make sure you say hello. We look forward to seeing you at the starting line!

Charity Online Game Back By Popular Demand

Throughout December, a leading design agency in Shropshire has been raising money for Severn Hospice with an imaginative charity game.

Source of Shrewsbury revamped their much loved Charity Pairs Game for Christmas 2017, giving players the chance to win a daily prize donated by their clients. During the countdown to Christmas Source also committed to making a cash donation to Severn Hospice. The money was raised on behalf of every person who played the online game.

Raising Money For A Good Cause

Source is pleased to announce that they raised a total of £891 for the charity. “We are delighted to be able to make this donation. It is fantastic to support another great Shropshire charity”, said managing director Sally Tringham. “We had great fun creating the Christmas Charity Pairs Game. It is always exciting to see how many people enjoy playing it”.

She went on to say, “I would like to personally thank all of our lovely clients who donated a prize to the competition”. The list of prizes included an overnight stay at Darwin’s Townhouse and a supply of tasty snacks from Tyrrells crisps. Plus, a £100 Wilstone gift voucher, a drummer model from Timberkits and a two month subscription to B.Fresh juice, plus many more.
