Roaring success

Lincoln-based fabricator Tradeglaze (Lincoln) was the Gold Sponsor of this year’s Camperfest ’21 fundraiser for the NHS.

Organised by motorhome dealer Camper UK, the event took place in August at the Camper UK Leisure Park in Swinethorpe near Lincoln.

The Tradeglaze Tigers team consisted of six Tradeglaze team members who competed in the event’s We’re a Knockout inflatable challenges. Disciplines included running over inflatable slides, group jumping in sacks, diving through foam, and building an inflatable cannon, to name just a few of the tricky tasks the teams had to complete.

Despite intense efforts Tradeglaze Tigers didn’t take home the trophy on this occasion. However, the team were delighted to help raise £10,000 for NHS staff.

The event was headlined by EastEnders star Shane Richie and his Band with a live music performance on the Friday evening, and included a flypast by the RAF’s Red Arrows and live performances by several Lincolnshire bands over the weekend.

Many Tradeglaze staff and their families visited over the weekend and came out in numbers to cheer on Tradeglaze Tigers on the Sunday.

Jeremy Wetherall, director at Tradeglaze (Lincoln), said: “It’s been an extremely busy time for us over the recent month as our teams have been balancing record-high market demand with continuing issues of material supply. This weekend has shown that, despite all the pressures, we are able to pull together as a team and help those in our community who need us.”
