B&Q team to race in BlueBell Wood Soapbox Derby

They’re at it again! Coming joint fourth in last year’s Bluebell Wood Soap Box Derby, the B&Q team are back to see if they can top the table at this year’s event. Led by Logistex’s Roberto Maccio, the B&Q team will be made up of Nathan, Sam, Chris and Ben, racing in a Soapbox based on the Lego Racer Car.

Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice offers care and support to children with a shortened life expectancy, both in their own homes and at the hospice in North Anston.

The event will take place at Clifton Park, Rotherham on 30th September. Entrants must build their own wacky racer to take on the twists, turns and jumps of the 500 metre downhill course.

Roberto says; “Our design this year will be lower, faster, lighter, and the winner. It’s an excellent day out and more than anything it’s all for such a worthwhile cause.”

We’re keeping our fingers crossed!

Logistex Fun Run 2017

On Thursday 20th July, Logistex employees, friends and family gathered together for the 6th Logistex Fun Run. The theme for this year was ‘cartoon villains.’ Participants ran, walked and ambled around the 4 mile circular route, ending up at the pub for some well-deserved grub. The event raised a magnificent £421 (and counting..!) for the Stroke Association.
