  • Tom & Tom run for charity

    Tom & Tom run for charity

    Not often two people of such different frames join forces and take on a challenge for charity. But Tom & Tom took on the Royal Parks half marathon this year in order to support our nominated charities. On what was one of the wettest Sundays all year, the two of them managed to arrive soaked to the skin just getting to the course. Having deposited their now wet outer clothes in the support tent, they registered and took to the start. One took off like a rocket, the other took a more steady pace. Needless to say when one saw the other pass him in the loop section, knowing he was at least 2 miles in front, heads could have dropped, but no, they both finished smiling, with very different times, but one great result. Well done to both, good news is they are now a few weeks later walking normally again, looking for their next challenge together.

  • 2018 5k Zombie Run

    The Team waited at the starting line trying not to freeze to death from the frosty morning. it took Caitlyn and Richard a few minutes to realize they weren’t prepared for this much running but like true soldiers they pushed through. Thomas, Rupert and Brenda stuck together all the way though. Hawar and Jennie were often mistaken for zombies as they came all dressed to the max. Sean could be seen in the distance sprinting the whole way, leaving his team for the dead. They all met at the end, walked cold and proud back to their cars for a well-deserved rest.
  • Ceroc your heart out

    Ceroc your heart out

    When someone says why don't we all go dancing on Wednesday, you normally look back at them and say are you crazy, its not what we do. Yes, the occasional dance at a wedding, or whilst at the Christmas party, but mid week, in Windsor, with a whole bunch of people from work... never. However in a pincer movement by Ceroc regulars, Brenda and Steph, ten of us stood in lines facing each other on a Wednesday evening ready to... dance!!! Ceroc is a very modern social dance having elements of rock and roll, jive, and salsa. We stated with a series of classes to music, during which you switch partners every two minutes. Needless to say after 3 hours of dancing freestyle and group sessions, we all 'sort of' knew what we had to do and it was an amazing night of dancing and laughter. We all paid £10 to attend with funds going to the charity team. Windsor had better brace itself as we will be back before Christmas, this time with more Carillion volunteers.
