Rambling Penguins raise £3k for Devine hospice fund

Ramblers from Penguins event agency in Windsor raised almost £3,000 for Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service by taking on the 100km Race to the Stones ultramarathon.

A team of 13 took 27 hours to complete route along the Chilterns Ridgeway from Chinnor to Avebury, the oldest path in Britain.

The company, based in Vansittart Estate, Windsor, completed the challenge on July 19 and 20, taking 27 hours through wind, rain, giant hail stones and blistering sunshine along the way.

Penguins managing director Mark Buist said: "We've long been a supporter of Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service and we were delighted to raise so much money for such a worthy charity."

Sally Stevens, director of fundraising for ADCHS said: “Penguins put so much fun and energy into their fundraising.

“Their motivation and team spirit is really inspirational, showing other companies just how productive and rewarding it can be to help build Berkshire’s children’s hospice.
