ABAX employees to take on 8 hour pitch challenge for Sport Relief

ABAX’s UK employees will take it in turns to make their way around the Peterborough United pitch at the ABAX Stadium to raise money for Sport Relief.

Sport Relief 2016

The team plan to start their efforts at 8am on Friday 18 March and will then run or walk around the green turf until 4pm.

The eight hour challenge is to raise money for this year’s Sport Relief and is part of ABAX’s 2016 fundraising that also includes a charity cycle ride in June.

ABAX’s Marketing Assistant Lauren George said: “We plan to have at least one of the team walking or running their way around the pitch at all times.

“ABAX has recently taken on a number of new staff in Peterborough and we all thought this would be another good way of getting to know each other as well as raising money for Sport Relief.

“We have a great relationship with Peterborough United and thank them for letting us use the area for our fundraising efforts."

The company moved its UK head office to the Allia Future Business Centre, situated in the Motorpoint Stand at the ABAX Stadium, at the beginning of this year.

The vehicle technology company now employs more than 45 people as it looks to expand its sales activity further across the UK.

Members of the ABAX team will also be taking part in the ABAX2Ajax charity bike ride in June. This is a ride from the ABAX Stadium to the AFC Ajax football stadium in Holland, raising money for the Free Kicks Foundation charity.

It is also currently ABAX’s ‘March Madness’ month and employees have been getting involved in fancy dress days and performance-based prize giveaways. The month aims to promote enthusiasm and fun in the workplace to reward staff for their hard work and inspire them to a greater level of performance.
