Jo Wright and Celaine Cave from Rugby (and a couple of other non- CEMEX friends) are taking part in the London Moonwalk in May as well as organising a fund raising event at Rugby office on the 3rd March.
The Moonwalk is a power walking event around Central London overnight where all participants walk in decorated bras.
Celaine commented: “Having done this event before we assure you it is freezing!! We will be walking a mere 15 miles… (fingers crossed it falls in the pedometer challenge week!). All walkers raise money for charity ‘Walk the Walk’ which is a grant charity and gives all of its funds to various Breast Cancer charities.
More info on the event and the charity can be found here: http://www.walkthewalk.org/Home
To sponsor us on our walk you can donate directly to our fundraising page at: https://moonwalklondon2016.everydayhero.com/uk/Rugbyrackpack
We would like to raise a nice round £1,000 and as part of our fundraising we are also holding an event at CEMEX House in the Canteen on Thursday 3rd March from 10 – 2pm. We have themed this around Mother’s Day as it is the Sunday afterwards and is pertinent to Breast Cancer awareness (it will also be good for non-mother’s day shopping though!)
This is what will be there:
The old favourite – Cake Sale – Lots of cakes and snacks will be available to purchase. Come on down and get some for you or your Team! (All money raised from the cake sale will be donated to the charity). If you would like to donate some cakes we would be really grateful – please let myself or Jo know.
Twinings Home Fragrance – Beautiful hand poured natural soy wax candles and melts made locally in Rugby. (Soy wax is a natural product and therefore does not leave soot marks, etc, and the fragrance lasts much longer than with paraffin wax candles). They all smell wonderful so come and have a smell and purchase some for your home. These make amazing gifts or just a lovely treat for yourself! Premium standard candles at affordable prices – starting at just £2.50.

Alison’s Flanelography – Beautiful handmade gifts using towels, flannels, handmade soaps and other delicious toiletry items. From small gifts up to hampers, Alison has a huge selection of perfect Mother’s Day gifts available with prices starting at just £3.00. These are great gift items.

Bra Pins – We have a box of Bra Pins that can be bought. They are just £1.00 each and all of the money goes to the charity. These are currently on reception as well as a donation tin. If you would like one they will be in the canteen on the day.
Donation Station – There will be a table of donated goods (books, gift sets, toiletries, etc) where you can take an item for a donation. Feel free to bring something in to donate or buy something and leave us some cash in the pot! All money from this will also go to the charity.
Raffle!! – The exciting part! Tickets are £1.00 each and can be bought from Jo or myself. Have a go and have the chance to win some amazing prizes!! (All money donated to the charity as all prizes have been donated).
