Taylor Wimpey staff get early look at Suffolk’s newest mud run

May 16, 2019

Staff of regional housebuilder Taylor Wimpey have been testing part of a new obstacle course and mud run.

The Piglet, Junior Hog is an entry-level version of the popular Whole Hog and Boss Hog events that have been firm fixtures in the Suffolk calendar for over 10 years.

It is aimed at those wanting to take part with their children or just those who would like to run a shorter route, and will benefit EACH.

Taylor Wimpey East Anglia is sponsoring the Piglet, Junior Hog and that has meant staff getting to try some of the cargo nets, tunnels and rivers those taking part can expect to be scrambling through.

Caroline Carter, Taylor Wimpey East Anglia Sales and Marketing Director, says: “EACH is a fantastic charity and we’re delighted to be able to continue to offer our support by sponsoring the Piglet, Junior Hog event. Our work across East Anglia brings us into contact with many families who may one day benefit from the care and compassion shown by the charity’s staff and volunteers. We at Taylor Wimpey are all big supporters of the work EACH carries out across our region and without them hundreds of children and young people would struggle to get the care they need. We’re looking forward to the event and hope the participants raise plenty of money for EACH.”

  • Renee loves going to The Treehouse, but it’s great that care staff are also able to visit us at home too. Stacy, Renee’s mum
  • When we first heard about the hospice we were apprehensive because we didn’t know what to expect. When we got there we realised it was a lovely place where Renee would be well looked after, and we would be able to have a much-needed break. Stacy, Renee’s mum
  • I really love going to the hospice. I’ve made friends there and get to do loads of fun stuff. Renee
  • EACH supports families when they’re at their absolute lowest, helping them to come to terms with their child’s illness, losing them and beyond Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • I can’t imagine what it would have been like. Nobody should have to, every family should be offered the support we were, and are still getting Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • EACH helps us to create lovely memories and has played an important part in all of our lives, not just Lucy’s. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • We arrived at the hospice feeling scared and alone. We had so many questions – they answered them all and more. Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • Children like Lucy don’t get the opportunity to go to sleepovers or to their friends for tea, so the interaction she has at the hospice is priceless. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • EACH has helped us keep Stanley’s memory alive. And allows us to look to the future Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • It’s been a great opportunity to meet other parents in a similar situation, something that doesn't really happen anywhere else. Helen, William’s mum
  • The play specialists are excellent and I also get inspiration from the activities they organise. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • I didn’t realise hope was a gift until I became a mum. My little boy taught me many things and that was one of them Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • EACH helped us with coping mechanisms and special ways of remembering Stanley. Brad, Stanley's Dad
