Gung-Ho - Great Fun for a Great Cause


Pumps & Gearboxes and Calpeda UK teamed up to take on the Gung-Ho 5km inflatable obstacle course at Temple Newsam, Leeds. It was a great day out and help build stronger relationships with one of our key suppliers.

The pumps & gearboxes team completed the course in an admirable 29mins 38secs, with Calpeda close on our heels! But we certainly had to work as a team to overcome some of the obstacles, especially the 3.5m wall, that was much harder to scale than it first looked! With a roar coming from the on-looking crowd as we managed to work as a team and pull each team member up and over the wall successfully. Well, that was until Chris decided to leave Pav dangling from the top, who nearly fell back down the wall but managed to scramble back to safety all on his own. A little bit like a dazed squirrel scurrying up a tree much too tall for it to climb!

We managed to raise £625.00 for the Children's Liver Disease Foundation as our charity of choice, with special thanks to our sponsors; AB Print Group, Brook Crompton, Richard Alan Engineering, Yilmaz UK and thanks to Hot Chilli Workwear for doing a great job with the T-Shirts!

We feel that our customer service skills are key to our success, and we make every effort to build strong relationships with our customers and suppliers. If you would like to talk to us about your company and learn how we can help you develop more business, please get in touch!
