Running to send aid to Equador

Hannah TrainingOn the 16th April a magnitude 7.8 earthquake hit the coast of Ecuador, a disaster which has taken at least 650 lives in that country and done enormous damage to its infrastructure. This is a country which, although developing, still had an estimated 35% of the population living in poverty before the disaster hit.


The Duraweld Management team were in Ecuador in March on business, and our representatives in Santo Domingo are okay, but are working hard to help their communities cope, and begin to recover.


Duraweld’s team in Scarborough and Nottingham have raised large donations of clothes, nappies & other essentials to send to them, but the shipping company would only ship them at cost.  So we needed to raise around £500. To raise the money needed, company director, Hannah Senior ran her first ever 10k race on May 15th, aiming to achieve it in under an hour, in return for sponsorship from her colleagues, family and friends.


Hannah completed the run in 58mins 47seconds, despite jet lag from a trip to the States the day before. Hannah claims, “I finished in my target time, despite having got back from America just 24 hours before, and the race being at about 4.00am according to my body clock.  Apparently the winner did it in 35 minutes, and obviously the only reason I didn’t beat him was jet lag.” There’s always next year Hannah!


The shipment fund currently stands at £450 – with just another £50 needed to meet the target and send the shipment to Equador. There is still time to donate at: https://www.gofundme.com/runningforecuador.

Ring binders are wonderfully simple pieces of stationery, so you might not think there’s all that much to say about them, but if you’re responsible for making a big order of ring binders you’ll want to know why 2 rings might be more suitable than 3, or why you should be storing your binders at the right temperature.  So, we’ve put together a comprehensive post on everything you need to know about ring binders.  There’s also a lot of information in our resource centre, which goes into even more depth.  (more…)
