All the way back in back in June of 2011, Tensator was approached by a gentleman who was running a charity event that was very different to those that we usually get involved in.
The event was called Charity Bobsleigh Challenge and it came about as a result of a team of civilian’s challenging the Royal Air Force to a ‘Two Man’ Bobsleigh race, all to raise money for RAF Benevolent Fund and Help For Heroes. The event was held in December is IGLS, Austria.
Tensator provided four 889 Advance Tensabarriers® to help guide people around their marquee at the event, which by their admission was a “little out of hand” the previous year without the use of Tensabarriers®. Not only did the posts enjoy a lovely trip to Austria, they also travelled around the UK with the team (and their bobsled) to promote the event.
Tensator was really pleased to help with such a great cause and with such an unusual event. One of our employees at Tensator was even offered the opportunity to audition to be part of the civilian team – an offer they sadly had to turn down, but with the wonder of YouTube they can watch the races and feel as if they were there, as can you by clicking on this link.
The event was a great success and it is something we at Tensator are really proud to have been a part of. The donation page is still open, if you wish to make a contribution you can visit their JustGiving page.
Huge congratulations to everyone that was involved and maybe next year we will join you!
