Pellacraft has enjoyed significant growth in turnover and employee numbers over the last year and is celebrating its 35th anniversary. The team members who took part this year were Nicola Pella, Rosemary Pella, Dave Arnold, Kayleigh Oaksford, Shantelle Hall, Rebecca Coles, Natalie Kettle, Laura Richards, Leigh Murcott, Luke Christie and Sam Brown.

Commenting, Pellacraft Director, Nicola Pella said, “As our nominated charity we’ve been supporting Framework for over a year now and have witnessed at first hand the positive impact the charity has on our local community. If we can raise more money whilst also having some fun as a team by taking part in the Runga Run, it’s a win-win scenario.”

Runga Run is named after the Hindi word for colour and has roots in ancient religious festivals. It is a non-competitive 5km fun-run in which participants are covered in an array of powdered paints by spectators.  Pellacraft also provided participants with a branded white T-shirt in order to help create the colourful spectacle and have fun whilst raising money for a worthwhile cause.
