Among those taking part were a team of 73 employees from Sulzer Pumps, all of whom were amazed by the inspiring atmosphere at the event. “We were proud to be involved this year,” a spokesperson for the group said. “An enjoyable day was had by all and we felt honoured and privileged to participate and raise funds for such a worthy cause. We would like to thank all our sponsors who contributed to our fundraising.”
