Octopus Personnel Extends it’s Tentacles for Cancer Research

The Octopus Personnel Team joined forces to take part in Bournemouth’s ‘Race for Life’ to help raise awareness, fundraising and support for Cancer Research. Clad in pink vests and accompanied by the company mascot ‘Ozzy the Octopus, they combined with thousands of other runners and walkers on a beautiful Sunday morning to lend their support to this inspirational charity.

The Dorset based company’s owner Sandra Smart said “after last year’s event we’d talked about how much we’d like to have been involved and this time we made sure it happened. Most of us have family members or friends who have been affected by this life-changing disease and to take part in this year’s ‘race’ was such an uplifting and emotional experience as we swapped stories with complete strangers and listened to how they had coped with the adversity brought into their lives by cancer.”

“We had a few sore feet and aching limbs between us at the finishing line, which didn’t matter as it was a privilege to have been able to demonstrate our support for Cancer Research”.
