Cranswick wins BDCI Go-Kart Endurance Challenge

The latest BDCI fundraising event saw 22 teams from 11 meat industry companies compete in a go-karting ‘Endurance Challenge’ and the winning team, achieving an impressive 113 laps, was Cranswick. In second place was Interfood Slicing, completing 109 laps and coming a close third was Marel with 108 laps.

Commenting on his team’s success, Cranswick’s Marcus Hoggarth said: “What a brilliant event! We are delighted to win, but it was really about taking part and supporting the BDCI so it was great that everyone entered into the spirit of things.”

BDCI festival chairman, James Sydenham, said: “This was a fantastic event with a really great atmosphere and positive camaraderie between the teams. Raising funds for the BDCI was of course the main objective of the day and we have successfully achieved that, but it was also an opportunity to have some fun and network across our industry. I would like to thank the organisers for ensuring the event ran smoothly, as well as everyone who came along to support us.

“Our attention now turns to the Annual Festival Dinner on Friday 28th September. With only ten weeks to go, we are busy finalising plans for the evening. As well as raising as much money as possible for the BDCI, I want this to be a night to remember. Lenny Henry is our host and together with his band ‘Poor White Trash and the Little Big Horns’, we can expect to be thoroughly entertained. So make sure you reserve your place now and please get in touch if you can help with auction prizes or sponsorship.”

Tickets for the dinner, priced at £140, are on sale now. Call 01727 896094, email info@bdci.uk.com, or visit the website www.bdci.org.uk and complete the on-line form.
