As part of their 65th anniversary celebrations, James T. Blakeman and Co Ltd, one of Europe’s leading food manufacturers have pledged to support the DougieMac by choosing the hospice as their nominated charity for 2018.

Their senior management team, have in fact committed to undertake fundraising activities right throughout 2018, as just one of the exciting ways the Newcastle based business is planning to mark its milestone year.

The first event that the Blakemans team will be supporting by putting forward a team to participate in is the DougieMac’s 5K race that will be held at the Wedgwood Estate in Barlaston on March 25th.

Blakemans have also been confirmed as the headline sponsor for the hospice’s annual bike ride in May.

This event will see entrants raise money through taking on a number of challenging courses from the MiniMac 9 mile route to the Ultra 90 mile course. You can sign up, or support the DougieMac Bike Ride HERE

A team from Blakemans will themselves be competing in the cycle event, with both participants and spectators being able to sample some of the manufacturers delicious sausages at a barbeque laid on by them at the end of the course.

Other fundraising activity planned by the team at Blakemans during 2018 includes members of staff taking on the challenge of the Potters Arf Marathon, UK Corporate Games and Killer Mile, hosting a Fun Day at Newcastle Town Football Club and sponsored body waxes.
