Big Fun Run Sheffield

ECO Penguins gear up for Sheffield 5K

Halifax energy efficiency firm, YES Energy Solutions will be taking part in the Sheffield Big Fun Run this Sunday dressed as penguins.

Seven of YES Energy Solutions’ staff will hit the tracks at the Rother Valley Country Park, kitted out as the nation’s favorite sea birds to replicate their own company mascot.

They are running to raise money for the international charity Renewable World – an organisation committed to helping vulnerable people in developing nations access green sustainable energy.

YES Energy Solutions is a company committed to reducing fuel poverty. They help people improve the energy efficiency of their homes through insulation and heating upgrades.

Renewable World was the obvious choice for the company’s fundraising activities. The charity share a similar mission and help thousands of people in the third world improve their quality of life through low carbon technology.

Philippa Dyson, who works in the YES Energy Solutions’ compliance team is looking forward to the event.

‘I’m slightly apprehensive about wearing a penguin costume, but I’m sure it will be a good laugh and it’s for a great cause. We’re hoping to raise over £500 for Renewable World to help them with their valuable work.’

Domestic Energy Assessor, Cameron Urquhart has already started his training regime.

‘This is a great way to get fit whist raising money for charity. We’ve already doing some team training sessions so we don’t all collapse three meters away from the starting line…mind you, everyone knows penguins are not the most agile of birds out of the water!’
