February sees the launch of Luxfer’s “Get Breathless” campaign in support of the British Lung Foundation’s efforts to raise record-breaking funds throughout 2005.
The “Get Breathless“ campaign invites Luxfer employees, family and friends to get together in support of this well-deserving cause when people of all ages, shapes and sizes will be raising money for the BLF by being sponsored for cycling or swimming, car washing or simply walking to work instead of taking the car.
Luxfer’s European Marketing Manager Vicky Butler adds; “This is an extra-special year for the BLF who celebrate their 20th birthday with a long line-up of events including the fun-filled public awareness campaign “Love your Lungs” promoting the message that exercise is good for the lungs together with advice on how to keep them healthy.
For the third consecutive year Luxfer will also be Silver sponsors of the BLF Lung Run in Sutton Coldfield on Sunday, the 24th of April when over 2,000 runners are expected to take part.
Last year, Luxfer employees from Gerzat and Nottingham achieved times well under 25 minutes in the 5k run and the 10k team went on to win the 4th challenge trophy.”
Luxfer will also be sponsoring Nottingham employee Barbara Vaughan who will be running the full London marathon for the first time on Sunday April 17th in an estimated time of four and a half hours.
