From abseiling down a 170ft building to indulging in Krispy Kreme doughnuts – you name it we’ve done it – and its all in the name of raising funds for our friends at John Taylor Hospice. In 2017 we managed to raise a massive £32,727.74 putting our grand total of donations to £113k!

Did you know heroes don’t just exist in comic books and films? We kid you not, heroes walk among us. We’re talking about the firemen, paramedics and other super humans who devote their lives to looking after the rest of us. If they’re not heroic we don’t know who is.
The eSpares team will very shortly be braving a 170ft abseil down the side of a 16-storey hotel. Why we hear you ask? Not because we’re thrill seekers, not because we’re fearless, but because we want to face our fears to support an amazing cause: John Taylor Hospice.
Look up. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Nope, it’s the eSpares team hanging from the side of a 170ft building! That’s right, on the 8th July a group of us will be abseiling from the top of a rather tall hotel. Sounds crazy, but there’s method to the madness. It’s all in aid of a very good cause.
You could say the eSpares team are always game for a challenge. You could also say we’re gluttons for punishment. Either way, a group of us have decided to take on the world’s longest obstacle course, Gung-Ho, a 5k gruelling stretch of inflatable challenges in aid of our chosen charity, John Taylor Hospice. We’ve dusted off our exercise gear and ditched the pub in favour of some hardcore training for this extremely worthy cause.
What are your Easter traditions? A big Sunday roast with the family or an Easter egg hunt perchance? We love Easter for the excuse to treat ourselves with a little chocolate, but we don’t just stuff our faces! We also donate chocolate eggs to one of our chosen charities John Taylor Hospice.
We thought we’d let you in on our yearly Easter tradition to give us a chance to mention this worthy cause we support.
Here at eSpares we do love a worthy cause. Some of you may have heard us mention our chosen charities before: Marie Curie and John Taylor Hospice. We focus most of our fundraising efforts on these two wonderful charities, but that doesn’t stop us from supporting other charity events throughout the year.

As mentioned, last week the employees at eSpares participated in the be a Kid for a Kid campaign to help fundraise for ChildLine. The daily competitions proved successful in bringing in donations as well as excuses to poke fun at those who weren’t so successful.
