Staff and friends from Rotherwood Recruitment supported the Sue Ryder Mascot Gold Cup on Sunday 23rd April at Wetherby Racecourse. Local businesses and clubs were invited to sponsor their own mascots to run in the 200 metre, multiple hurdle race. All mascots participated in a recruitment themed warm up featuring some spectacular dance moves judged by Rotherwood Recruitments Manager Director Jo Pagdin.
The day began at 2pm with the opening horse race, shortly followed by the well anticipated Sue Ryder Mascot Gold Cup, with Rotherwood Recruitment the main sponsor for the event. All mascots did a fantastic job despite some rather restrictive costumes and warm conditions! Mr Potato head from ATD Joinery gave an impressive performance finishing in first position, whilst Rotherwoods own RotherRoo ran by Keighley consultant Alex, took home the award for ‘Last Home Without Stopping’. When asked about the race Alex commented ‘ I had never done anything like this before , the atmosphere was fantastic and everyone involved did a great job. My training for next year begins now, fortunately there is one way up from finishing last position!’.
