Neonatal charity to benefit from Liniar’s ‘mud pack’

Just three days before this year’s FIT Show, a group of dedicated Liniar staff will be a world away from the shiny stands at Telford and up to their necks in mud, sweat and tears as they tackle the Spring Wolf Run – but the fantastic amount of sponsorship raised so far is keeping them motivated.

Liniar’s Design & Development and Marketing teams joined forces to enter the “extreme” off-road running event to raise money for the Royal Derby Hospital’s Neonatal unit in memory of Winter Wolfe Gaskin, grandson of D&D Director Adrian ‘Reg’ Redshaw, who sadly passed away just one day after his birth in October last year.

“It’s been fantastic how everyone in both departments has thrown themselves into this,” said Adrian. “They’ve all been training hard and raising sponsorship. The generosity of our customers and trade press has also been astounding, with some incredible donations.

“The total is over £4,000 now but with under a month left to go we’d love to reach £5,000, or even more.”

The Wolf Run is a unique mix of running trails using man-made obstacles, with the 10km run course also featuring a huge number of natural hurdles - from lake swims to mud pits, fallen trees, boggy ground, ditches, hills and dense foliage. The photographs from previous events serve to illustrate the challenge that lies ahead for even the fittest members of the team – most of whom are not runners.

The Liniar brand is manufactured in the UK by HL Plastics Ltd and has grown to become one of the UK's most innovative ranges of PVCu extrusions. Group Managing Director Roger Hartshorn has been highly influential in the industry for many years having founded Eurocell and grown it to become one of the leading window systems companies. He assembled a team of highly experienced specialists at Liniar to develop and supply an innovative window system that makes life easier for fabricators.

Liniar's mission is to be recognised as a leading force for quality and excellence in product development – fusing industry experience with innovation, sustainability and loyalty. Starting with a blank sheet of paper, with a proven understanding of the problems fabricators face, the Liniar team has designed out problems that add to the cost or difficulty of fabricating, selling or installing PVCu windows. The result is a window system for the challenges of today, where the means to help fabricators compete more effectively are designed into the system itself.

HL Plastics also designs and manufactures a wide variety of other PVCu products - innovative decking, verandah systems, fencing systems, picket fencing and plastic piling for industrial, landscaping and home and garden use all form part of the Liniar range, with each Liniar product utilising advanced extrusion and moulding technologies supported by a range of secondary processes for specialist finishes.
