Quantum CAD has managed to raise over £1000 for GLAZE Cancer Charity. Thank you to everyone who helped us achieve our goal. By helping us to achieve our target you are also helping Glaze achieve their target of establishing a centre of excellence for Cryotherapy in the Princess of Wales Hospital, Bridgend.
As for the race itself, it was a major success. Every member of the Quantum team, who started the race, finished the race. And finished with very credible times. With everyone finishing within two and a half hours.
If you would still like to support the GLAZE you can send your donations to www.justgiving.com/quantumcad.

Steve and Martin from Quantum CAD took part in Trailwalker UK. The challenge was to walk 100 kilometres in less than 30 hours as part of a team of four. With approximately 1,700 people taking part, they set off from the starting point, at Petersfield, on Saturday 15th to follow the South Downs Way to Brighton. The team walked through the night, barely resting until the Sunday morning, when they arrived, triumphant, at Brighton Racecourse. Only 88% of the 403 teams taking part managed to finish. All of these people were walking with the same purpose: to raise money for Oxfam and the Gurkha Welfare Trust and to have a great day out.
At the finish Steve said: “None of us have ever done anything like this before and it was a great challenge. As a team we managed to raise well over £1,000. We are quite proud of ourselves to have finished the walk in 24 hours.”
Martin added: “I would recommend it to anyone wanting to test their physical and mental stamina, friendships and torch batteries! It will also give you a huge sense of achievement.”
