The ‘Euroclad Team’ managed to complete the Cardiff Half Marathon

I’m pleased to inform you that all of us in the ‘Euroclad Team’ managed to complete the Cardiff Half Marathon on Sunday 14th October 2012 and to date, are still alive and kicking (only just kicking mind…it’s taken us over a week to get the movement back in our legs!!) Unfortunately some of us, (ie. myself, Sian and Louise) were somewhat, sorry ALOT slower than the others in our finishing times, but we finished it and for this we’re really proud!!

Euroclad Before the Race picture

The above is a ‘Before The Race Picture’….. it definitely would’ve been a different picture at the end of the race trust me!!! (no smiling faces, just faces of pain!! Ha ha)  Ps. Carl Hier took part but is not in the picture as he was stuck in traffic at the time, also, Elaine’s not in the picture as she was ill on the day so unfortunately couldn’t take part, however, she completed her own 13 mile marathon (I’ve seen proof on ‘Map My Run’) 1 week later, this was not only to prove to herself that she could do it but also, to justify the sponsorship money she had raised.

Our aim by taking part in this event was to help raise money for Cancer Research/ Velindre and this, along with actually crossing the finishing line is something we proudly achieved . We’ve now tallied up (to the nearest pound) the amount of money we all raised individually and also the amount collected in the Velindre Buckets which were situated in Unit A & Unit C and we’re pleased to announce that as a TEAM, we raised just over:- ‘£3,600.00’

Thank you so much to everyone who made a contribution, it’s much appreciated……. we’re sure Cancer Research/Velindre will definitely think so too!!! A special thanks to all of our suppliers who donated. Thank-you.

Blackfriars Station Reopens

A larger and more accessible Blackfriars Underground Station reopened for public service in February this year, accommodating more than 40,000 passengers every day.  The dramatic 60% increase in footfall follows the redevelopment of the station and Blackfriars Bridge, both rebuilt and refurbished over the last three years.

We supplied anodised aluminium bespoke fabrications for the station and bridge in the largest contract ever delivered by our fabrications division.  Products included bullnoses curved in several planes, spine cladding, gullwing doors and maintenance access walkways.

Euroclad Architectural Fabrications can design and manufacture anything from simple flashings to unique, intricate fabrications in a range of materials, finishes and colours to help deliver your vision.
