Overmatter: Bouncy bouncy

The wonderful thing about Tiggers, as everyone well knows, is that they’re bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun!

Well, Tigger is also doing his bit for charity in the shape of Ultimate Packaging executive director Chris Tonge, who, as Printweek went to press, was in the process of a 24-hour bungee bounce-athon – dressed as Tigger, of course – in aid of local hospice St Andrew’s in Grimsby. 

In fact, Ultimate Packaging’s digital centre at its Europarc facility has been turned into a veritable cornucopia of bouncy delights for ‘The Ultimate Bounce-athon’ with staff and visitors and indeed all-comers encouraged to join in the springy fun on a bounce-themed assault course in aid of a good cause. 

We see it also involves that stalwart of childhood bouncing injuries, the space hopper, so what can possibly go wrong?

Tonge’s task was taking place over three eight-hour stages. “It’ll be terrrrrrific,” said ‘Tigger Tonge’, his moniker for the week. We’re just hoping that harness doesn’t chafe too much… 

Ultimate Packaging is aiming to raise £25,000 for St Andrew’s as it undertakes 40 fundraising events to mark the hospice’s 40th year. Grrrrrreat stuff. The donation link is bit.ly/TiggChall.
