We were asked by our friends at Event By Event if we could donate a photo booth for a charity event they were helping to organise in Hyde Park called Steps for Jo. Of course, we obliged and donated a 3-hour photo booth hire (one of our Photo Tower photo booths to be precise), complete with a mini-marquee and generator. Event by Event also to helped to secure sponsorship from French bottled water brand Volvic, fitness/activity tracker wristband company Fitbug and face painters Follies Face Painting. There was also an appearance from two dance troupes and a local choir to keep the runners and their families entertained after the run.
The turnout was good despite the rain and the participants helped to raise a massive £27,000 for the charity, as well as of course helping to raise awareness of cervical cancer and promote early detection. We also had a pug make an appearance in the booth!
What is Steps for Jo?
Steps for Jo is an annual sponsored 5k walk & 10k run that takes place in several cities across the UK at the start of Cervical Screening Awareness Week each June. The walk / run is organised by cervical cancer charity Jo’s cervical cancer trust, the UK’s only dedicated charity to women affected by cervical cancer.
