Businesses challenged to compete to raise money for the Henry Allen Trust

Aqua Parcs has officially launched its Business Challenge with the help of Dawn Allen – mother of Henry Allen and Founder of The Henry Allen Trust.

For each participant that takes part in the challenge, the Trust will receive £5. All participants have to do to take part is to simply complete a circuit of the Aqua Parcs course in the fastest time.

The sessions where participants can take part are to be held on each Thursday at 7pm and costs just £15 to take part. You’ll swim out to the starting point, receive a walk-through of the course ahead and then it’s back to the start to record your time. You get one shot to make it to the end.

The top 20 times make it onto the leader board in the park’s reception and the winner will receive £250 PLUS exclusive usage of Aqua Parcs for an hour. There are also prizes for 2nd and 3rd place. A £200 Aqua Parcs gift voucher, and third place will get a £100 Aqua Parcs gift voucher.

This is a Business Challenge so each person will represent their own business – no matter how big or small!

Dawn Allen and friends kicked off the Business Challenge and set the first series of times, making it in just over 2 minutes.

Joe Grix, co-owner of the park, said: “As well as supporting an amazing local charity, this is a great chance to challenge your colleagues, set your own business challenge and see who’s the fastest in the company.”

Wetsuit hire is included in the £15 price.

Aqua Parcs is open seven days a week until September. For more information or to book, visit

The challenge is in aid of The Henry Allen Trust, which was founded in memory of Henry Allen who lost his battle to STAGE 4 HIGH RISK MYCN AMPLIFIED NEUROBLASTOMA, a childhood cancer in October 2013.

The charity aims to bring ‘happiness’ to children and families battling childhood cancer. Dawn, Mark and everyone involved with the trust have worked tirelessly to ensure no family is alone during their journey.

The Henry Allen Trust is there for these families from initial contact, all the way through the rest of their journey, be it treatment, remission or palliative/end of life care and beyond.

The Trust do this by providing treats and wishes, financial assistance and emotional support to the families as well as holding a monthly THAT Support group where families come together to enjoy quality time with each other and share their experiences. The Henry Allen Trust also work with hospitals providing care packs, toys, arts and crafts, ward visits and even specialised equipment.
