Video of St Nicks Wastebusters in Micklegate Run Soapbox Challenge

Wastebusters Run video title

Our brilliant wastebusting recycling team took part in the Micklegate Run Soapbox Challenge on 28th August 2017.  Just like the thousands watching the race, they had a fun time on the day competing with another 50 teams for the trophy. There were some amazing and snazzy looking soapbox carts, plenty of which had professional help in building them. All of them provided a good spectacle – one even caught fire (watch out if you spot a rainbow pooping turtle in the street) whilst others threatened the event staff with their meandering trajectories but, luckily, no-one was hurt and all enjoyed the good show. The winning team finished the track in under 30s, was it ours?

Watch the video to find out how our team fared (and there are some more pictures below)… If you like it, please consider making a donation to our charity. Thanks to all who have!
