Marathon runners smash target

A huge congratulations to our two teams of runners who amazed everyone including themselves by completing the 26 mile course around our lovely city of York and surrounding villages. They raised an fabulous £2,015.40 for S.N.A.P.S.

Special thanks to Nicky Jagger who stood in last minute for his mum who was stuck overseas.

Running for SNAPS

On the 20th October two teams of six from Sheppee will be taking part in the Yorkshire Marathon Relay Challenge. This is a marathon distance of 26 miles broken into sections.

This year’s chosen charity was suggested by Tara Stephenson our Purchasing Assistant. She would like to support SNAPS – special needs and parents support- a charity that her family has been involved in for a few years now. SNAPS provides leisure support services for children with special needs of all kinds, and their families. The aim is to support the entire family, by enabling the child, along with siblings, parents and other carers to participate in a shared experience of physical activity, fun and conversation in relaxed surroundings, supported by professional and dedicated staff by providing physio, swimming, hydrotherapy and rebound therapy.

Braai Time


Sheppee have enjoyed a number of braai over the summer, also known as a BBQ to the none Afrikaans speakers!! This is a chance for staff from all departments to socialise, its all part of our family atmosphere.

Sheppee Social

A group of Sheppee staff took a tour of the local brewery, Brew York. They were shown around the ‘Coppers’ whilst the process was explained and they got to sample a number of ales. This was all topped off with the obligatory trip to an Indian restaurant afterwards.
