Independent sleep retailer Land of Beds has announced it sponsored a ‘fun run’ in Frodsham, while also taking part with a mattress.

Land of Beds, which opened its new Church Street showroom earlier this year in March, entered a team and became the first ever beds retailer to race with a mattress round the 1.3mile Castle Park course in Cheshire. 

Now in its 11th year, the ‘fun run’ saw 250 people take part, with Land of Beds proudly sponsoring the event, in which it donated some Fine Bedding Company pillows to each category winner.

Mike Murray, managing director of the third-generation family business, said: “Team work, healthy lifestyles and community giving are values we’re proud to support. We donated to Frodsham Community Association and volunteered a marshal for the race, which we competed in as a team for the first time this year.

“We love a challenge and to include our family in everything that we do, which is why our expert delivery team helped me carry my son George down the home straight! We had a fantastic day supporting Frodsham Community Association, meeting customers and soaking up the sunshine and family atmosphere.”
