Mud and Money for a good cause

11 Aug

Congratulations to Paul Yates, Kieran Harvey, Peter Twentyman and the Golborne Hockey club on a muddy weekend of fundraising success.

It was a tough weekend for the trio from Pure AV, who together with 6 of their team mates from Golborne Hockey club faced fire, mud, electric shocks and water obstacles to successfully complete the gruelling 10K Total Warrior obstacle course in aid of the charity Dementia UK.

The team participating for the second year running emerged from the experience muddy yet unscathed, and delighted to have secured over £1,000 for an excellent charity that provides invaluable care and specialist support to families affected by dementia.

Back in the office as memories of the post event aches and pains are fading and muddy clothes are going through their fourth wash cycle thoughts are already turning to next year’s event.

As Paul explains,

“The atmosphere on the course is excellent and everyone gets stuck in to help each other round. Support from friends and family has been superb, last year we raised just over £1,000 for Joining Jack and this year thanks to their continued support we were able to match that figure for Dementia UK. We have already signed up for next year and will be doing it in support of The Christie Charity. If anyone is thinking of getting involved, I would definitely tell them to go for it”.

If you would like to add to this year’s total there is still time to donate. Visit their JustGiving page.
