A duo of events to reach £1,000 fundraising target

Over the past two weeks the young professionals have completed both the Wolf Run and Myton Moonlight Walk in aid of their chosen charity for 2015, Myton Hospice. I’m delighted to announce that this means we’ve now brought our total money raised for 2015 to £1,000!

On Sunday 6th September committee members Paige, Phil, Rebecca and Carl ditched their suits and took on the 10k off-road Wolf Run. After trekking through freezing cold water, ditches and mud they all made it to the finish line, although they were completely unrecognisable due to being covered in mud!

To my surprise the team’s quotes when they finished the run included “I feel refreshed and ready to go again!” and “Instead of good clean fun it was good dirty fun”.

A week later on Saturday 12th September myself, Holly and Dan led a team of 12 young professionals on the Myton Moonlight Walk. Over 650 people turned out for the annual event which begins at Warwick Castle, and we were proud to be a part of it, both raising awareness and funds for the cause.

This year it was Cowboy themed and I’m pleased to report that the majority got into the spirit of the fancy dress. It took us around 3.5 hours to complete the walk and plenty of fun and networking was done along the way. We had representation from Wright Hassall, Connells, BRI and GBR Phoenix Beard to name just a few.

If you’ve not yet had the chance to sponsor our teams then you can do so here. Otherwise we’d like to thank you for your continued support with supporting such a great local charity.
