Accountants raise more than £1,000 with The Wolf Run challenge

A DETERMINED team of accountants successfully overcame The Wolf Run and raised more than £1,000 for The Shakespeare Hospice in the process.

The group, representing leading regional accountancy firm Burgis & Bullock, took on the notoriously difficult obstacle course in Offchurch, Warwickshire.

Burgis & Bullock decided to support The Shakespeare Hospice as its chosen charity and surpassed its fundraising target by raising £1,022 for the South Warwickshire charity.

The Shakespeare Hospice offers palliative and end-of-life care to patients, their families and carers across South Warwickshire.




James Anstey, audit senior at Burgis & Bullock, said: “It was hard work and a real challenge for all of us, but it went really well, we came through without any injuries and we certainly enjoyed the challenge.

“You end up using muscles that you haven’t used in years and I think we were all hurting the next day! It takes a few showers to get yourself clean from all the mud too.


“I’m not sure we would have made it through without working as a team, particularly as some of the sections are difficult to do on your own.

“To raise more than £1,000 for The Shakespeare Hospice is brilliant and on behalf of the team I would like to thank everyone who donated and supported us.

“We’re definitely keen to do it again and knowing you are raising money for a fantastic cause definitely gives you the extra motivation to get across the line!”

Burgis & Bullock is entering another team of competitors into the September edition of The Wolf Run and will be revealing its chosen charity soon.
