ENERGETIC staff from an accountancy firm are gearing up to tackle a challenging obstacle course in a bid raise valuable funds for a South Warwickshire charity.
The team representing Burgis & Bullock will be taking on the Wolf Run to raise money for The Shakespeare Hospice on Sunday (April 24).
The team of ten will head to Offchurch in Warwickshire to take on the off-road 10k running challenge – which includes conquering obstacles, and running across raw natural terrain, including open ground, woodland, lakes and thick mud.
Burgis & Bullock, which has offices in Leamington, Rugby and Stratford, is seeking to raise £1,000 for The Shakespeare Hospice – which offers palliative and end-of-life care to patients, their families and carers across South Warwickshire.
Wende Hubbard, managing partner at Burgis & Bullock, said: “It’s going to be a huge challenge for our team but supporting an important cause such as The Shakespeare Hospice will give them the extra boost to get over the line.
“This will be the second time a Burgis & Bullock team has attempted to conquer The Wolf Run and I’m sure that this year’s contingent will be keen to beat the bar set by our team a few years ago.”
Bridget Richards, events and community fund-raiser at The Shakespeare Hospice thanked Burgis & Bullock for its support.
“As a hospice, we rely heavily on fund-raising activities like this to help us provide much-needed care to those across South Warwickshire with a life-limiting illness, as well as their families.
“Furthermore, participation in events like the Wolf Run provide fun and engaging team-building opportunities.
“We are extremely grateful to the Burgis & Bullock team for their support of The Shakespeare Hospice. The money they raise could make such a big difference to someone in their local community.”
