A team of Burgis & Bullock staff successfully overcame The Wolf Run and raised more than £1,000 for The Shakespeare Hospice in the process.
The group representing the leading regional accountancy firm 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 – raising £1,022 for the South Warwickshire charity.
The Shakespeare Hospice offers outstanding palliative and end-of-life care to patients, their families and carers across South Warwickshire. Their reach extends beyond the traditional hospice walls, providing expert support within their local community and patients’ own homes.
The Wolf Run included working as a team to conquer obstacles and 10km of raw natural terrain, including open ground, woodland, lakes and thick mud.
James Anstey, Audit Senior at Burgis & Bullock, was among the team that tackled the challenge and says that it was all worth it to raise funds for a fantastic cause.
“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,” said James.
“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.
The firm has offices in Nuneaton, Leamington, Rugby and Stratford-upon-Avon.
