Staff from Burgis & Bullock are gearing up to tackle a challenging obstacle course in a bid raise valuable funds for a South Warwickshire charity.
The team representing the leading Midlands accountancy firm 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 is seeking to raise £1,000 for The Shakespeare Hospice through the challenge. 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 firm hosts a range of fundraising events throughout the year to raise money for causes from across Warwickshire and, specifically, for many of their charity sector clients.
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.
“The Shakespeare Hospice provides an invaluable service to many families in South Warwickshire at the most tragic of times. Hospices are mostly self-funded and rely on charitable donations, so for this year, and also having just welcomed the Hospice as a client of the firm, we thought it important to show our support and make The Shakespeare Hospice our chosen charity.
“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.
“They have all been training hard in preparation for the challenge and we hope to raise as much as we can to support The Shakespeare Hospice.”
Bridget Richards, Events and Community Fundraiser at The Shakespeare Hospice, said: “As a Hospice, we rely heavily on fundraising 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.”
Burgis & Bullock has offices in Leamington, Nuneaton, Rugby and Stratford-upon-Avon.
