Speedclad takes on Tough Mudder for Macmillan Cancer Support
As part of our fundraising for our Charity of the Year, Macmillan, a team of Speedclad staff took on the Tough Mudder Yorkshire challenge and their fantastic efforts have already raised over £3,000!
Tough Mudder is a renowned mud race, intended to test teamwork and toughness by pushing your physical strength, stamina and mental grit to the limits. With Tough Mudder there are no podiums or clocks to race against, it's all about cameraderie and helping each other through, which made it the perfect challenge for our Speedclad team. A team of 9 Speedclad staff from different departments in the business came together to not only tackle the miles of mud, and obstacles with ominous names like 'Everest' and 'The Block Ness Monster', but to also raise as much as possible for Macmillan.
At the picturesque setting of Broughton Hall, Skipton, the team ploughed through the course, having a great time and showing exactly what teamwork is all about. Each member of the team has been individually raising sponsorship and alongside this, Speedclad and some its supply chain members; EJOT UK, Alsecco UK, Sotech and CGL Facades, also provided corporate sponsorship, giving an outstanding total which is still growing!
A massive THANK YOU to the team and to all who supported and sponsored! More photos from the event are available on Speedclad's Facebook Page.
