A DETERMINED team of accountants have successfully overcome The Wolf Run and raised over £1,000 for The Shakespeare Hospice in the process.
The group, representing leading regional accountancy firm Burgis & Bullock, embarked on the notoriously difficult obstacle course in Offchurch, Warwickshire.
Burgis & Bullock decided to support The Shakespeare Hospice as their chosen charity and exceeded their fundraising target by raising £1,022 for the South Warwickshire charity.
The Shakespeare Hospice provides palliative and end-of-life care to patients, their families and carers in South Warwickshire.
James Anstey, senior auditor at Burgis & Bullock, said: “It was hard work and a real challenge for all of us, but it went really well, we got through it injury free and we certainly enjoyed it. the challenge.
“You end up using muscles you haven’t used in years and I think we were all in pain the next day! It also takes a few showers to get rid of all the mud.
“I’m not sure we could have made it without working as a team, especially since some sections are difficult to do alone.
“Raising over £1,000 for The Shakespeare Hospice is brilliant and on behalf of the team I would like to thank everyone who has donated and supported us.
“We really can’t wait to do it again and knowing you’re raising money for a fantastic cause definitely gives you the extra motivation to cross the line!”
Burgis & Bullock is enlisting another team of competitors in September’s edition of The Wolf Run and will soon reveal their chosen charity.
