The S&G team of ten took part in the challenging obstacle course, held at Cholmondeley Castle in Maplus, Cheshire, to raise vital funds for two great charities who are both in need of financial support.
The first was The Nicole Rich Foundation, set up to support two young sisters called Nicola and Jessica who have been diagnosed with Batten disease, an extremely rare neuro
degenerative disease that takes away the ability to walk, talk and feed themselves. The foundation works closely with the Batten Disease Family Association (BDFA) to help raise awareness and raise as much money as possible. All fundraising donations are divided between the BDFA, as well as providing help towards the ongoing cost of the care & support for Nicole & Jessica as their needs change, allowing the family to go on memory making adventures.
The second was the Sea Seashell Trust, a charity based in Cheadle Hulme, Stockport, Greater Manchester, for children, young people and adults with sensory impairment, profound and multiple learning difficulties, and profound communication difficulties.
Nik Griffiths, Operations Director at S&G Response said, ‘We are delighted that our team completed the challenge, it was physically and mentally demanding but all of us put in 100% effort and made it to the end. Raising £1,000 for our efforts is a great amount, which we know will be greatly received by both charities.’
