Why our team braved mud, wire and fire for Leeds Children’s Charity

Bayford Foundation, The Right Fuelcard Company

To say we’re up for a challenge is an understatement after four of our team battled mud, wire and fire in a Spartan Sprint which has boosted funds by almost £700 for Leeds Children’s Charity.

Covering around five kilometres of muddy track, Adam Walsh, Steve Kershaw, Graham Stocks, and Nick Dodsworth overcame a series of obstacles and forfeits to complete the gruelling challenge at Heaton Park in Manchester in around 90 minutes.

As a business The Right Fuelcard Company, which runs our foundation, is committed to putting something back into its local communities – and we’re delighted that the funds raised will enhance the quality of life for Leeds Children’s Charity which provides free residential holidays for over 400 disadvantaged children every year.

Recalls business director Adam Walsh: “We were definitely put through our paces – climbing slippery slopes, sliding into freezing streams and crawling on our hands and knees to avoid barbed wire precariously close to us. It was extremely rewarding to support Leeds Children’s Charity which enables children suffering from poverty, neglect, abuse, learning difficulties, illness – or who are themselves carers – to visit the seaside and make friends.”

Comments Dave Norman MBE, director at Leeds Children’s Charity: “On behalf of Leeds Children’s charity I would like to say a big thank you to Adam and the rest of the team for all of their support. I am constantly amazed and humbled at the lengths that people go to in order to support our work. Without the help and support that we receive from businesses like The Right Fuelcard Company and individuals like Adam and his team our work would not continue.”
