A nine-strong team from The Right Fuelcard Company (TRFC) – which runs our fantastic foundation – has braved the UK’s toughest 12K to bolster funds for Leeds Children’s Charity by more than £1,150.
The fearless warriors took on ten kilometres of muddy track, 30 punishing obstacles, 10 tons of ice, and 100 tons of mud to complete the Total Warrior Race at Bramham Park in 2 hours and 28 minutes.
A champion of putting something back into our local communities, the funds raised by TRFC – ranked 34 in the Sunday Times Best 100 Small Companies to Work For in 2016 – will help the charity to provide free seaside holidays for over 400 disadvantaged children every year.
Says our business director, Adam Walsh: “The course included electric shocks, ice-cold water, and extremely challenging obstacles which were aptly named Claustrophobe and Death Valley. We’re delighted to support Leeds Children’s Charity, which takes children who suffer from poverty, neglect, abuse, illness or learning difficulties on a seaside summer holiday at no cost to them or their family.”
Comments Dave Norman MBE, director at Leeds Children’s Charity: “We appreciate Adam and the team undergoing such a gruelling challenge. Without the invaluable assistance we receive from businesses like The Right Fuelcard Company and individuals we would struggle to give so many children a special a memorable break to play on the beach, make new friends, and enjoy respite from the difficulties they face at home.”
With the support of local schools, social workers, families and carers, Leeds Children’s Charity creates happy childhood memories for the neediest of families, with fun-filled, week long break to Silverdale, near Morecambe. For more information visit http://www.leedschildrenscharity.org.uk/
