We have successfully raised almost £3500 from our nationwide run, cycle or row challenge last month.
Each of our 14 depots were set a specified distance in order to reach the 1500 round mile circuit either by running, cycling or rowing. Whilst some took to the outdoors others used local gym facilities and stationary equipment to tackle their mileage.
Commercial Director, Nicky Simpson, took to the water at Gloucester and Sharpness canal with fellow rowers from the Abingdon Rowing Club, whilst Operations Director, Rick Taylor, and the staff from Gloucester rode alongside on the pathway on bikes. The Exeter depot used a stationary bike from the personal, one-to-one training centre, Fitness Matters and staff at the Romsey head office had the opportunity to use equipment at their local Fleming Park gym.
These are just a few examples of how our depots got involved over the weekend.
Help for Heroes is one of two charities SHB have chosen to support in 2014 alongside Cancer Research. With a number of staff and their families affected by what our wounded soldiers go through supporting this charity was a natural decision.
Well done to everyone who took part in the challenge to raise money for such a wonderful cause.
