Intrepid team members from Birmingham building services provider J S Wright have raised more than £5K for Molly Ollys after completing an epic challenge in the Lake District.
Twenty-six staff and three suppliers tested their fitness, commitment and determination by taking part in the Lakes Triple Challenge in aid of us.
They cycled through the trails of Grizedale forest, trekked to the summit of the 803-metre-high Old Man of Coniston and kayaked across Coniston Water, one of the UK’s largest lakes, covering more than 24 miles over an eight-hour period.
J S Wright Director and Team Leader David Cook said: “This was an incredible achievement after our staff and suppliers endured a day of testing and gruelling challenges. We were all proud of our efforts for such a great charity.”
Our co-founder Rachel commented: “The J S Wright team are made of tough stuff! From this particular fundraiser, they have raised enough for us to do 10 wishes for 10 children facing terrifying health challenges – we can’t thank them enough.”
Staff from J S Wright and its sister company Wright Maintenance have now raised more than £6,500 for Molly Ollys this year from events including a sponsored football match, a one million steps marathon, a virtual walk to the company’s London office, and a dress down day before the Jubilee Weekend.
