The Original Charity Challenge.
A couple of weeks ago our very brave team took part in Tough Mudder and it certainly lived up to the name; very tough and very muddy.
Our wonderful colleague, developer Brandon Ellis-Cairns, took it on himself to ensure we all did something important and meaningful this year, something out of our comfort zone to raise some funds for a very worthy cause.
Brandon selected Help for Heroes. They support ex-service men and women with injuries and illnesses sustained while serving in the British Armed Forces. No matter when someone has served, they give them the support they need to lead active, independent and fulfilling lives. They provide support to the whole family to help them all cope with the challenges they face.
Motivated by Brandon (A.K.A Batman), our toughest consultants, developers and directors accepted the challenge of Tough Mudder. They all worked hard for months to train for the event, which was a gruelling and intensely muddy experience where they fell hard but laughed harder.
We’re delighted to announce that our team, with your help, raised £2286.38 for Help for Heroes and Vanilla have now doubled the donation, reaching a final donation of £4,572.76 for a very worthy cause!
We must thank the toughest members of Vanilla: Jason, Andy, Rachel, Brandon, Andrew, Paul T, Paul D, Mike, James and Kieran for putting the rest of us to shame!
