EEC Home Improvements Raising money the Touch Mudder Way December 9th, 2013 jmr jmr Latest News Latest Uncategorized Shares Comments EEC Home Improvements, a local Southport company raised an incredible £1,245.20 for two charities, Claire House Children’s Hospice and the NSPCC by completing an event known as Tough Mudder, “one of the world’s toughest challenges”. Tough Mudder is a 12 mile test of endurance which includes military-style obstacles including swimming through a container of actual ice (known as ‘Arctic Enema’), jumping from 15ft into muddy water (known as ‘Walk the Plank’) and running through live electrical wires (known as ‘Electroshock Therapy’). 18 staff members were crazy enough to sign up the event and spent their summer training and fundraising. Training included 6 weeks of Bootcamp at ‘Go Commando’, with ex-Royal Marine Ste Howard. Nicola Bourne, EEC’s Charity Co-Ordinator who also took part in the challenge, said ‘We got very muddy, we faced our fears crawling through small dark tunnels, we jumped into a container of freezing ice and got zapped with electrical wires as well as running 12 miles, mostly uphill, in the freezing cold rain, but it was all worth it knowing that we were doing it to raise money for charity. We recently visited Claire House and seeing the children being cared for at the hospice was so motivating; they make such a difference to the children’s lives. We are thrilled that we raised £622.60 for each charity through doing such an amazing event, even if it did take me over a week to recover” The staff at EEC, want to thank everyone who generously donated to their fundraising efforts, including their main sponsor, www.initto-winit.com and EEC Home Improvement’s CEO, Mr John Ball. This Christmas EEC Home Improvements are continuing to support local charities and their community by setting up a donation station in their office, collecting food, blankets and pet food to support a local Southport foodbank and animal sanctuary Submit News Contact us with your community, business or sport news.
