Belvoir tough it out for Parkinson's UK
June 09, 2017
Seven members of Belvoir’s franchise support team from Central Office took part in a gruelling sponsored Tough Mudder Half in May, raising hundreds of pounds for Parkinson’s UK.
Speaking of the achievements of the team, Belvoir’s Chief Operating Officer Dorian Gonsalves said, “Many congratulations to everyone who took part in this extraordinary challenge. I know that everyone who took part trained hard for months in preparation for the five-mile course, which involved 15 obstacles and lots of mud around the grounds of Belvoir Castle. This was a real test of teamwork and endurance.
“The team was amazing, and together they managed to slip, slide and pull themselves around all the obstacles, which included The Quagmire, The Block Ness Monster and the notorious Everest Mountain. I believe that the final time was two hours and 50 minutes, which was very impressive.
“Belvoir is extremely grateful for all the generous donations that were received. The team set out to raise £500 for Parkinson’s UK, and the total raised so far is over £700, which is absolutely incredible!
“I am very proud of everyone and admire their determination. Although it was very challenging, the team also had a lot of fun, and have decided to do the full Tough Mudder next year and raise even more money for charity.
“As a business, we believe that teamwork is vital in helping Belvoir’s franchisees to achieve their maximum potential in business, and I have no doubt that this ability to work together helped team Belvoir to complete this unique challenge and in doing so to raise such a fantastic sum for charity.”
