Kettering HR firm raises £1,745 for charity after conquering mud challenge

Staff at a Kettering human resources company waded through a series of mud challenges and obstacles to raise a fantastic £1,745 for a leading children’s mental health charity.

Nine team members from HR Solutions completed the gruelling 6K Uventure Run at Cranford Hall on Saturday 30th September in aid of YoungMinds, which provides a range of services to improve the emotional wellbeing and mental health of children and young people.

The HR Solutions team, which supplies outsourced HR services to more than 300 UK and international businesses, consisted of CEO Greg Guilford, Toni Guilford, Kirsti McGhee, Karen Lovell, Alex Butt, Emma Wood, Jessica Hallett, Sheena Harris and Juliet Coates.

The course included a range of obstacles such as hurdles, timber walls, cargo nets, A-frames, rope climbs, water slides, quarter pipes and mud pits.

Greg said: “Every year we choose up to three charities to support by participating in fundraising activities, and it was fantastic that so many of us took part in the 6K Uventure Run. It was great fun – and not to mention messy!

“We’re really proud to raise so much money for a worthwhile cause, and we’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has donated so far.

“We chose YoungMinds because of the support they gave to one of our staff members in relation to a dearly loved family member, and we wanted to show our gratitude for the great work they do in supporting young people and their parents through extremely difficult times.”
