Tough Mudder Team raise £4k for Bolton Lads & Girls Club

A team of Ener-Vate and Peel staff took part in Tough Mudder at Cholmondley Castle, Cheshire last week, raising over £4k for Bolton Lads & Girls Club!

Tough Mudder, a 15k mud covered course which includes 30 challenging obstacles is renowned to be hard, taking participants over 3 hours to complete. 

Bolton Lads & Girls Club is a registered charity based in Bolton, Greater Manchester and was established over 128 years ago. It was one of the first organisations in the North West to recognise the importance of providing young people with a safe haven to spend their free time.

The foundations of the charity are based on their universal open access offer, 7 days and nights a week, 51 weeks a year, reaching over 3,000 of Bolton’s most vulnerable children, young people and families. BLGC offers centre-based play and youth work, to empower inspire and build confidence and resilience including: sport provision, arts and music programmes, drama, multi-media, outreach and detached street-based programmes and SEND programmes.

Tom Chapman, Ener-Vate's Asset Manager said "It was great to take part in such an exciting challenge with colleagues. It was a real team building event, supporting each other to get through each obstacle, while being covered in mud. We are all really proud of the amount we have raised and would definitely return again - thank you to our sponsors!"
