Ellacotts takes on Rough Runner!

21 May 2018

On Saturday 19 May, a team of 40 of our staff and Partners took part in the grueling 15km Rough Runner challenge to raise money for our Charities of the Year 2017/18, Katharine House Hospice and Cransley Hospice.Ellacotts Rough Runner team

Battling the heat and the hilly Cotswold terrain, our brave team were faced with 20 torturous obstacles to test their strength and determination, including the Revolution swinging arms, Cargo Corkscrew, Hang Rough and the final challenge to end them all - the Travelator! You can see more highlights of the day on our Facebook page.

Rough Runner was our flagship fundraising challenge of the year. Over the last eleven months we have taken part in dress down days, numerous bake sales and a Christmas Jumper day, amongst many other things. 

Our charities were voted for by our team and we have been delighted to support two such amazing organisations that are local to both our Banbury and Kettering offices. 

We set ourselves an ambitious fundraising target of £7,000. If you would like to help us support the work of these amazing charities, please visit our fundraising page.
