Bankers get muddy to raise thousands for hospice

Colleagues from NatWest demonstrated their team spirit when they took part in an endurance race, raising over £4,200 to help St Richard’s Hospice provide compassionate care to patients with live-threatening illnesses and support their families.

The group of 12 colleagues needed all of their team spirit when they lined up for the Mud Runner challenge on 28th June in aid of St Richard’s Hospice. The team tackled the Oblivion Mud Runner course, a muddy 10km/ 6 mile run around the Eastnor Castle Estate near Malvern, interspersed at regular intervals by challenging obstacles.

The team, who are used to work closely together in the office, made good use of their team cohesion as well as their physical stamina and endurance to successfully navigate the uncompromising course designed to test the limits of off-road vehicles.

The team chose St Richard’s Hospice as the charity they wanted to support as many have family connections with the hospice, and know people who have been cared for or have worked at the hospice.

John Meehan, Director of Worcester Commercial office, Natwest, said; “We were delighted to be able to support such a vital charity to the local community and are aiming to take part in another event next year.”
