Employees from garden furniture, grow your own and decorative garden structure specialist, Zest joined colleagues from the parent company, the P&A Group to complete the gruelling Tough Mudder challenge at Cholmondeley Castle. The team of six were raising money for the British Heart Foundation, Zest’s charity of the year for 2022.
Despite heavy rain saturating the ground in the week running up to the event, six teams started and completed the 10K course together. Commenting after the event, Zest’s Digital Marketing Manager, Thomas Jones said:
“It was fantastic to complete an amazing 10k challenge and it was such a good feeling to finish knowing that we’d raised more money for the British Heart Foundation.”
The British Heart Foundation helps and supports people living with heart and circulatory diseases and the 10k Tough Mudder challenge is one of many events that employees have completed this year. Zest has already smashed its annual £10,000 fundraising target and is determined to raise even more money for the BHF. More events are planned before the end of the year including an exercise bike challenge, a movie night and raffles, with prizes kindly donated by employees.
Over the last 11 years, Zest and P&A employees have raised more than £130,000 for a variety of charities including Macmillan Cancer Support, Hope House and Tŷ Gobaith Children’s Hospices, Cancer Research UK, Action for Children, Alzheimer’s Society, Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and Meningitis Now.
