Muddy Marketers Raise £1320 for Now! Charity
Date: 13 October 2016
We raised £1320 for the Now! Charity Group in a major muddy teamwork challenge to help our local East Sussex community.
The Pearce Marketing & Friends team took on the Tough Mudder event near Crawley at the end of September. We completed an 11 mile course with 21 epic obstacles including the aptly named Kiss the Mud, King of the Swingers, Arctic Enema, The Blockness Monster and Electroshock Therapy.
Emma Pearce, MD said “Special thanks go to everyone who donated, as well as Cale Sinfield from the RSE Group and Sarah Hinks who joined our team. It was a unique event that made you face your fears, enjoy enormous camaraderie and embrace the mud!”
She added “We wanted to fundraise for our local community and The Now! Charity Group is perfect because it supports over 35,000 people in East Sussex every year. It’s also a great resource for local businesses to donate and buy office furniture.”
The charity’s main activities are:
- Training Now! – a service that helps those in need with free workshops and courses to build confidence and skills to get into work in Hailsham and Eastbourne
- Furniture Now! – offering everyone very low cost new, second-hand and refurbished home and office furniture. There are stores in Hailsham, Eastbourne and Lewes giving special extra low prices for those receiving benefits, but everyone is welcome and gets great value!
Petrina Mayson, Chief Executive of Now! Charity, commented “This was a very daring fundraising exercise – the Pearce Marketing team are quite mad! We are so grateful for their efforts and glad everyone survived.”
Despite the cuts, significant bruises and days of aching – we really enjoyed the challenge and are thrilled with our fundraising total of £1320. There’s even talk of doing it all again next year!
