Westerman Team tackle the Men’s Health Challenge for Charity
Westerman Homes recently entered their ‘Westermen’ team into the Men’s Health Survival of the Fittest Challenge in Nottingham
Westerman Homes’ Site Manager Andy Maudsley, along with team members Tim Hancock, Jake Barratt, Neil Wakelam and Chris Robey, tackled the enduring race in October.
Westerman Do It For Charity…
Their chosen charity was a local one, APTCOO (A Place To Call Our Own,) based in Mansfield. The charity works to improve the quality of life for families with disabled and/or children with special educational needs.
Andy, who is currently Site Manager at Sovereign Gardens, Selston, said “APTCOO were chosen because of the hard work and commitment to their service users, and when we visited the offices we were blown away by the work that they do.”
The survival challenge is an urban assault course of around 10k that spans landmarks in the city, with mud baths, and slippery walls amongst other obstacles.
Starting life as a throw away comment after last year’s Christmas lunch, Andy and the team worked and trained hard, there were some excellent personal times achieved, but the team decided they would cross the line together and did this in well under the 2 hours time that they had set themselves. Andy say’s he now has the bug and is in the process of entering two more challenges next year.
At the time of this going live the total amount raised for the charity stood at just under £1,200.00
