In honour of turning 25 this year, Arena Group have set the challenge of raising £25,000 to support and make a difference for 3 well deserving charities.
The challenge has been set to hit the target within 12 months, so Arena employees are going above and beyond to reach it. All money raised will be split equally between East Lancashire Hospice, Rotherham Hospice and Wakefield Hospice to use the funds towards making a difference to the lives of many people.
So far the many activities to raise money have ranged from raffles and bake sales, to family fun days and sky diving. However more recently, Arena took on the challenge of Tough Mudder.
A brave team of 10 faced 20 obstacles over 10 miles. They pulled together through the mud and electric shocks with the determination to succeed for a great cause.
Despite a few bruises and aching muscles the next day, the team did a fantastic job of raising sponsorship towards the grand total.
All of these efforts so far has contributed to a fantastic total of £21,814! However, the target hasn’t been met yet. Still to come, there is a rock climbing challenge, a football tournament and even the creation of a calendar up for sale with some of the Arena team as you’ve never seen them before!
