Staff at Europe’s leading digital video solutions provider, Garland Partners, are used to dealing with challenges and solving problems. They don’t only demonstrate that in their work, but also through their continued dedication to supporting local charity, the Mary Ann Evans Hospice.
A team of 10 brave Garland men and women took part in ‘Totally Wiped Out’ in Nottingham on 15th July 2017, raising an amazing £3,070, including a generous £1000 worth of match funding from Garland Partners.
In this obstacle course of king-sized games, the team faced a series of hilarious challenges, including a punch wall, jumping over a huge sweeping arm, whizzing down a huge foam filled inflatable slide and jumping across giant red balls — all against 14 other teams. The team jumped, slid, punched, spun, fell off, got back on again, fell off, got back on again, and crawled their way to fourth place!
Garland Partners Managing Director, Malcolm Harland, said “Every sore muscle and bruise that showed up in the days after were worth it for this great cause who provide much needed support and care for those living with a life-limiting illness in the area. We had an amazing time!”
This isn’t the only fundraising the team at Garland have undertaken for the Mary Ann Evans Hospice. In July 2015 staff members climbed Cadair Idris, raising a wonderful £2,303.11 for the hospice, they’ve held a Krispy Kreme fundraising day and their regular tuck shops and dress down days are all in aid of the hospice. Their continued support is fantastic!
Natalie Smith, Fundraiser at the Mary Ann Evans Hospice, said “We’re so glad the team had a great time getting ‘Totally Wiped Out’ in aid of the hospice. Their continued support and dedication to helping a local good cause is inspirational and we’re looking forward to hearing all about their next challenge!”
A big thank you also goes to Dawn Williams, of ‘Go Print’ in Nuneaton, who ensured the team looked fantastic in their challenge t-shirts!
