READY FOR A CHALLENGE : SUPPORTING GREAT ORMOND STREET HOSPITAL

Andrea Moss, a secretary in the Burgoynes London office, wanted to say thank you for the great work the hospital had done treating and monitoring her young son over the past 4 years. What better way than fundraising! On May 16th 2015 she took part in a 14km Nuclear Race with her YMCA group in order to raise funds for the hospital. A Nuclear race is a tough gritty obstacle race over varied, undulating terrain with man-made obstacles and lots of mud.
Andrea finished the race in just under 4 hours, a fantastic result that needed 6 months of regular training. She raised nearly £1200 including £500 donated by Burgoynes as part of its match funding promise for charitable causes.
Well done Andrea!
