Legacy Hotels and Resorts raise £3,700 for displaced children in Syria

Seven intrepid staff from hotel management company, Legacy Hotels and Resorts, completed the Mud Runner Classic at Eastnor Caste in Herefordshire to reach their fundraising target towards an appeal to help one million children affected by the crisis in Syria.

Chief Executive Andy Townsend; MD Jim Gordon; Group Operations Director Kevin Skeet; Human Resources Director Helen Parrett; and Commercial Director David Biesok along with Teena Giles-Moore, PA to the Chief Executive and MD; and Robbie Kennedy, Group Revenue and Distribution Assistant, completed the 12.5km course.

Overcoming different tests of strength, endurance and co-ordination over various obstacles while jumping, swimming or crawling in the Mud Runner meant Team Legacy raised £3,700 with gift aid for the Save the Children fund to help one million children who have been displaced by the Syrian crisis.

Gordon, who had the advantage of having done the Mud Runner last year, said he was proud of all the team for finishing a punishing assault course in the mud. “Nothing quite prepares you for trying to run or jump through lots and lots of mud – but, in a bizarre way, it is quite good fun,” he said.

“The Mud Runner took us varying times to finish from two-and-a-half hours to three-and-a-half hours but we all completed the course and, more importantly, raised funds for a worthwhile cause.”
