It’s looking like another action-packed year for fundraising with both our staff and challenge teams already signed up to the following sporting events and fear-defying quests, which ultimately show what they’re made of…half-human, half-amazing (at least, we think so) while raising awareness for a number of great charities:
Virgin Money London Marathon
Parkeray’s Super Six: Chris Marshall, Adrian Grint, Ben Wills, Matthew Gascoigne, Gary Richardson and Toby Milsom completed the mega 26-mile London Marathon run for charities Children with Cancer and Coram on 22 April. The lads made their way around the circuit within minutes of each other – well done!
Abseiling St Thomas’ Tower
Alex Soltynski will head up our fearless team of daredevils: Andy Greiner, Ben Carpenter, Harrison McCulloch and Shantel Lewis, as they prepare to abseil down a 469ft (143m) building on International Nurses Day to raise funds and awareness for Guy’s St Thomas’ & Evelina Hospitals on 11 May. With a fundraising target of £1,500, this quest is not one for the faint-hearted.

2018 Prudential Ride100 Surrey
Never missing an opportunity to show off their legs in lycra, our cycling team have dusted the winter cobwebs off their bicycles and started training for Prudential Ride100. This time around, Adrian Grint and Geoff Watson will be joined on the pedals by Alex Soltynski, as she takes up a record number of charitable challenges for the year.
Parkeray Challenge Team – Snowden and Scafell Pike
This September, the Parkeray Challenge team will take part in not one, but two mountain climbs to raise funds and awareness for the Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity and Living Heart Peru Charity. The team will attempt to climb Scafell Pike and Snowden – two of the highest mountains in England & Wales in another time and endurance challenging quest over three days.
