The team smashed the original fundraising target of £750 (which was increased to £1,000) and the fundraising then exceeded the new fundraising target at a total of £1,430.

The Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice helps to care for children and young adults with life shortening illnesses in their homes and at the hospice. The charity needs to raise £11,000 every day to keep their doors open.

A team of 14 team members at TLW took part in a mileage challenge during September. The team completed an impressive 1,038 miles. The challenge called “Going The Extra Mile” meant the team had to walk, run, swim, cycle or kayak throughout the month. Individually the team completed the following mileage:-

  • TLW’s Daniel Hughes, Business Development Manager cycled and walked 110 miles – including a 10 mile hike to the top of Helvellyn in Ullswater!
  • Customer Service and Account Manager Claire Dymyd walked 16 miles – some of her mileage was even on her honeymoon!
