Keebles overcomes Tough Mudder to raise £800 for St. Luke’s Hospice

Keebles has raised £800 for St. Luke’s Hospice Sheffield by completing national endurance challenge Tough Mudder.

A 10-person team from the firm trained for 12 weeks to tackle the 10-mile course in Eden, Skipton, in order to raise the funds to donate to the hospice.

Keebles brought together members from each of its offices in Sheffield, Doncaster and Leeds, ranging from paralegal to partner. The team also welcomed additions from PM Legal Services and its account manager from PR and creative agency HR Media.

The Tough Mudder course consists of 25 obstacles, including a 10 foot wall, an arctic ice pool and multiple obstacles designed to push participants outside of their comfort zone with small spaces and heights.

Keebles marketing manager and Tough Mudder team leader Simon Gorman said: “As a firm we are committed to supporting many local charities and St Luke’s is an organisation which is at the heart of our community.”

“The nature of the Tough Mudder challenge is one of teamwork and comradery and it’s brilliant to bring together partners, solicitors and trainees from all departments within the firm.”

The £800 donated will go towards St. Luke’s Hospice’s work in offering palliative care and support to terminally ill adults and their families in Sheffield.

Jack Kidder, corporate fundraising manager at St. Luke’s, said: “We’re very grateful to the Keebles team for their hard work on the course and all their efforts in raising funds for the hospice.”

“Most of our funding comes from public donations, so any money raised to support St. Luke’s will go an extremely long way in allowing us to continue helping those who need it.”
