Minnie and her friends (Sam Kossar, Sareena Ali, Yassar, Kully Lush, Riz, Kay Kaur & Mannie) took part in the 10K super hero run in Regent Park, London Sunday raising money for Epilepsy Research UK all together the group raised £1506.25 for the charity and did it in memory of their close friend, Asif who sadly passed away on the 21st April this year who had suffered with epilepsy and was the cause of his passing.
The group had so much fun during their run especially when the route took them past London Zoo. They all finished in a 1 hour and 5 minutes which Minnie herself is chuffed about as she had a pulled muscle injury at the 4k mark.

Well Done guys!
Over the weekend Natasha who is in our management support team and her friend Jodie took part in the Midlands Tough Mudder Half on Saturday to raise money for the Mind, the Mental Health Charity. In total they raised £1,197.60 for the charity. As part of their fundraising they also hosted a charity night at a local social club with local band Undercover playing.
Tough Mudder was an obstacle course that was just over 5 miles long with 14 obstacles that were based on team work and results in getting very muddy! It took the pair two hours to complete the course in Belvoir Castle, Grantham.
Next year they are going to look at doing it again to raise even more money for Mind after smashing their original target of £300! If you would like to donate still you can do on www.justgiving.com/tashaandjodie
