Tough Mudder no obstacle as Keebles team raises £800 for St Luke’s Hospice

Yorkshire law firm Keebles LLP has raised 800 for St Luke’s Hospice Sheffield by completing national endurance challenge, Tough Mudder.

The ten-person team trained for 12 weeks to tackle the gruelling 10-mile course in Eden, Skipton in order to raise the funds to donate to the hospice.

Keebles brought together members from each of their three offices in Sheffield, Doncaster and Leeds, ranging from Paralegal to Partner. The team also welcomed additions from PM Legal Services and their Account Manager from PR and creative agency, HR Media.

The course is notoriously difficult, consisting of 25 obstacles ranging from a 10’ 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 money donated will go towards the charity’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.”
