We are very proud of our team here at Aquatrust who have set their sights high to fundraise for Hollybank Trust Mirfield.
On Saturday 19th May 2018 they set off as a team to tackle ‘Gung-Ho’ at Temple Newsham, Leeds. It was a very hot day however they all successfully completed the 5K course of huge inflatable obstacles.
It was then onto the next challenge and on Sunday 24th June, a team of 7 from Aquatrust bravely took to the skies and experienced the thrill of jumping from a plane at 15,000 feet at Skydive Hibaldstow. All had never done anything like this before and there were a lot of nerves and apprehension leading up to and on the day. They were however all determined to complete the challenge, feeling the biggest push was from the amount they were raising and the support they had received for such a worthy charity as Hollybank Trust.
Hollybank Trust offers quality of life for life to over 100 children and adults with profound physical and learning difficulties.
With these two events alone Aquatrust have so far raised over £3500 for the trust. Aquatrust Managing Director Gary Russell said “I am extremely proud of all the team at Aquatrust who have taken part in these events. I am also very grateful to all those who have supported us in our fundraising efforts. Aquatrust are also commited to supporting more events in the future”
