Team BV have undertaken their longest commute to work, which took in over 300 miles via current and previous office bases from Sheffield – Barnsley – Blackburn – Chester – Stockport – Derby – Sheffield.
Over the course of four days, the team struggled through all weather conditions but were ably assisted throughout with endless supplies of energy gels, bananas and sweets. Physio was provided in Northwich and Matlock kindly donated by Northwich RUFC and Katie Bell Physiotherapy and Wellness.
Fundraising was undertaken on behalf of The Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA), in memory of our friend and former colleague, Rodger Vickers. Rodger was diagnosed with the disease in late 2015 and he faced the illness with impeccable dignity and good humour.
Following completion of the challenge, Brownill Vickers were placed in the top 1% of fundraisers on Just Giving within June 2018, which everyone is extremely proud of.
