A nine-strong team from The Right Fuelcard Company (TRFC) has braved the UK’s toughest 12K to bolster funds by more than £1,150 for Leeds Children’s Charity.The team took on twelve kilometres of muddy track, 30 punishing obstacles, 10 tons of ice, and 100 tons of mud to complete the Total Warrior Race at Bramham Park in 2 hours and 28 minutes.
A champion of putting something back into its local communities, the funds raised by TRFC - ranked 34 in the Sunday Times Best 100 Small Companies to Work For in 2016 - will help Leeds Children’s Charity to provide free seaside holidays for over 400 disadvantaged children every year.
Said business director, Adam Walsh: “The course included electric shocks, ice-cold water, and extremely challenging obstacles aptly named Claustrophobe and Death Valley. We’re delighted to support Leeds Children’s Charity, which boosts the quality of life by taking children who suffer from poverty, neglect, abuse, illness or learning difficulties on a seaside summer holiday at no cost to them or their family.”
Commented Dave Norman MBE, director at Leeds Children’s Charity: “We appreciate Adam and the team undergoing such a gruelling challenge to support our work. Without the assistance we receive from businesses like The Right Fuelcard Company and individuals we would struggle to give so many children a special and memorable break to play on the beach, make new friends, and enjoy respite from the difficulties they face at home.”
TRFC - an independent distributor of Shell, Keyfuels, UK Fuels and Esso fuel cards to UK businesses - is marking unprecedented growth since launching in 2011. The 59-strong business operates out of headquarters in Hunslet and offices in Harrogate and York.
