Bear Grylls meets Barchy Bear

Congratulations and very well done the brave Barchester Team that successfully completed the first ever Bear Grylls 10k Survival Race in North London on 3rd October raising money for Barchester’s Charitable Foundation.  So far the team has raised an amazing £500 plus Gift Aid for Barchester’s Charitable Foundation, and their fundraising will be matched pound for pound by the Barchester Company.


In the morning, the team met at local Barchester home Southgate Beaumont for a healthy breakfast, and some last minute tips and encouragement by staff and residents. The team then travelled over to Trent Park for the Survival Race.


The team really stood out from the crowd in their bright orange Barchy Bear t-shirts and managed to stay together to complete the whole challenge.


As expected it was a very tough challenge and the team – including Barchy Bear - was congratulated by Bear Grylls himself after reaching the finishing line.


A massive thank you and very well done to Richard, Yonike, Lawrence, Samantha, Jose and Paul – please show your support on Virgin Money Giving.
