On 3rd September Lucy Robinson, Partner from Fine & Country Banbury, joined 4,000 other ‘wolves’ to take part in the Wolf Run. Lucy ran, climbed and swam through mud and obstacles across 10kms at Welsh Road Farm in Offchurch, just outside Leamington Spa.
Lucy says, “There were so many different obstacles, including mud rivers, hay bales and the dreaded A-frame. I was running on my own, but this didn’t matter because everyone helped each other. The rivers were so cold that it took my breath away, so when I was climbing out I was struggling to lift myself onto the bank. Then another pack came along, grabbed all my limbs and heaved me out the river with what felt like mud bricks attached to my trainers.”
So far, Lucy has raised £440 and rising for Helping Hands, a local community project to support the homeless and the most vulnerable in the Leamington, Warwick and Kenilworth areas. The donations will be used to help open their new café which will be run by volunteers and used to provide essential work experience and confidence-building opportunities.
Leanne Kirkman, Manager of Helping Hand Community Project said, “We are so grateful to Fine & Country for holding another fundraiser to support us. We are looking forward to opening our new café in a few months and will use the donations from Lucy’s Wolf Run and the Golf Day in June to buy necessities including, plates, cutlery and a dishwasher.”
