A Christmas day swim
Even on Christmas morning, our team will embrace a challenge for a good cause. This Christmas, Sally (on the right) took the plunge into Bournemouth's turbulent tides alongside her family as part of Macmillan Caring Locally's White Christmas Dip, raising money for a new cancer care ward in Christchurch. It was a bright sunny morning as Sally joined almost 1,200 people - donned in stylish fancy dress of course! Take a look at their outfits here... looking good guys!
A few mountains to climb
After tackling the Humber Estuary Swim, Andy's next charity fundraiser involved scaling the Welsh Three Peaks and this time, he was joined by Louis. Despite it being a miserable day, the pair successfully conquered the epic climbs, raising money for their chosen causes - Central Beacons Mountain Rescue for Louis and Andys Mans Club (a Hull-based men's mental health charity) for Andy. We're looking forward to seeing what the next challenge will be. Congratulations guys!
Swimming to success
Completing his first charity fundraiser for this year, Andy took on a tough 2-mile swim across the Humber Estuary - one of the most unpredictable stretches of water in the world. Living close by, Andy’s only too aware of the hard work and dedication that the Humber Rescue team provide, inspiring him to get involved and wanting to give something back. Whilst the extremely strong currents created an extra challenge on the day, he looks as fresh as a daisy coming out the other side. Well done Andy, what a great cause!
A tough challenge for charity
Always willing to get stuck in, Neil Rose took on the infamous Tough Mudder obstacle course in August, in memory of a dear colleague. Raising money for CALM, the 11-mile course, with 25 obstacles, put him through his paces. But as you can see, he came out smiling. A fun event, and all for a good cause. Well done Neil.
And Neil wasn't the only Bistech team member to tackle the course. After overcoming a double hip and spine surgery, Scott Hutchings also conquered Tough Mudder in support of his chosen charity, LEAF - Leukaemia Educating and Fundraising. Not letting his previous injuries get in the way, Scott is planning to repeat it all next year. We can't wait to see you take on the challenge again, Scott.
Going the extra mile
Our team love a challenge. And avid cyclist, Scott Delahunty, is a perfect example. Cycling the length of the UK, alongside scaling the three national peaks (Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis), Scott completed the two-week challenge all in aid of cancer research and support. Covering over 100 miles a day, it really was an impressive feat. Massive congratulations Scott.
A marathon success
In April this year, keen runner, Jonathan Kirkham, took on the London Marathon, raising funds for his chosen charity, MacMillan Cancer Support. After months of demanding training, the hard work paid off and he made it look a breeze. Congratulations Jon, an amazing achievement for a deserving cause.
