You could say the eSpares team is always game for a challenge. You could also say we’re gluttons for punishment. Either way, a group of us have decided to take on the world’s longest obstacle course, Gung-Ho, a 5k gruelling stretch of inflatable challenges in aid of our chosen charity, John Taylor Hospice. We’ve dusted off our exercise gear and ditched the pub in favour of some hardcore training for this extremely worthy cause.
Who Are John Taylor Hospice?
John Taylor Hospice is a charity very close to our hearts; the first-class end of life care they provide to the terminally ill is truly inspiring. They don’t just provide care to residents but also visit those who wish to stay at home so that they can spend their last weeks in comfort and with dignity.
The hospice also provides counselling for relatives and runs community workshops to raise awareness of life-threatening diseases. Providing their invaluable services costs John Taylor Hospice a whopping £14000 a day so they rely on kind donations to maintain them. You can find out more about the hospice on their website.
If you feel like doing your good deed of the day we would be so grateful for any donation you can spare. You can donate to the hospice by texting GHJT 56 to 70070 or via our JustGiving page. We aim to raise at least £550, but ever the optimists we’re hoping to smash our target! You can keep tabs on JustGiving to check back on our fundraising progress.
Any of our customers out there also putting themselves through their paces on the Gung-Ho course? We’d love to hear about it! Ditto if you have any obstacle course or endurance advice – let us know in the comments!
