Pierce employees sweat mud and tears for local charities

Eight employees from Pierce Chartered Accountants have raised over £1,500 for local charities after conquering the ultimate obstacle course, Tough Mudder.

The team, who completed the 10 mile course in 4 ½ hours, are still accepting sponsorships for two charities: Legacy Rainbow House in Ormskirk, who increase the level of independence for people with disabilities, and Theo’s Warriors, supporting six-year-old Theo Power from Blackburn who has an aggressive form of childhood cancer.

Jonathan Mackie, Fred Green, Elizabeth Stebbings, Daniel Burrows, Lewis Withnell, Charles Hopkinson, Laura Waddington, and Usama Sarwar successfully finished the course in Skipton, designed by British Special Forces.

Team leader Jonathan Mackie, said: “I’m proud of the whole team, not just for overcoming the tough challenge but for also raising so much money for these two great charities.

“The donated money will really help young people with serious illnesses and their families and we’re hoping that local people and the business community can help increase the amount of funds we can give to our chosen charities.”
