I'm a Travel Agent, Get Me Out Of Here!
A team from Hays Travel headed for the great outdoors to raise money for Naomi House & Jacksplace.
Zara, Amy, Chris, Audrey and Jordan set off on a 20 mile trek through the New Forest before building a shelter and bedding down on the forest floor for the night.
They even rationed themselves to rice and beans!
In the run up to the challenge, their Fordingbridge and Winchester stores held bake sales to help fundraise.
In total, they have raised £370 for our hospices! You can still sponsor them on their JustGiving page.
Fordingbridge Branch Manager, Zara Street said:
We are all so proud of our efforts that we all put in to completing this challenge as a team, we put ourselves out of our comfort zones to raise as much money as we could for this incredible charity and its fantastic to be able to donate £370. Although the event was very challenging it was a fantastic opportunity to work together as a team whilst raising the vital funds and we have already been discussing a similar event next year!
Corporate Fundraiser for Naomi House & Jacksplace, Jill McDonagh added:
I'm really impressed with the effort Hays Travel went to, to raise money for us! The team really thought about the challenge and wanted it to be as authentic and close to the real thing as possible and their efforts really paid off! The money they have raised will help us continue to fund our vital service to hundreds of life-limited and life-threatened children, young people and their families from across central southern England.
