Mud run fundraiser to support National Star
Staff from Speller Metcalfe are proving they are not afraid to get dirty to support National Star.
Eight staff members are taking part in the Eastnor Castle Mud Bath on October 9. They hope to raise £300 for National Star’s appeal to create needed specialist facilities at the charity’s Ullenwood campus.
Speller Metcalfe, based in Worcestershire, is building the new £6 million development which is due to be completed in the summer of 2023.
Staff taking part in the fundraiser include the Quality Surveyor, Estimator, Operations Director, Divisional Director, Commercial Manager, Site Manager, Creative Lead and a forklift driver. Friends and family will also be joining the Speller Metcalfe team.
“A fundamental value of Speller Metcalfe is that we support – and most importantly – enable the communities we work in,” says Bill Cave, Operations Director at Speller Metcalfe, who is taking part in the event.
“As a local company, National Star is a charity that is very close to our hearts, and with some keen runners at Speller Metcalfe we hope our fundraising can make a positive difference in some small way to the outstanding work they do.”
Deputy Chief Executive Peter Horne said the charity was delighted to learn that Speller Metcalfe staff are raising money for National Star.
“We have worked with Speller Metcalfe on several projects as they understand the ethos of the charity and the young people we support,” said Mr Horne.
“I wish the team the best of luck and thank them for supporting us. We have already raised a significant amount of money towards our £1.5 million public appeal for the Building a Brighter Future appeal and every pound makes a difference.”
The new state-of-the-art residence to be built at Ullenwood will provide specially adapted accommodation for young people with disabilities that fully meets their complex needs and provides stimulating spaces to live, learn and relax.
