Hornchurch firm take on military assault challenge

A hardcore team from a Hornchurch construction firm turned military action heroes for the day to raise more than £2,500.

Ten members of Staff from NC Construction took part in an adrenalin-fuelled military assault course challenge in Surrey.

And on Tuesday staff visited the charity to hand over the money raised from their fabulous efforts - which was five times more than their original target of £500!    

"It was a great day out and we had so much fun," said Kerrie Coulson, Business Manager with the firm, which is one of the charity's corporate partners.    

Saint Francis Hospice is a local charity which we have had personal experience with, so we know what amazing work it does in the community!     

"We are really gratefulGetting into a truck to all our friends, families, sub-contractors, clients and suppliers for making a donation and helping us to raise so much money."    

 Last year NC Construction attended the hospice's Business Alliance Group meeting, donated hampers to the fundraising team at Christmas and have more plans in the pipeline!     

Mike Allen, Corporate Partnerships Manager, said, "This is an outstanding example of NC Construction's commitment to helping the hospice continue to provide its specialist end of life care and support services to the community.

"Not only did they raise a significant sum of money for the hospice, they gave up a day's work to take part in the challenge."
