Rugby bankers go through muddy hell to fund flying doctors

Maisie Jeynes 12th Sep, 2017

A ‘WOLF pack’ from a local bank has raised an impressive £300 for Wawickshire’s life-saving flying doctors by taking on a muddy endurance run.

Partners and customers from the Rugby branch of TSB took part in the 10K Wolf Run challenge at Welsh Road Farm near Leamington.

The bank chose the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance as its local charity partner of the year.

The team completed the 10k ran, climbed, jumped, waded, crawled and swam across open ground, woodland and lakes – facing obstacles and thick mud along the way.

Bank manager Levi Probert said: “We had a fantastic but extremely tiring day completing the Wolf Run. Our ‘wolf pack’ worked together all the way through to help each other over the finish line.

“The Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance is a vital part of our local community and we’re really proud to have them as our partner for 2017-18.”

The bank is aiming to raise £1,750 over the course of the year, which covers the average cost of a helicopter every time it takes to the skies on a rescue mission.
