On behalf of The Silkworth Charity Group I would like to extend my sincere thanks and appreciation to all those who made the annual Silkworth Extreme Team Challenge such a fantastic success for the second year running.
The purpose of the event is to raise funds for our work and also to raise the profile of Silkworth Charity Group in its vital work rebuilding the lives, families and relationships devastated by substance misuse.
The De La Salle / Gradebusters team which was led by Paul Livesey won the challenge for the second year in a row, followed by Where’s Clifford which was led by Jonathan Williams and The Girls and Others in third place which was led by Lucy Fowler.
A total of 18 teams competed in this years event with a total of 172 competitors who between them raised a total amount of £12,500. These funds will be used to support the Charity Groups Community Day Programme that was launched in October 2015. A team from Bedell Group led by Sarah Dale won the prize for raising the most team sponsorship of £1662.80.
We are extremely grateful to Kazz Padidar of Wild Adventures, who designed the course and led the event, for his dedication and enthusiastic support for our charity.
I would also like to extend my thanks to Jeralie Pallot of Rowlands Recruitment who kindly sponsored this years event as the main sponsor. Thanks must also go to the Channel Island Coop, Easenmyne and Boots for sponsoring the water that was made available on the day.
Appreciation is due to Paula Thelwell, Carol Rafferty and the 38 marshalls that all gave up their time to make sure the event went smoothly. We are also grateful to the Greve de Lecq Boat Owners Association, Jono’s Watersports and absolute adventures for providing equipment.
