The Dunbia Agri Team and Friends Charity Challenge which took place from the 1st of September to the 1st of November has raised over £10,000 for Ronald McDonald House Charity (RMHC), Farming Community Network (FCN) and Swansea Bay Neonatal Unit.
The team compromising of Dunbia colleagues and some of our retail counterparts from Sainsbury’s, McDonald’s, ASDA and the Co-op made a combined effort to travel 4,052 miles through any physical activity possible which doesn’t include an engine… that’s the same distance as travelling around to all Dawn Meats and Dunbia sites TWICE.
Over the two-month period, the team made up the miles by swimming, running, hiking, walking, cycling and herding sheep! Some hiked over the Shropshire Hills, some hiked over the Greensand Way in the South East, some swam parts of the coastline of Ireland and some even went to Portugal to bask in the glorious weather whilst simultaneously riding a bike.
Everyone had a fantastic attitude to completing the challenge and knowing that the money raised was going to exceptional causes, made all the puffing and panting even more bearable.
The prize for the biggest blister went to Francesca Boyce from ASDA for the many miles back and forth to the calf shed in her wellies chasing collies and kelpies along the way!
Congratulations to everyone who took part and thank you to everyone who donated.
