Hurrah! Yes there was an awful lot of mud, and sweat (and maybe even a few tears!) when over 50 of us finished the legendary Tough Mudder Yorkshire challenge, but it was worth it: we have smashed our target and, to date have raised a stonking £12,793 for our chosen charity; Martin House Children’s Hospice.

“Everyone at Kings Security is enormously proud of those who took up the challenge,” said our CEO, Anthony King, (who led the team through the 12 mile course with a gruelling 28 obstacles to also tackle). “We chose Martin House Children’s Hospice as our official charity four years ago because of its wonderful work with amazing kids and their families.
“As a parent, I can’t even bring myself to imagine the pain of watching your beloved child suffer. The greatest blessings in life are for you, and your loved ones, to enjoy good health whilst treasuring all your special moments together. To have that torn from you is too harrowing to contemplate, so anything we can do to help those in such terrible situations is its own reward.”
John Haigh, of Martin House Children’s Hospice, added: “We are enormously grateful to everyone at Kings for their continued support over several years. Tough Mudder looked pretty daunting, so to have more than 50 Kings people take the time and trouble to complete the course and get sponsorship for it is absolutely fantastic. Our thanks to them all for one of our biggest corporate contributions of the year.”
Well done to all the participants and a massive thank you to everyone who has supported and sponsored the team for such a worthy cause.
