Adderstone Foundation sponsored the Warrior Beach Assault Challenge again in March 2015 raising money for ex-service personnel. Fitness fanatics braved the challenging 10k assault course which took place at Whitley Bay seafront.
Many participants took part in the challenge whilst raising funds for a new veterans' centre being refurbished in Sunderland by the Adderstone Foundation in conjunction with Thirteen Care and Support.
The project, which aims to help those leaving the services cope with a return to civilian life, provides support for the many veterans coping with problems ranging from money issues to a breakdown in family relationships.
As charity sponsor of the event, all the money raised through Adderstone Foundation for Thirteen Care and Support was allocated directly to providing the new veterans’ centre in Sunderland.
Ian Baggett, Trustee of Adderstone Foundation said: “The work that Thirteen Care and Support carry out with ex-military personnel really does change lives. We knew immediately that we wanted to support the efforts to create and open a new veterans’ centre in the North East."
Phil Thompson, Partnership and Innovation Manager at Thirteen Care and Support said: “This new centre being planned for Sunderland will be a vital resource, providing a secure environment for ex-service personnel to receive the support and guidance they need to overcome issues and regain control of their lives.”
Liam Tickle, Director of Tecal, Adderstone Group's electrical specalists, who took on the assault course said: “I found the course a real challenge, I was running in and out of the sea, crawling through mud and climbling hay bails. It was good fun and the whole course was a test of strength and fitness. I would certainly do it again because the money raised went to such a great cause.”
