Concrete’s young people will enjoy a Christmas dinner this year thanks to Tough Mudder fundraising

Concrete’s young people will enjoy a Christmas dinner this year thanks to Tough Mudder fundraising

Earlier this year, Revival’s Head of Support and Wellbeing, Julie, ran a 10k Tough Mudder mud run to raise money for our Young Person’s Service.

Julie, who previously worked for our Cheshire East team, wanted to support our younger customers this Christmas.

She raised over £200 which means that the Young Person’s Service team can purchase food, including Christmas dinners, for customers to enjoy this year.

Julie said that her Tough Mudder was ‘a challenge’ – but she was keen to complete it to raise money for a good cause. The 10k mud run involved 20 obstacles including crawling under nets, climbing and wading through freezing cold water.

“Having worked for Concrete previously, I knew that their customers have been through a lot,” explained Julie.

“Christmas can be a difficult and lonely time for many people – that includes young people. I wanted to raise enough money to cover something that they could look forward to.

“I thought it would be great for them to all come together to have a lovely meal and enjoy eachother’s company during the festive period.”

Young Person’s Service Manager, Anna, said that Julie’s fundraising will mean a lot to the young people her team supports. They will all have a hot Christmas dinner and lots of treats over the festive period.  

“Being able to support our young people with food at Christmas means a lot,” said Anna.

“Lots of people are struggling with rising costs right now so it means that we can reduce those worries that they might have had about being able to afford things over the festive period.

“It also means that we can bring our young people together as a community and help them share meals and moments with others.”

Julie works for Revival, home support and repairs specialists, who are also part of the Honeycomb Group family.

Anna added: “We’re so grateful to Julie and just want to say a huge, huge thank you. Being supported by colleagues across Honeycomb Group is amazing.

“When it comes to Christmas, we do tend to worry about how we can treat our customers to something special. For young people in particular we really wanted this to be an enjoyable time where they can have fun and Julie has really helped us to do that.

“The young people that we support aren’t just Concrete’s young people – they are the young people of our community. Fundraising like this shows how we can work together as a community to support them and really make a difference.”
