ADAM FARRELL, director of Fine & Country Brighton and Hove will run 10 miles and tackle more than 20 different obstacles to raise money for two local homeless charities.

Tough Mudder is a fantastic and unique event taking place across the UK. Known for its boggy course and innovative obstacles, Adam chose this as the perfect event to raise money for a cause dear to his heart.

Fine & Country Brighton and Hove has supported The Clock Tower Sanctuary for a number of years through donations and fundraisers. Both The Clock Tower Sanctuary and Justlife Foundation received funding from The Fine & Country Foundation’s spring grant programme in May 2018. Since then, Fine & Country have maintained their relationship with these charities.

Adam said: “Training is going really well so far. There are lots of great running routes in Brighton and Hove, but I am struggling to find somewhere to train for the obstacles. I tried using the monkey bars in the playground, but unsurprisingly I am a little too tall for them.

“I am most looking forward to the Funk Monkey obstacle. It is a unique take on the monkey bars: wheels move and you have to swing yourself along or risk falling into a pool of mud.

“However, I am nervous about the Artic Enema. The name is as pleasant as it sounds. You plunge into a freezing pool of muddy water and your limbs seize up, so getting out is often a slow process.

“I am delighted to be taking part in the challenge to support our local community through The Fine & Country Foundation. It will make every slip in the mud and freezing pool of water worthwhile. Thank you to everyone who has supported me so far. With your help, I can reach my £500 fundraising target.”

Natalia Borg, Development Manager for The Clock Tower Sanctuary said: “We are chuffed that Adam has chosen to support our work with Brighton’s young and homeless in his muddy challenge! The Clock Tower Sanctuary works closely with JustLife, ensuring that some of the most vulnerable, hidden, young people in our city have access to vital services. Together, we provided homeless young people with the practical and emotional support to move on from a life on the streets and towards the bright future they deserve and want. £250 will provide 12 young people with a new pair of shoes for an outfit for a job interview or college interview.”

Simon Gale, Operations and Hub Manager for Justlife Foundation said: “We are delighted to hear that Adam is raising money for the homeless people we support in Brighton and Hove who are moving into emergency accommodation. £250 makes a big difference. This will fund an extra five people to receive a bespoke Move-In pack. These people often have nothing except the clothes they are wearing when they are placed by the local authority. The pack consists of toiletries, cooking utensils, a kettle, a radio alarm clock and much more to make a traumatic experience slightly better. From Justlife staff and clients, thank you Adam.”
