Hurst Doors Gets Muddy for Charity

Published: 06th June 2024

Colleagues from Hurst Doors recently participated in the ‘Get Caked’ event – a challenging five-mile muddy obstacle course – to help raise funds for Dove House Hospice, a local charity dedicated to providing vital care and support to individuals and families facing life-limiting illnesses, bereavement, and loneliness.

Charlotte Towle, Business Support Assistant, commented on her experience of the event; “I loved taking part in the Get Caked event! The Dove House team cheered us on all the way.

“My favourite obstacle was the makeshift water slide, especially because we were all caked in mud from the previous challenge. It’s great that the team are getting involved in these events this year and also knowing it’s all to support a great cause.”

Hayley Barker, Group Head of Marketing at Hurst Doors, said: “Our partnership with Dove House Hospice allows us to not only raise funds but also foster a sense of purpose and unity among our team. We are honoured to support such a deserving cause.”

Jonny Bottomley, Partnership Development Fundraiser at Dove House Hospice, said: “Hurst is doing it in the right way. They’re picking the right things to get that engagement and getting the most out of the partnership.

“Having a company like Hurst associated with us is a great endorsement for the business community, showcasing their commitment to local charities and community welfare.”

In addition to the ‘Get Caked’ event, Hurst Doors recently hosted an in-house Bake-Off competition, followed by a Bake Sale, which contributed to the company’s fundraising goal of £2,500.

Looking ahead, members of the Hurst team are gearing up for the Hull 10K in June, a 12-mile pub-to-pub walk in August (which Hurst is also sponsoring), and a fire and ice challenge in October, where participants will walk over fire and cut glass. All funds raised will go towards the charity which has to raise over £10 million annually to keep its vital facilities and services running.
