Last Friday a group from Peel Energy joined over 500 people in taking part in MediaCityUK’s Urban Challenge. The challenge was set around a 6km assault course in Salford Quays and included a fair amount of grueling obstacles. The team managed to navigate through a sprint carrying sandbags, wooden hurdles, plastic pipes, monkey bars and a giant inflatable slide into the docks followed by a 100m meter swim.
The course finished with a 15ft wall climb, which was not for the faint of heart.
A day that started in the rain, finished in the sun with the whole team making it across the line together and in one piece....just. It is safe to say that some of us are now proudly supporting some substantial bumps and bruises!
Congratulations to the members of the team that took part and completed the course, and thank you to MediaCityUK and JLL for making the event happen.
Can’t wait for next year…
As most people know already, as a company Frodsham Wind Farm is committed to providing an annual community benefit fund of £120,000 which is to be used towards communal projects to benefit the local communities.
In the month of May Helsby High School was successful in its application and £35,000 is going towards resurfacing the netball and tennis courts. This is a great on-going project as the courts are available to not only the students of the school but open to people of the community to go and enjoy a game with friends and family. This is terrific project that the fund is helping towards and we are looking forward to seeing the finished courts.
Applications are now being applied for Round 4 with £60,000 available, the deadline to get application forms in is the 31st August 2018.
