Broughton House, the Salford home for ex-servicemen and women, held a special lunch to thank the Manchester & Cheshire Construction team who raised more than £1,300 for the charity by taking part in the Total Warrior obstacle race.
Procurement manager Hazel Lovell and her husband Gaz, assistant quantity surveyors Peter Walshaw and Daniel Ryding, and trainee quantity surveyor Alex Wilson were joined by managing director Dave Lowe for the meal.
As it was also Dave’s 52nd birthday, Broughton House provided cupcakes to celebrate the occasion.
The visitors were taken on a tour of Broughton House by marketing and events manager Cara Roberts and development director Julie Verne, and met some of the resident veterans, who enthralled them with tales about their experiences in the armed forces.
Total Warrior involved 30 punishing obstacles over a 10km course in the Lake District.
The Manchester & Cheshire team raised £845 from sponsors, and the company added a £500 donation.
“We were pleased to be invited to Broughton House and to meet the staff and residents.
“It’s a fantastic charity which we are delighted to support, and we all thoroughly enjoyed being their guests. The birthday cupcakes were a lovely touch and much appreciated!”
“It was a pleasure to have the opportunity to thank the Manchester & Cheshire Construction team for their fantastic fundraising efforts on behalf of our veterans.
“Broughton House would not be able to create a comfortable home to serve those who served us were it not for our valuable corporate supporters who help each year with our funding needs.”
