A group of SYNETIQ colleagues took on the infamous obstacle course at the end of July. The team, made up of 35 colleagues tackled 20 obstacles over the 10k or 15k courses.

Since completing the course in 2021 in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support, SYNETIQ colleagues were eager to get involved again, this time raising money for Sue Ryder. The charity supports those affected by life-changing illnesses through palliative and neurological care.

With donations from colleagues, friends and family, the group raised more than £3,300. The team conquered fast-paced, team-oriented challenges including the ‘Kiss of Mud’, ‘Arctic Enema’ and ‘Electroshock Therapy’.

Natalie Buckley, Head of HR at SYNETIQ said: “The Tough Mudder course was challenging but we all had an amazing day and it was all worth it to raise money for such a beneficial cause. Almost every family will have someone who is in need of carers at some point and anything we can do to support them is so helpful.”

Lou Addison, Corporate Partnerships Manager, and Sue Ryder said: “We are so grateful to the team at SYNETIQ, who took on the Tough Mudder challenge and raised such an amazing amount of money for Sue Ryder. The money raised will go towards funding our expert and compassionate bereavement, palliative and neurological support services. Thank you SYNETIQ!”
