Web - Builder is back to beat gruelling triathlon challenge

Our North West business unit has announced its annual Beat the Builder triathlon challenge has raised in excess of £60,000 for charities across the region in just two years.

Now in its third year and changing location for the very first time, the event returns bigger and better than ever before.

Derian House Children’s Hospice is one of the charities to have benefited, having already been gifted over £36,000 to help with the day-to-day running and upkeep of the facility.

Teams for this year’s include staff from our North West head office in Warrington, as well as site teams and contractors alike. The gruelling triathlon will see the builders take on Snowdonia in Wales.

Stuart Craig, Head of Sales for Taylor Wimpey North West, says: “Beat the Builder has become an event in the calendar we all love and dread at the same time! The experience is such a rewarding one and it is great fun to spend time with colleagues and friends, but the course has its unforgiving moments!

“When we see the wonderful work that our chosen charities undertake on a daily basis, there’s no doubt that it’s all worth it!

“It’s fantastic that we’re able to give substantial contributions to causes like Derian House and Claire House – we know the money goes to great use and we couldn’t think of two better causes to partner with.

“Our teams are already hard at work training and fundraising for the event – we really think that this year’s Beat the Builder will be the best one yet.

“Knowing just what a different the money makes to the staff, children and families associated with Derian House and Clare House, it makes us even more determined to raise as much as we can and make them proud!”
