Barratt supports Tough as Nails in Nailsea
Five star housebuilder Barratt Homes is set to support the local community in Nailsea by sponsoring the Tough as Nails assault course this summer. The event, now in its third year, is run by Sgt Mark Raby and the local Nailsea Neighbourhood team along with Carpe Diem Boot Camp and raises money for local youth projects.
This year’s event is set to support completion of a youth shelter in the town and organisers are hoping for a bumper entry on Sunday July 16. Adults and children can take part in either am 1k or 5k event with Tough as Nails based at Nailsea and Blackwell Rugby Club. “The aim of the event is to raise as much money as possible to put back into the local community so to have sponsorship from Barratt Homes is amazing,’’ said Sgt Raby. “Support of local businesses means that all of the proceeds from the day can help the local community and we look forward to welcoming Barratt to the event.”
The housebuilder is a strong supporter of local communities in which it is building and managing director Russell Glimstead said he was delighted to be supporting such a great event in Nailsea. “In areas where we are building new homes, we consider ourselves to be part of the community,” he said. “As such we are committed to supporting local charities, clubs and schools in any way we can and this is a perfect way to demonstrate our support.” Entries for this year’s event are now open – email: firstname.lastname@example.org for an application form.
