We have now completed 5 months of fundraising where Sam and Jenna have completed various challenges and events to raise as much money as possible for Children In Need. Month 6 however is really something special!
On the 17th of June, along with 25 of our lovely colleagues from Welcome Break Fleet, we tackled the seriously fun 5k inflatable obstacle course. 5 kilometres of running, climbing, sliding and in some cases falling around the course and lots of amazing obstacles. What an amazing way to raise some cash for Pudsey!
As you can see from the photo above Team Fleet were well and truly up for the challenge! Once we arrived at Southampton we even got a Pudsey TShirt and a fun aerobic warm up! Even managed to squeeze in a little bit of planking before hand.
As far as 5k runs go this one was insanely fun! A lot more about teamwork than winning and a brilliant day out for a really good cause.
Some of the team got round the course super quick and were on hand to take some hilarious videos at the end.
It was so much fun to have our friends and colleagues join us on one of our wacky adventures and we wish we could do it all again!
Here we are very achy, burnt and tired but proud! Thank you to everyone at Children In Need for putting on such a great event, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and shall update with how much money we raised shortly!
There are still dates for Gung Ho this year and we would really recommend that you go and give it a go! You can visit the Gung Ho website by clicking here.

May was a busy busy month for us work wise but no fear we still managed to squeeze in a little bit of fundraising with Pudsey!
Pudsey braved the May Bank Holiday heat to visit all the kids (and Adults!) at Fleet Services enjoying the bank holiday.
Over £106 raised thanks to the wonderful customers at Fleet Services, thank you Pudsey!
We are now at nearly £900 for Pinky and Perky’s Children In Need Challenge! Thank you for your support, please keep donating, liking, tweeting, sharing and following!
Here is our 2pm update. We have been sitting at the services in our little camp for 6 hours now and are surprised at how generous people have been! Lots of money currently being raised for Pudsey and the amazing folk at BBC Children In Need which is fabulous.
Good old British weather did not let us down and the heavens have well and truly opened. The weather forecast did say rain from 1pm and exactly on schedule all of our lovely sunshine vanished and the rain began. We have resorted to hiding out under some clear recycling bags in an effort not get get absolutely drenched by the rain. So far this has been unsuccessful.
But now we are going to go back in time a bit: We did manage to get this photo before the rain started! As you can see our camp is very small so does not provide much protection from the rain. People keep telling us we should have got a bigger tent, but it would not be a challenge if it was easy! Main use for the tent is to keep our phones and stuff in to make sure they do not get wet, sadly it is not big enough for us to sleep in!
Also before the rain we thought we’d do a facebook live video to all the people on facebook who regularly support us. We also learnt something very important today. When we film for youtube we have to have the camera landscape but for facebook live it needs to be portrait. Who knew! This means you’ll have to turn your head 90 degrees to watch us. We apologise and will not make this mistake again! Also this sadly means you can’t fullscreen us, but that’s ok because we look better from further away! As you can see it was very sunny here before the rain appeared! Hence the sunglasses!
Even with the rain we are still smiling! See you all soon for another update and thank you for all your donations so far!

Today is the day! It’s 8 in the morning on Saturday and we have just set up our home for the next 24 hours. Unfortunately it is raining but we will not be deterred!! We are going to be blogging and vlogging our way through the next 24 hours with the occasional bout of facebook live to keep in contact with the lovely people who are supporting both us and Children In Need.
Above is our little “Camp Pudsey” which will be home for the next 24 hours.
Below is the first of our videos from 8am on the Saturday! Here we are feeling very chirpy as the sun decided to come out halfway through our video and grace us with it’s presence! How Kind!
Thank You to all of you who are following and donating to us! Here’s hoping we can raise a lot for Children In Need. This is challenge number 3 out of 12, you can see the rest of our challenges at http://www.CINChallenge.com/events and you can be an absolute diamond and donate if you like at http://www.CINChallenge.com/donate
