26 Mile Construction Challenge Raises 2,100

26 Mile Construction Challenge Raises 2,100

A team of four has raised over 2,000 through an endurance challenge on Exmoor.

Harry Russell, a Senior Engineering Manager on the Whitechapel project, joined up with former Taylor Woodrow colleagues to take part in the annual CARE Construction Challenge, a 26 mile bike, hike and kayak.

Alongside Harry was Paul Humphrey, Steph Taylor (formerly of the Tottenham Court Road upgrade) and Mark Howard.

Under blue skies and blazing sunshine, they completed the 26 mile course and associated mental challenge tasks in a respectable 5 hours and 37 minutes. 37 teams took part on the day, together contributing 70,000.

CARE International delivers humanitarian and development assistance to regions including the Indian sub-continent and Syria. The charity emphasises the importance of working with local staff, 97% of which are indigenous to the area receiving support.
