Rudding Park gets fired up for Charity

It’s game on for ten tenacious teams across the Harrogate district as they go head to head in an ‘Apprentice-style’ fundraising challenge to raise as much money as possible for Saint Michael’s Hospice during October, from a £100 loan.

The team at Rudding Park love a challenge and with just over a week to go we are doing our best to ensure we are this side of Lord Sugar’s boardroom!

With the darker nights drawing in, we decided to hold a Log Splitting Marathon where members of the team will be splitting seasoned logs by hand for 12 hours, non-stop from 7am on Wednesday 28 October. Bags of logs will be available for a £5 donation, all of which will go to Saint Michael’s Hospice.
Logs will be available for collection from Hotel or Golf reception before 5pm on Saturday 31 October 2015. Click HERE to donate and place your order.

Peter Banks said “Rudding Park is a member of the Saint Michael’s Guild of Patrons, so we were keen to be involved in this challenge. Staff are all fired up for the event and we really hope guests and local residents will support the charity and pick up some seasoned logs ready for winter”.

In addition to the Log Splitting Marathon it is also possible to take part in ‘Rudding Park Raffles Yorkshire’. For a £10 donation you have chance to win ten incredible prizes based on a Rudding Park experience with a Yorkshire twist, kindly donated by very generous partners.
