Staff at a borough business put their bodies on the line to complete a gruelling challenge for charity.

A total of 13 members of Procter and Gamble’s (P&G) Cobalt site battled through the Whitley Bay Warrior Beach Assault – made up of 20 obstacles across a 10km course.

The Warrior Beach Assault was a great way for our department to organise a team building event and also raise a lot of money for our selected charities

Josh Anderson, of P&G

They conquered monkey bars, hay bales, windswept beaches, push-ups, squat thrusts, high-fences, balance beams, bog-running and mud.

In total, they raised £445 for Save The Children, Maggie’s Centre Newcastle and The Bubble Foundation.

Josh Anderson, one of the team, said: “The Warrior Beach Assault was a great way for our department to organise a team building event and also raise a lot of money for our selected charities.”

“We also made a video of the event and shared it in our team meeting the week after. Overall, it was a brilliant day out and I’d definitely do it again.”

Thanks to the supporters who also made it along to a cold and windy seafront to cheer all the team on. We are already looking forward to the next challenge.
