The Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People will receive a donation of £4,400, after an intrepid team from Ideal Boilers and Gledhill Cylinders conquered an epic endurance challenge.

The 35-strong team of women and men took part in the Men’s Health Survival of the Fittest event at the National Water Sports Centre in Nottingham to raise the money.

The hard-core physical challenge involved tunnelling, climbing, running and canoeing across a 12-mile assault course of mud and water

“We really enjoyed our day and completing all of the obstacles; especially the water based ones,” said Ideal’s head of marketing, Carrie Young.

“It was a great bonding experiencing for us all and we are so pleased to be able to raise money for such a worthwhile cause.”


Rainbows is a hospice for children and young people with life-limiting and terminal conditions and their families. From carers to counsellors, medical professionals to palliative care specialists – it’s the people that are at the heart of Rainbows.
