Venesky-Brown Completes Tough Mudder 5k!

Venesky-Brown recently competed in the inaugural Tough Mudder 5km run in Holyrood Park, Edinburgh. On a lovely sunny day all 26 of us bolstered by contacts from our clients and onsite workers, completed the course and raised over £2,000 for our chosen charity of 2018 – Health in Mind.

Raising funds started off as our main aim but what became apparent to us was that raising awareness of Mental Health was equally if not more important.

Below is a link to a short YouTube video of our day, which was great fun and gives a few more facts regarding Mental Health. It is very entertaining and worth a look:

Health in Mind are a mental health charity who have been promoting positive mental health in Scotland since 1982. As a large employer, we take mental health very seriously and we work closely with Health in Mind to support their cause so that, in turn, our employees know that we are there for them and they become more aware of the importance of mental health.

Thank you to everyone that supported us and if anyone still wants to make a donation for this important charity please go to our Just Giving page, see the link below :

Forth Rail Bridge Abseil

Five staff members from Venesky-Brown are taking part in the Forth Rail Bridge Abseil on the 21st October 2018.

For this unique challenge, our staff will be abseiling (free-fall style, like the S.A.S.!) from the iconic Forth Rail Bridge. It’s a 165ft drop with a soft landing on the sandy beach below.

We are fundraising for our chosen charity Health in Mind.
