Advantage gets muddy for Just a Drop

A team from the Advantage Travel Partnership has completed the Tough Mudder challenge, raising £4,200 for Just a Drop as a result. 

The amount was almost doubled the original target of £2,500.

A group of 10 from Advantage recently tackled the 12-mile obstacle course, which was designed by the Special Forces to test participants strength, stamina and determination.

The money raised will support an all-girls secondary school in Kenya, which currently has no access to clean water, sanitation or hygiene facilities. The funds will enable Just a Drop to construct a clean water tank and handwashing stations, and provide sanitation and hygiene education for the benefit of the school’s 592 students.

Advantage managing director Julia Lo Bue-Said said: “Tough Mudder was definitely the toughest physical challenge I have ever taken part in and when we crossed the finish line we all felt euphoric.

I am so proud of our team who just kept going on the day. As well as pushing ourselves to the limit physically, we also excelled with our fundraising efforts – so far we have collected more than £4,200 in sponsorship and our original target was £2,500.”

“To all of our industry friends who have sponsored us, thank you so much. Every single donation, no matter how big or small, really does make a difference. And thank you to those of you who sent messages of encouragement over the weekend – it meant a great deal to us.”

Just a Drop’s head of fundraising and communications, Brendan Hanlon, said: ‘Congratulations to the Advantage team for completing the gruelling Tough Mudder course! We’re hugely grateful for the team’s fantastic efforts in raising £4,200, which will completely transform the lives of 592 girls at Kiteta School in Kenya through access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene education.’
