Employees from Origin will be running in a 10K Muddy Mucker obstacle challenge to raise money for Rennie Grove Hospice Care, taking place at the Penn Estate in Hertfordshire on Sunday 27 September, 2015.

The manufacturer of bespoke aluminium bi-fold doors, windows and made-to-measure blinds, has over 30 employees taking part in aid of Rennie Grove that has been caring for patients and families in Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire for over 30 years.

As part of Origin’s commitment to helping its local community, Origin has chosen to become a corporate patron of the hospice, getting involved in some of the events that Rennie Grove put on throughout the year, such as the Muddy Mucker, where Origin will be one of the main sponsors for the event.

Ben Brocklesby, sales and marketing director at Origin, said: “We feel very privileged to be able to take part in such an activity, while raising money for a worthwhile charity that does such great work in supporting families who need palliative and end-of-life care for their loved ones. At the moment we are all feeling quite calm about the challenge, but I am sure as it gets closer this will change!”

Mr Brocklesby continued: “Rennie Grove Hospice is very close to all our hearts, so we wanted to support them as much as possible with sponsorship as well as taking part in the challenge. The sponsorship money and donations from the public really do make a real difference to local patients suffering from life-limiting illnesses and their families, so we’re hoping to raise as much as possible and hope customers and suppliers will get involved too.”
