CDL Partitions Ltd have assembled a group of hardy staff to take on a charity challenge.

Calling themselves the Drywall Dragons, they take on the Tough Mudder race in Skipton, Yorkshire on Saturday 27th July and raise money for our hospices.

With 20 obstacles over 15km that include high walls, net scrambles, cold water plunges, mud slides and rope crawls, it is renowned as one of the UK’s most challenging adventure races.

Training hard

The company have been waiting to do something for the charity since the pandemic hit in 2020 and their chance has finally come.

CDL Managing Director, Bob Chamberlain, said: “I am so proud of all our employees who have risen to the challenge and already raised in excess of our £3,000 target for the brilliant Hope House Tŷ Gobaith children’s hospices.

“They are training hard to ensure a great performance on the day for all their kind sponsors.

“Well done to everybody for the huge effort and I look forward to cheering you on in Skipton.”

Employees not taking part will be joining with their families on the day.

Jenny Roberts, Gwynedd area fundraiser for the hospices, said: “We’re delighted CDL Partitions have chosen to raise funds for us.

“They truly are rooted in their local community and already do so much for the area.

“I wish them all the best and we’ll be rooting for them on the day.

"Thank you so much.”
