As most of our customers already know, Tanz always strive to give something back to the community. Over the years we have raised funds for Cash4Kids, Les Hoey DreamMaker Foundation, The Tartan Explorer and Make a Wish Foundation, to name but a few.
As part of this years charitable initiatives, Tanz Tanning have got a 10 strong team together to
raise funds for St Andrews Hospice by doing, not just one, but TWO challenging obstacle courses.
On the 5th May we will be taking part in It’s a Knockout in Strathclyde Park. Our competitive sides will be showing when we work together to complete highly-amusing games which involve a variety of weird and wonderful tasks such as foam filled relays and climbing inflatables.
After the challenging obstacle course of Its a Knockout, our pride and tired muscles will only have a few weeks to recover before stepping up to Tough Mudder! The Tanz Warriors will be taking on the Full 13 Mile Tough Mudder challenge on the 17th June and, because it is so tough, the training programme for it began in January! Tough Mudder is famous for putting even the most hardened soldiers to the test so the Tanz Warriors are making sure they are ready to take it on with updates every day in the office on everyones training progress and a strict no chocolate rule now enforced!
There will be MANY obstacles to overcome in both challenges, mostly physical, some just for bragging rights... but it is all for a good cause so please show your support for the team and donate to St Andrews Hospice.
As the Tanz Head Office is based in Lanarkshire, some of the Tanz staff have personally experienced the work that St Andrews Hospice have done for family and friends needing rest-bite and end of life quality palliative care.
St. Andrew’s Hospice endeavours to provide a high standard of specialist palliative care to the people of Lanarkshire, encompassing human dignity and compassion. As Lanarkshire's only specialist palliative care hospice, they provide multidisciplinary support for patients, their families and carers. Whilst they receive funding from NHS Lanarkshire and other sources, this only partially covers their running costs.
Therefore we feel it is important to support this local cause as we are so close to it and we have known people who have benefited from the high quality care provided in the hospice. We have some challenging events coming up but it is worth every minute of training, tears and tantrums to support St Andrews Hospice in continuing to provide people with dignified care.
Please dig deep and support this worthy cause! Any donations, no matter how small, will be greatly appreciated.
