The wind and rain didn’t dampen spirits as the second Annual Go Beyond Challenge Event got underway…..far from it, Brainwave supporters are made of strong stuff and, if anything, it added to the sense of achievement!  

One by one, teams abseiled castle walls, tried their hand at axe throwing, mastered the art of rifle shooting, fired arrows at targets and took to the wheels of the latest family of Land Rovers in the 4 x 4 circuit.

Having worked up quite an appetite outdoors guests were invited into the castle to a prosecco drinks reception followed by a hearty lunch and a chance to unwind and share experiences.

There were trophies and prizes for the winning teams, a fundraising auction and chocolate box raffle. This all helped to raise £5,228 which will enable more local children to follow a Brainwave Programme.

This event was created to challenge our supporters - very much as we challenge the children and families who follow a Brainwave programme on a daily basis. A huge thank you to our participants for approaching all the activities with gusto and enthusiasm (some being perhaps a little too good at the axe throwing!)

In times where fundraising can be a challenge – here is an event designed to do just that! Watch this space as next year’s event is already in the planning….
