Two recent examples of Virgin Media supporting good causes – and getting rather muddy in the process – include community gardening in Glasgow and completing a Tough Mudder race for ScopeThe people over at Virgin Media have laced up their trainers to complete a sporting challenge for their national charity partner, Scope. Earlier this year, for example, a team of nine completed the London Marathon and just last weekend another 10.5 miles were pounded out at the South Gloustershire Tough Mudder.
Notoriously challenging, the course included over 20 obstacles ranging from tall wooden walls, carrying logs through ice cold water and running through 'electroshock therapy' with its live electric wires. Despite being caked in mud, soaked and frozen through in equal measure, all involved finished the race with a smile on their face. All their fundraising will go towards supporting Scope’s important work.
It’s not just Scope that Virgin Media are rolling up their sleeves for. Recently a team from their Glasgow office supported their local community church in Motherwell by giving the church’s garden a thoroughly good spruce up. Armed with shovels the team transformed the outdoor area, much to the admiration of local residents.
Their good deed didn’t stop there. One passing elderly resident told the team that living alone and with no family he struggles to keep his garden in order. Their colleagues agreed to go back on their day off, in their own time, to help out. This team really are making good things happen!
