|Orchards of London Gear Up For A 'Mudder' Challenge|
Local Estate Agents in training for Help for Heroes charity
The team at Orchards in Chiswick have been busy helping a number of charities including handing out parcels to the homeless and supporting the Organ Appeal at St. Michael and All Angels.
Now they have put 12 team members forward to compete in the Tough Mudder obstacle course in South London in June. The event has been described as “probably the toughest event on the planet”, and all proceeds go to the Help the Heroes charity.
“The teams are very active and like to keep fit and healthy, so I thought it would be a fantastic chance to get everyone working together outside of the office to work as a team while also challenging their physical abilities in a completely different environment.
The course is between 10-12 miles long, consisting of a variety of obstacles along the way; including jumping into lakes, running through mud, crawling through tunnels, climbing up 12ft walls, swinging across monkey bars and rings and crawling under nets.

Recently the Orchards Marketing Director Rudolph Diesel took to the streets on to help people in need for the Love Brigade, an initiative created by Networking aficionado Tanya Mann Rennick.
The Love Brigade volunteers handed out 300 bags each filled with donations from blankets to sandwiches, hats, socks and other items that homeless people would need on a cold February night . In total 5,100 items were pledged and handed out on 17 February. The Love Brigade Facebook page grew from 50 to more than 464 volunteers in a few weeks.
Rudolph said; “When I was asked to join The Love Brigade and to not only donate but to hand out items to those in need I knew that this was a cause that I wanted to be involved with – not only this year but years to come. To be part of Tanya’s rapidly growing community of philanthropists is an honor.”
