Duftons Tough Mudder Group Shot

Charity Tough Mudder 2016

At the end of May Duftons joined forces with the team at Thomas Dudley Ltd to complete the Tough Mudder Challenge. Tough Mudder is a gruelling assault course that involves 26 incredibly difficult obstacles all packed in to an 11.1 mile run!

It’s not for the faint hearted but we decided to team up to raise money for the amazing Make a Wish Foundation.


What does make a wish do?

Make a Wish offer amazing opportunities to children and young people suffering form life-threatening illnesses. Children can request anything from meeting Santa in Lapland to driving a rally car and the Make a Wish team will do their very best to organise their activity.

This does however come at cost, that’s why we worked so hard to get sponsorship for our Tough Mudder Challenge, in total we managed to raise a whopping £2670!



A message from Nigel Fowler

“Tough Mudder certainly lived up to its name and it is without doubt the hardest thing I have ever done. There were moments when I wondered just what the hell I was doing,” said Nigel Fowler, managing director of Duftons Plumbing and Heating Supplies.

“That said, the camaraderie between the 20 Duftons and Thomas Dudley staff, and indeed all of the other competitors, was truly remarkable and we all felt a real sense of achievement in finishing the course."

Mr Fowler continued: “We collectively raised £2,670 for this fantastic charity, which I am certain will go to good use. I would like to thank all of our sponsors for their generous support, and in particular to Phil Irwin from Thomas Dudley for coming up with the idea.”
