This Summer, GCS Associates Recruitment Consultant, Kimberley Hollis took part in Spartan 5K obstacle race at Belvoir Castle in Grantham to raise money for the fantastic charity, Mind. Joined by our Managing Director, Michael Parry, Kimberley completed the race of 20 tough obstacles as well as finishing within 40 minutes!

Kimberley said,

“I am currently undertaking my Level 3- Recruitment Consultant NVQ with Apprenticeship Connect, as part of my Course I was asked to carry out an extracurricular activity! So, I chose to do something that I really hate 1- running, 2- obstacles (I have no upper body strength)! 3- MUD!

It was a really tough obstacle course, but MIND is a charity close to my heart and has really helped me and my family previously. I am so happy with the amount I raised and can’t wait to do another one!”

Kimberley is currently in this process of completing her qualification at Apprenticeship Connect and their apprentices and employees have been taking on several fitness challenges across the summer of 2023 to raise money for the mental health charity, Mind.

Apprentice Connect commented

“As a training provider, we believe in supporting our apprentices’ mental and physical well-being. Poor mental health impacts everyone and doesn’t discriminate; 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem every year in England*.

We’re passionate about contributing to social change and we encourage our employers, apprentices, and employees to get involved and help support us in giving back to the community.”

Well done to all and good luck at the next event!
