Clark Contracts employees take on Tough Mudder for charity

SIX Clark Contracts employees recently took part in this year’s Scottish Tough Mudder challenge at Drumlanrig Castle to raise over £1,000 for SAMH.

The Tough Mudder is a team-based obstacle course race and mud run which takes place all over the UK. The event has raised over £20 million for UK charities over the past decade.

Employees from the contractor’s construction division’s quantity surveying team and recruitment and HR team completed the 10km course consisting of 20 famous obstacles. Some of the obstacles completed included a dunk in a 34-degree ice pit, electroshock therapy, mud mountains, and a cage crawl along a pit of water.

Gordon Cunningham, MD of Clark Contracts, said, “It is fantastic to see our employees getting involved in this hugely successful event to raise money for our nominated company charity SAMH, who do incredible work within their communities and across the country.”

As SAMH celebrate 100 years of supporting Scotland’s mental health, Clark Contracts have made a commitment to participate in a number of events to support SAMH and raise as much money as possible. Since June 2022, the company has raised over £10,000 for the charity.

The money raised will help SAMH with their aim of supporting people all over Scotland with their mental health.
