ASTON BARCLAY CELEBRATES BORNE ARCTIC CHALLENGE SUCCESS
Posted 30 April 2018
Aston Barclay’s SAS training partner company Break-Point is feeling on top of the world today as director Jason Fox (Foxy from Channel 4’s hit show SAS: Who Dares Wins) has reached the North Pole as part of the Borne Arctic Challenge.
Foxy completed the week-long mission with nine other team members, including England rugby World Cup winner Will Greenwood, to raise £750,000 for the Borne charity to fund extensive research into preventing premature birth.
Foxy took an Aston Barclay banner with him which he proudly hoisted in temperatures of -40 degrees on reaching the North Pole to inform auction staff of his team’s achievement, and he well and truly did ‘smash it!’.
“Foxy has worked in the special forces but we know from his updates that this is one of the toughest and most rewarding things he has ever done,” explained Neil Hodson, Aston Barclay’s CEO.
“Break-Point is a fantastic partner, training our teams in the importance of team work, setting a clear mission and the vital importance of communication. Everyone who has attended the training courses has come away speaking highly of Foxy and we are proud to have such a passionate ambassador for our brand.
“The team has helped put the charity well on its way to reaching its fund-raising goal and the Aston Barclay team has been proud to support Foxy along the way,” he added.
The charity Foxy and the team are raising money for, Borne, are a medical research charity that helps with premature births to save lives, prevent disability and create lifelong health for mothers and babies. Anyone who has been affected by premature child birth, or would like to support the charity, can donate at www.borne.org.uk.
