Osmond & Harold Raise Over £4000 for Southern Area Hospice!



A few months ago we announced that our MD, Osmond Gurgan and his cousin, Harold Beck had taken on a weight loss challenge to get fitter and healthier, whilst raising much need funds for a local charity that is close to their hearts – Southern Area Hospice.

The challenge is now over and the duo lost a grand total of 5 stones between them.  Recognising that there is still room for improvement, Harold and Osmond have vowed to maintain the good habits they’ve started and keep working on their health and fitness goals to lose even more weight over the coming months.

The cousins are pictured below handing over a cheque for £4,375.74 – an impressive total that will contribute to providing much needed care and support for patients and their families.
