When the going gets tough TeamJobs get going

TeamJobs, based in Poole, joined seven other teams from all over the country in the gruelling fundraising event, the Purbeck Pursuit.

The event, which TeamJobs sponsored, started from Stoborough Primary School near Wareham and involved an eight-mile cross country run, followed by a 15-mile mountain bike ride, a six-mile kayak, a six-mile treasure hunt and a 'fun' relay race.

TeamJobs resource manager and organiser of the event, Julian Knott said, "TeamJobs was very proud to sponsor the Purbeck Pursuit.

"This was the seventh event organised by the charity Sophie's Legacy. Sophie died in 2008 from ovarian cancer after fighting against it for 10 years and since then TeamJobs and many others have been fundraising in her honour for her two favourite charities, Macmillan Nurses and Prospect Hospice."

Knott added, "It was a really tough day We had an hour and half to complete each of the run, ride and kayak and then we had a timed 'treasure hunt' around Wareham in which we had to photograph 30 obscure things including 'steps to nowhere', 'a black bearded man', 'a perfect family' and even a scene from a horror movie.

"The event then finished with a team relay race in the playground of Stoborough School."

The Purbeck Pursuit has so far raised almost &pound8000, with money still being donated.
