'I'm a manager get me out of here!' Completed - Frankie & Benny's

The challenge has been completed! Twenty two members of the Frankie & Benny’s team in Scotland took part in a gruelling task on the 18th & 19th of June for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research – 'I’m A Manager Get Me Out Of Here'.

They were shipwrecked on Inchconnachan Island near Loch Lomond with the only inhabitants there - wallabies!

 

The team canoed over to the island and were faced with busch tucker like trials including eating, survival, navigation and endurance activities. They had to set up their own camp - build a shelter, a fire to cook food and catch their own food!

 

All of this was done with no modern day necessities – mobile phones, showers, toilets and more importantly no way off the island!

The only way to leave the island was to build their own raft to get back across. . .

The event was an amazing  success and the group have raised almost £6000 so far, with donations still coming in!

If you would like to donate to this wonderful cause and the team please visit the link below or text SURV51 with the amount to 70070! The page below is linked to the team page.
