At Sammons Recruitment Group, we're not just about connecting top talent to great employer brands, we're about pushing boundaries, supporting each other, and making a difference in our community.

That’s why when the opportunity arose to participate in Tough Mudder, a gruelling obstacle course designed to test physical and mental endurance, we didn’t hesitate to lace up our trainers and dive in headfirst.

This year, a dedicated team from across our Group embarked on the ultimate test of strength, stamina, and teamwork. Our fearless squad tackled mud pits, scaling walls, and navigated electrifying obstacles, all in support of Coram, raising over an incredible £1,800.

Coram change children’s lives for the better, child by child. They operate as a group of nine specialists children’s charities working together to ensure that children have a loving home, a voice that’s heard, skills for the future, and a chance to shine.

The Smith family, owners of the Sammons Recruitment Group, have been long-term supporters, and chose to establish Sheila’s Fund at Coram, as a consequence of their immediate family involvement in the Grenfell Tower fire tragedy on 14th June 2017, where Martyn’s mother, Harriet’s Grandmother, Shelia, was one of the 72 victims who lost their lives. Sheila was a mother, grandmother and friend to many. She was also a uniquely resilient and independent woman, and her loss in the Grenfell Tower fire tragedy left a huge gap in the lives of those who knew her. With the support of the Smith family, and in Sheila’s memory, Coram provided immediate support through schools in the Grenfell area to enable children, young people and their teachers to address difficult issues including grief, loss, coping skills, fear and anxiety.

Children’s chances in life depend on where they live and who they live with, and the money we’ve raised will make a huge difference to the lives of children who need Coram’s support most. With each step we took, each obstacle we conquered, and each donation we received, we knew we were making a real difference in the lives of those who need it most. Whether it’s providing support for children in foster care, helping families in crisis, or advocating for children’s rights, Coram is doing incredible work, and we’re honoured to support their cause.

As we crossed the finish line, covered in mud and sweat, but with smiles on our faces, we were reminded of the power of teamwork, resilience, and community. Together, we’ve shown that when we come together for a common purpose, there’s no challenge too great, no obstacle too daunting, and no goal beyond our reach.

To everyone who has supported us on this journey, from friends and family to clients and colleagues, we extend our heartfelt thanks and gratitude. Your generosity has made a real and lasting impact, not only on our team but on the lives of countless children and families in need.
