Hörmann staff put through their paces for Alzheimer’s Society UK

Leading door manufacturer, Hörmann UK, is delighted to announce that members of staff from its Leicestershire-based headquarters in Coalville successfully completed two gruelling challenges last month to raise money for its charity partner, Alzheimer’s Society UK. 

The company, which has already raised an impressive £42k since it first partnered with the charity in 2015, saw over twenty-five members of staff take on the challenges to help bring it closer to its £45k target for 2017.

In May, fifteen members of staff teamed up to undertake the 5km and 10km Farmageddon obstacle course in Market Harborough. David O’Mara, marketing manager for Hörmann, was one of the fifteen who took part in the challenge

After the challenge, David O'Mara said: 
“Although it was a lot more difficult than I thought it was going to be, it was a fantastic experience and one that I am so pleased to have been a part of. It was a great feeling to have so many of us running it and encouraging each other all the way to the finish line.”

Last weekend, managing director, David Newcombe, completed the 102-mile Leicestershire Round, visiting key areas of the county over four days. Ten members of staff joined David at several points along the route to make sure that, no matter how much his feet may have hurt, he was motivated along the way.

Commenting on this endeavour, David Newcombe said: 
“The walk was an extremely rewarding, albeit challenging, experience and I thoroughly enjoyed every second of it. It was amazing to have a such a supportive team with me throughout the event, especially as some of them had also completed the Farmageddon obstacle course the week before. We are now just £3k away from our target of £45k and I could not be more delighted. Alzheimer’s Society UK is a very worthy cause that staff at Hörmann are proud to support.”

Farmageddon and the Leicestershire Round are the latest of several activities that Hörmann has organised in the last few years. To find out more information about Hörmann and its support for Alzheimer’s UK, or help it towards its target of £45k, visit
