Only one brave and hungry soul managed to complete the challenge – Niki Harrop from the Customer Service Team.

Challengers faced the pub on a platter which features 2 half racks of BBQ pork ribs, 4 chicken wings, an XL flame-grilled cheese and bacon burger and an onion ring stacker. Served with coleslaw, corn on the cob and an extra large portion of chips. The Glasshouse in Wath-upon-Dearne supplied the food at half price once they found out that the challenge was for such a deserving cause. Shane Dempsey, General Manager said: “Just glad to help put in the community.”

The challenge

Origin Broadband’s CEO, Oliver Bryssau said: “It was fantastic to see so many of our people take on the challenge for such a good cause. I think everyone had a great time taking part but there were some very full looking people afterwards.”
