PHR's MD Joins the Pack

PHR Join Other Industy Leaders to Support Brigade


26 August 2016
In just 9 days’ time, the HBAA will be unleashing its Pack of Wolves at this year’s Wolf Run to raise much needed funds for its chosen charity of choice for 2016 and 2017: The Brigade

As one of the Pack and HBAA Chair, Leigh Cowlishaw says, “Brigade is what this run is all about for the HBAA Pack of Wolves; we are all incredibly focused on our goal of raising at least £1500, as part of our overall £20K annual target for Beyond Food to support the incredible work it does with the homeless and giving them employment in our industry”.

Being held on Saturday 3rd September, the Wolf Run is an approximate 10k off-road run featuring a series of man-made and natural obstacles located throughout the course. The concept behind the Wolf Run was to re-create the feeling of running in natural terrain - a wild run that would allow people to experience natural, raw running conditions.

The HBAA Pack of Wolves has undergone a rigorous training programme in preparation for the event and members of the Pack are:
  • Simon Boyle – The Brigade
  • Alison Makosz – The Belfry
  • Juliet Price - HBAA
  • Leigh Cowlishaw – Capita Travel and Events
  • Amy Dixon – Macdonald Hotels & resorts
  • Nina Walker – CCD Global Events
  • Justin Meek – Warwick Conferences
  • Jonathan Ashley Cowan – PHR
  • Simon Rigby – De Vere Venues, Four Pillars and Principal Hayley
  • James Bee – Macdonald Burlington Hotel
  • Mark McMahon - Village Hotel Farnborough
In support of this fantastic commitment made by some of our committee members and HBAA members, we ask if you could make a donation to the Wolf Pack’s efforts in aid of Brigade. Alison Makosz, also one of the “Pack” and HBAA Venue Chair, says “We are asking everyone to donate as little or as much as you can afford to support our homeless and help them to change their lives positively.”

Beyond Food Foundation was established in 2004 by Simon Boyle.  Simon began his career working as an apprentice chef at The Savoy, and has since enjoyed a highly respectable career.  Simon has worked tirelessly to help homeless people across London to rebuild their lives. Using food as a catalyst, Simon has set about imparting his passion, skills and knowledge of cooking and food on to Beyond Food Foundation's apprentices, encouraging them to move their lives forward in a meaningful way.

Simon Boyle of Brigade says, “The Wolf run is a unique event that will test each competitor to their limits. We are hugely grateful that the HBAA have chosen to put themselves (and me!) through this challenge in order to raise vital funds for Beyond Food. I am looking forward to reaching the finish line. Good luck to everyone competing!”
