A team of Norwich insurance brokers battled through a gruelling steeple chase to raise more than £3,000 for Norfolk’s sight loss charity.

Kelvin Colbourn, an account handler at Surrey Street-based Towergate Insurance, was joined by colleagues, friends and family in a 5km steeplechase at Blackwater Farm in Great Witchingham, tackling over 50 horse-style jump obstacles through fields, woods and streams.

The nine-strong team took on the challenge to thank Norfolk and Norwich Association for the Blind for its care of Mr Colbourn’s grandmother at its Thomas Tawell House care home.

They even named their team in honour of the association’s head of fundraising, former Norwich City star Jeremy Goss.

Congratulating the team, Mr Goss said: “As requested by Kelvin, the cash raised will be spent on supporting the work done at Thomas Tawell House, where the NNAB provides residential care for people with poor sight.”
