A team of hikers from automotive supply specialists Smart Fleet Solutions are set to climb Snowdon next month to raise funds for Marie Curie.
Eight colleagues will undertake the climb on Sunday June 12th, and hope to reach the summit of the 1,085 metre-high mountain and return to the bottom within nine hours.
The team, drawn from Smart Fleet Solutions’ Holmes Chapel HQ and its Newcastle-Under-Lyme used car retailer EnjoyCarLife, have been training for the challenge and aim to raise more than £500 for the cancer charity.
Sue Bennett, who will undertake the climb with colleagues Mike Rduch, Charlotte Anderson, Matt Millington, Lindsey Heath, Julie Sayce, Simon Osborne, Emma Twite and Alana Rowlands, said that the business was committed to supporting numerous charities and that Marie Curie was an organization close to many of her colleagues’ hearts.
“SFS takes its commitment to good causes very seriously, and while most of our centres generally support local charities, Marie Curie is very important to many of our staff and we wanted to do something to help fund the work it does with terminally ill patients and their families.
“A £20 donation pays for the charity to nurse someone for one hour, so we’re hoping to raise enough to fund at least 25 hours’ worth of vital care.
“Our hike will start at 8.30am, and we’re taking the Miners route to the top and the Llanberis route back to the bottom, and we’re hoping the weather will be kind to us on the day! We’re looking forward to some spectacular views, some team bonding and most importantly, to being able to make a significant contribution to a very important resource,” she said.
