Howarth Timber raises charity funds with Ben Nevis climb

Published:  18 September, 2015

Employees from Howarth Timber recently completed the Ben Nevis Challenge, raising more than £11,000 for the company’s partner charity, Caudwell Children.

Forty-five members of staff, friends, family members and suppliers were involved in the gruelling challenge. The group completed the challenge in an average of seven hours, tackling some very rough terrain in the process.

Howarth Timber has an ongoing partnership with Caudwell Children, which provides family support services, equipment, treatment and therapies for disabled children and their families across the UK.

Howarth Timber has created a video concentrating on the company’s commitment to Caudwell Children, which can be viewed at:
