Saniflo supports Cancer Research UK

Published:  09 August, 2013

Saniflo is to climb a mountain later this month in aid of Cancer Research UK.

A team of 10 will scale Ben Nevis, Great Britain’s highest mountain, in a bid to raise £5,000 for the charity. The team expects to complete the 1,344-metre hike in six hours and is preparing for all weathers.

The team includes employees from all areas of the company and each of them, including managing director Tim Pestell, has an individual sponsor target of £100. In addition, they are asking customers, suppliers, colleagues, family and friends to support the endeavor via the Saniflo Just Giving Page.

Mr Pestell said: “The team is really looking forward to raising some much-needed funds for a cause that is close to our hearts. Not only is it an opportunity to do something very worthwhile, but it is also an excellent opportunity for us to come together as a team and support each other through a challenging six hours. We are not necessarily the fittest team but we are definitely the most determined!

“We are writing to our largest customers and suppliers inviting them to support us and I would like to thank everyone in advance for their donations.

“No doubt we will have some amusing stories and photos to share after the event and hopefully a cheque exceeding our target of £5,000 for Cancer Research UK.”
