Saniflo success for Cancer Research UK

Published:  03 September, 2013

On 22 August, a team of 10 representing Saniflo walked to the top of the UK’s highest mountain Ben Nevis in Scotland to raise funds for Cancer Research UK.

The team completed the 1,344-metre/10 mile hike in six hours and raised £10,000 for the charity, beating their original target of £5,000.

The team included employees from all areas of the company and each of them had an individual sponsor target of £100. Saniflo also invited customers, suppliers, colleagues, family and friends to support the endeavor via the Saniflo Just Giving Page at

Tim Pestell, managing director of Saniflo UK, said: “Raising £10,000 for Cancer Research UK is a great achievement. I’d like to thank everyone who sponsored us. We had a great time walking Ben Nevis although it was very grueling at times due to the rocky terrain, our varying fitness levels and the mist that shrouded us as we got towards the top. There were no injuries, just a few aching limbs at the end of it. Now we’re looking forward to presenting the money to Cancer Research UK and knowing that the funds will be put to great use.”
