14 members of staff from Pledge Office Chairs Ltd are climbing Mount Snowdon on Saturday, September 6, to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The staff from the Mill Road store decided to take up the challenge at the beginning of the year and have had a training assessor come in twice a month, to get them prepared for the climb,
Judy Hinds, one of the climbers, said: “We decided on Macmillan as most of us have experienced the good they do for the people we love.
“Most of the crew went for a practice climb in Edale, an area of the Peak District, and we are trying to improve our stamina as much as possible.”
The group have already raised £1977.15 and have set a target of £3,500.00.
Ms Hinds added: “My personal goal is £250 and I have spoken to a couple of the others, they are up to £200 each.
“We gave our training assessor a sponsor form and she got £175 for us, so far we are doing great and we really hope we can reach our target, it is for such a great cause.”
