Cellular Solutions Team Walk on Sunshine after raising £2851 for Charity
The gruelling 16KM walk over the South Downs was completed by all 14 staff members who tackled it together to raise money for six charities that have causes very close to their hearts.
The volunteers, from all parts of the company, set off across the Downs in scorching temperatures from Stanmer Park, by the stately Stanmer house. The circular route then took the volunteers up the daunting Ditchling beacon, the highest point in the county of East Sussex. The group also passed the Chattri, a war memorial for the Indian soldiers that fought in the First World War, a perfect moment to reflect, 100 years on from the start of the Great War, and catch breath before completing the last stretch.
Cellular Solutions director Damien Mottram: “I’m so proud of the team that completed the challenge – just as I’m proud of this and all of the work we do with our various charities. It’s close to the core of our culture at Cellular Solutions and it’s always a thrill, but never a surprise, to see so many of our staff raising money for our charities.”
