Caring colleagues at Solus followed in the footsteps of their co-worker when they embarked upon a charity challenge to climb Snowdon.
The six-strong team was so inspired by Purchase Ledger Controller Julie Tooth, who recently completed the fundraiser, that they decided to scale the mountain themselves.
Connor Bryan, Liz Rutherford, Dave Foster, Graham Breeze, Brian Harvey and Zoe Barlow took part in the hike in aid of Cancer Research UK.
Between them they collected an impressive £430 for the charity which funds vital analysis into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of the illness.
It took the teammates between one hour and 40 minutes and four hours to reach the summit, which peaks at a staggering 1,085m above sea level.
Conner, who works in Sales Support at Solus’ head office in Birmingham, said: “We were really proud of Julie for completing the challenge and raising so much money for Birmingham Children’s Hospital. After talking to Julie about it, we were inspired and decided that we would also take on the challenge and donate money to a different charity.
“We have a great bunch of people at Solus and the whole team really gets behind fundraising efforts – we would like to thank everyone who sponsored us. It was an absolutely amazing experience from beginning to end. We had great fun, the views were incredible and the best thing of all was knowing that we were raising money for a brilliant charity which does so much good work. Cancer is an illness that effects all of our lives, either directly or indirectly, which is why we chose to support it.”
