Birmingham-based Stoford Developments is one of three Midland companies that are going the extra mile to achieve the lofty aims of a major charity challenge.
The commercial property developer, along with construction consultancy DBK and electronics manufacturer Exception EMS, has agreed to sponsor a bid by more than 30 members of Bournville Rugby Club and the city’s business community to scale all three of the UK’s highest peaks in fewer than 24 hours.
The sponsors will be meeting the costs of transporting the intrepid party to Ben Nevis and then on to Scafell Pike and Mount Snowdon and back, as well as taking part in the epic walk from June 18-19.
David Brown, Stoford Director, said: “We want to ensure that all the £6,000 that we hope to raise from the challenge will go directly to two worth causes.”
Duncan Berry, DBK Director, added: “I am hoping the walk will be made somewhat easier with this great crowd of people and in recognition to Harry our sadly missed rugby friend”.
The event, organised by Tim Lang, Partner with George Green LLP Solicitors, is in aid of the Amelia Tempest Trust Fund, set up to support the very young daughter of a former captain of Bournville Rugby Club who died from brain cancer last year.
The other half of the proceeds will go to the head and neck cancer charity Get-A-Head.
