Champion’s champion takes up charity challenges

Kraig Seymour, yard sales manager at Champion Timber’s Weybridge store will be taking on two daring fundraising challenges over the summer.
The charity challenges are to celebrate the official opening of the branch – Champion’s 10th – on Tuseday June 28th and aim to raise money for local cause Shooting Star Chase, a leading children’s hospice charity caring for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families.

Seymour will first be tackling a daunting 100 metre abseil down the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth harbour, followed by a second challenge of an adrenaline pumping parachute jump.

The official opening of the Weybridge branch takes place on Tuesday 28th June from 4.00pm – 6.00pm. Goody bags, special deals and free refreshments will be on offer on the day plus a representative from Shooting Star Chase will be on hand to talk about the important work of the charity.

Seymour says: “I’m feeling a mixture of excitement and terror at the thought of completing these two challenges – more so the Spinnaker Tower abseil funnily enough! But I just keep reminding myself of where the fundraised money is going, to help Shooting Star Chase, and it makes me feel humble. I’m looking forward to my role as Yard Sales Manager at the new Weybridge branch too and these challenges are a great way to kick it all off!”
