F & P tackle Snowdon for Alzheimer’s

Last month, the commercial team from heating, plumbing and bathroom wholesaler F & P, Primaflow and Connections trekked to the summit of Mount Snowdon to raise money for Alzheimer’s Society.

The team of eight managers and directors walked a distance of around 10 miles and scaled the 3,500-foot-high peak – carrying a radiator and length of four-inch soil pipe.

The company’s Head of Marketing Tim Ramsey, one of the intrepid team who took on inclement weather conditions to reach the summit, said: “The drizzle and grey clouds did nothing to dampen our spirits, and we enjoyed taking in the beautiful landscape of Snowdonia as we climbed – though there were moments that we wished our radiator was operational, as the heat would have been most welcome. We’re thrilled to have raised almost £2,000 for our charity partner Alzheimer’s Society, and we’d like to thank everyone who has supported us.”

Managing director Jed Kenrick said: “We are delighted to be able to offer our support to such a worthy cause. Dementia affects over 850,000 people in the UK; this figure is expected to rise to 1 million by 2021, with no cure currently available. Through their tireless work, the charity aims to make sure being diagnosed doesn’t mean life has to end, by providing the best support possible for people living with dementia and carers alike. We hope our fundraising support will go some way to helping further the valuable research into finding a cure, and the care so many rely on can continue.”
