May is charity month for Alsford Timber

The Alsford Timber Management Trainees have been set a challenge to raise £20,000 for the charity over the course of 2012.

Demelza is a charity that provides hospice care for children. The charity provides specialist care to children and young people who are unlikely to reach adulthood.

Staff are entering the Ladies Try a Triathlon in East Grinstead on May 13. This will entail a 250m swim followed by an 11km bike ride and finally a 2.5km run.

On May 26, a team from head office will be scaling 3,560ft to the peak of Mount Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales, and the third highest in the UK. There are 10 different routes to scale the mountain; one even makes reference to a history of ‘persons dying, so caution will be required’.

The team comprises Mathew Lewis, Ian McMullen, Roger Leech, Andy Milburn, Lee Mawbey, Jackie Croombes, Heidi Osborn, Finbarr Doyle and Nicola Rose. They have opted for the 7.5k, 3 hours Llanberis Path, which just happens to be where you can catch a train to the top as well.

There are many more events planned throughout the year.
