Meadow Foods Staff To Take On Cumbrian Challenge For Charity

Meadow Foods Staff Preparing For The Walking For The Wounded Cumbrian Challenge

Leading supplier, Meadow Foods, has announced that members of staff will be tackling the arduous Cumbrian Challenge in the name of the organisation, Walking For The Wounded, a cause supported by the likes of Nick Knowles and Elizabeth Hurley, moulding a pathway for vulnerable veterans to re-integrate back into society and regain their independence. The UK-based charity helps ex-service people find new careers and aids them in their journey back into life outside of the armed forces.

Meadow Foods’ staff are hoping to raise over £50,000 for the foundation.

The Cumbrian Challenge is an annual flagship fundraising event that sees individuals, organisations and companies who want to show their support enduring a hike through the lake district. Routes begin at 15km with a 900m ascent, with the toughest option being 29k with a staggering 1900m ascent.
