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.
Emma Stevens, Head of HR at Meadow Foods, comments: “We are very proud of our Meadow Foods team who are taking on this challenge for such a worthy cause. We have a total of 20 staff members taking part from various divisions, and we’ll be cheering them on as a company every step of the way.”
Damian McDonlad who is Chief Financial Officer at Meadow Foods and who is participating in the Cumbrian Challenge added: “We’ve been training for this for several months now, and still have more hard work to put in – but we know when we tot up the amount that we’ve raised for this wonderful charity, it will all be worth it!”
