A fearless group from leading insurer RSA and their suppliers have completed a challenge that scaled some of the highest peaks in Wales, including Snowdon, Garnedd Ugain, the Glyders and Carnedd Dafydd, raising £10,000 for national disability charity Motability.
Each of the 15 participants took less than 48 hours to complete the strenuous trek on rugged terrain to help fund a new assessment vehicle for Motability. Colleagues from RSA were joined by staff from law firm DWF LLP, DWS Bodyworks, Belron Group, Nationwide Crash Repair Centres, Howard Basford, Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor and RGI.
Rob Gibbs, Motability Director at RSA, took part in the trek. He said: “We’re thrilled and relieved to have finished this mentally and physically enduring challenge. We will shortly be celebrating 20 years of partnership with Motability and over that time have worked together to help people retain their independence, fulfil their potential and live their lives to the fullest.”
Hazel Gotfraind, Fundraising and Marketing Director for Motability, said: “We are extremely grateful to the group from RSA and their business partners for taking part in this difficult challenge. The money they have raised will help contribute towards an assessment vehicle for Motability, which will be used extensively around the UK to help hundreds of disabled people.”
Motability’s charitable work relies on voluntary income and aims to raise around £2.8 million each year to help customers who would otherwise be unable to afford the mobility solution they need. This income is raised through fundraising events, corporate support, individual fundraising, charitable trust and foundation donations and from trading activities.
Motability is the national charity that directs and oversees the Motability Scheme. Motability also provides financial assistance to customers, who would otherwise be unable to afford the mobility solution they need. Find out more at www.motability.co.uk
