Colleagues and family from The WIgley Group are aiming to raise a mountain of cash as they climb Snowdon in aid of a baby hospice in Coventry.
A team will put their best foot forward to raise money for Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice, which provides palliative and respite care for children with a range of life limiting, life threatening or complex conditions up to five years old.
The group will trek a total of 18 miles to and from the summit of highest mountain in Wales, walking along The Llanberis Path – the longest of the six main paths.
A total of 12 colleagues and two family members will take part in the challenge on Saturday, September 30, including 11-year-old Bella who is walking alongside her dad, James, the company’s Chief Executive Officer.
Finance Manager Alexis Considine said: “We’re all really excited by the challenge and for most of us, including myself, it will the first time we’ll have walked up Snowdon, so it’ll be even more memorable to do it together as a team and spur each other on!
“Most importantly, it will help to raise vital cash for a fantastic and worthwhile cause which means so much to so many people in our local area.
“Zoe’s Place is the only hospice in the Midlands providing respite, palliative and end-of-life care to babies and children up to the age of five, so we’re delighted to support them with this challenge and raise as much money as possible.”
Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice is based in Ash Green and provides respite, end-of-life and palliative care for babies, infants and children from across the Midlands.
Zoe’s Place Corporate Fundraiser Lara Taylerson-Whyte added: “We support children and families to live life to its fullest here at Zoe’s Place, which is why support from our community is so important.
“The much-needed funds that The Wigley Group are raising allow us to continue offering our services to all who need them free of charge and ensure that very unwell children can enjoy the best possible quality of life.
“We’d like to say a massive thank you from everyone here at Zoe’s Place to The Wigley Group for taking on this tough challenge in support of the hospice. We greatly appreciate their generosity in supporting the vital work we do. We’re sure they’ll have a brilliant time and we wish them the best of luck!”
