National Facilities Management are committed to supporting not only our customers but also local charities. So when we heard one of our customers, West Cornwall Pasty Co, was completing the Samworth Brothers Charity Challenge 2019, to raise money for The Rainbow Trust & Student Minds, we instantly offered our support.
The ‘West Cornwall Pasty Try-Athletes’, will be embarking on a gruelling 10-hour mountain walk, bike ride and sea canoe race across Exmoor. All the profits raised will be going to Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity – a charity which works tirelessly to support families who have a child with a life threatening or terminal illness and need specialist support on day to day basis and also to Student Minds – a charity whose work and support has a current personal connection to two members of their team, to help support young students with mental health challenges, and give them the confidence, skills and knowledge to look after their condition.
Taking part in the “tough” category will be no walk in the (national) park! The routes are kept a closely guarded secret until the day of the event, however a 13 week training programme is recommended in order for the route to even be completed!
