Eight dedicated employees from Leeds-based Core Telecom are embarking on an eight hour trek up Tryfan Mountain in Snowdonia in aid of charity.
They are aiming to raise £1,500 for Diabetes UK – a cause close to their hearts as two of Core Telecom’s team suffer from diabetes.
In fact, Chief Executive Mahmood Mazhar is so passionate about the cause that he is personally funding the team’s costs for their big charity weekend on 25 & 26 March and has vowed to donate whatever might be needed to ensure that their target of £1,500 is met.
Mr Mazhar said, “I like to help out with any charity work and I am delighted my team are raising raise money for such a worthy cause. They are more than aware of the hard work involved in this exciting challenge so I am happy to support them throughout the entire event”.
Known for its rugged crags and steep climbs, Tryfan Mountain is situated in Snowdonia, Wales. It is one of the most recognisable peaks in the region and at 3.010 feet above sea level it is the fifteenth highest mountain in Wales.
Although it may be a tough physical and mental challenge, Core Telecom’s team are embracing it with positive attitude and are determined to have fun so will be wearing Diabetes UK T-shirts, crazy hats and taking a flag along with them on their adventure.
The eight selected employees, who hope to complete the climb in less than eight hours, are being sponsored by their other generous colleagues, friends and family. Anyone wishing to sponsor them can do so online via their Just Giving page
