Swindon Capita Travel and Events team go the extra mile

The challenge

The team of 11 had 32 hours to complete the challenge which saw them walk between Chinnor, South Oxfordshire and Avebury, Wiltshire.

The team weathered 30C heat, humidity, downpours and hail in a challenging trek across a section of the Ridgeway National Trail.

Jason Cardy, events manager at Capita Travel and Events, said: “We’ve all got a few aches and pains after the trek but it’s nothing compared with what children and young people with cancer endure.

“We initially aimed to raise £1,000 to help CLIC Sargent provide the vital support that helps children, young people and their families cope with cancer.

“We’d like to say a big thank you to our support team, we couldn’t have made it through the weekend without their help.”

Thank you

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager James McDonald said: “I’d like to thank and congratulate the Capita Travel and Events team on completing the Ridgeway challenge and supporting CLIC Sargent.

"All of their training, sore feet and blisters will help us to support more children and young people who are facing a cancer diagnosis. Thank you.”
