Hellermann Tyton duo row for 24 hours

Two employees of Plymouth-based Hellermann Tyton were sponsored to row for 24 hours to raise vital funds for children and young people with cancer.

Hellermann Tyton duo, Duncan Sargent and Ken Kenny, preparing to row 24 hours joined by the company’s Managing Director, Tim, and Senior Management Team Member, Fran.

Duncan Sargent and Ken Kenny from Plymouth-based cable management suppliers, Hellermann Tyton, have raised over £800 by participating in a sponsored row-a-thon.

The pair alternated every hour to row 24 hours on a Concept 2 indoor rowing machine, kindly donated by Virgin Active Plymouth.

Started by the Plymouth factory's managing director, Tim Evans, the pair pushed through each hour with fantastic support from their colleagues.

As a charity of the year partner, employees of the factory are now thinking of more ways to increase their fundraising for CLIC Sargent. Hellermann Tyton will also match its employees fundraising.

A huge effort

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Georgina Reed said: “I was thrilled to receive a call from Duncan to say Hellermann Tyton had selected CLIC Sargent as its charity of the year.

“Duncan and Ken have put in a huge amount of effort to get their fundraising off to a flying start. I look forward to seeing more from the company.”
