Higos Staff Conquer Beacons Challenge 2023
Making a difference is at the heart of everything we do.
At Higos, we’re committed to making a positive difference in our local communities where we each live and work; making it core to our culture, values and responsibility as a trusted inclusive business. That's why we've introduced a company volunteer day, which allows staff to use a paid day to support a local charity.
On the 15th July some of our Higos staff had the fantastic opportunity to utilise their company volunteer day by supporting our partner charity Youth Adventure Trust. They took part in their first ever Beacons challenge by hiking 23km up the Brecon Beacons in Wales. They fearlessly battled this impressive challenge through torrential rain, wind, thunder and lightning and from their tremendous efforts and remarkable volunteer work raised an impressive £5,279 to date.
The funds raised will ensure five deserving young people will have the opportunity to embark on their first school year with Youth Adventure Trust, enriched with transformative experiences and crucial support. This includes Explore Day, a 6-day Mountain Camp in the Brecon Beacons, additional 1:1 support and time liaising with schools and parents.
A massive congratulations to our members of staff who’ve truly made a difference with their incredible achievement. Our Branch Trading Director Alan Clarke who took part in the Beacons challenge said “I'm incredibly proud of the team, we faced extreme weather conditions and the camaraderie of everyone to make it as a team was great to see. We raised a fantastic amount of money for a great cause and on behalf of the team we would like to thank everyone who supported us with donations and messages of support, it really helped us take on and complete our challenge.”
We will continue to support our partner charity Youth Adventure Trust and their aim to give vulnerable young people the skills and confidence to be able to lead positive lives in the future.
