Cranswick teams in the Asda Elan Valley Charity Challenge

Good luck to our fearless Cranswick colleagues who are taking part in the Asda Elan Valley Charity Challenge 2015 this weekend!

Tomorrow morning (16/05/15) eight Cranswick employees will join more than 30 teams in one of the toughest challenges in the UK based around the Elan Valley in Wales.

The aim is for a team to complete a challenging 7-mile walk across the renowned mountain range, followed by a 2-mile canoe race. The next phase will test competitor’s metal with an aerial tree climb before taking on a 26-mile bike ride.

The final leg of the bike ride takes the teams up to 1700 feet on top of the Dam where the teams of four will carry a log over 800 meters’ end to end. They will then cycle down to the finish for the final challenge - a 20-kilo coal carry.

So far in excess of £160k has been raised by all the teams and the money will go to Tickled Pink, a charity that raises money for the Breast Cancer Campaign and Breast Cancer Care.
