THREE staff from Servest Multi Service will be reaching new heights for charity.
Sara Gage, group operations administrator, Kelly Francis, PA to the Bury St Edmunds group’s chief executive, and Barry Brooks, group project manager, are in training to climb Africa’s highest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro.
Their target is £15,000 for Servest’s Little Hands Charity Foundation, which will give it to Rays of Sunshine, a charity that grants the wishes of children with serious or life-threatening illnesses. In the past, Rays of Sunshine has enabled children to meet the band One Direction, spend a day as a zookeeper and go to Disneyland Paris.
The Servest team’s eight-day trek will take them to 5,895 metres in June. They have organised several fund-raising events and had support from Servest customers while their intensive training programme was put together by personal trainer Julian Bynoe.
Chief executive Rob Legge said: “Kelly, Sara and Barry are an inspiration to me and all of the other staff at Servest, given their efforts to support such a fantastic cause and to face head on such an immense challenge.”
