A mountain to climb for Surrey signmakers

Stocksigns/Messagemaker Displays have announced the details of their latest (their 8th) charity challenge in aid of the Tadworth Children’s Trust.

Every year the company, along with some of its customers and suppliers, take on a challenge in the aid of raising money for the Surrey-based charity. Last year the team scaled Poland’s highest mountain and raised £15,000.

As it has been for the last few years, the chosen charity is again The Children’s Trust, the UK’s leading charity for children with injury. Based in Tadworth (local to the firm’s HQ) the Trust runs a range of specialist care, education, and therapy services for children and young people across the UK and the UK’s largest rehabilitation centre for children with acquired brain injury (ABI).

The challenge this year is climbing Mount Olympus and is a 2-day trek to the summit and back down again. The team will be staying overnight, at 8,800ft in a mountain hut and taking on the summit on day 2. The final Ascent of the summit is where it gets tricky where the team will have to wear harnesses and helmets to take on this Class III YSD-graded ascent to the top. It will require a head for heights as well as a lot of fitness to get to the top of Olympus at just under 3000m.

Throughout the year, Messagemaker Displays continue to support The Children’s Trust and their local community. Whether it be litter picking or gardening, they do their bit to help. Earlier this year, a group of eight helped out with some serious weeding at the Children’s Trust. The trust has 24 acres of woodland and gardens, so keeping them maintained is quite a task and with only two gardeners, they rely heavily on happy humans like us for volunteering days.
