Toomey Leasing Staff Complete Snowdonia Challenge

On 11th June 2016, 4 Toomey Leasing Group (TLG) staff completed the gruelling Snowdonia Charity Challenge in aid of Regain, a UK based charity that works tirelessly to improve the lives of British men and women who have become tetraplegic as a result of a sports or leisure injury.

Toomey’s brave and committed team consisted of David Houlgrave; Lee Eyes; John Johnson and Paul Nash and they were sponsored by Toomey Leasing as well as their friends a families. The Snowdonia Charity Challenge is set in the stunning Snowdonia National Park, and teams of four are challenged to cycle 40 miles, climb Mount Snowdon and canoe Lake Gwynant. The Toomey Leasing team completed the challenge and at the time of writing, have raised £2140 of their £2k target. Donations are still being made in support of the team’s achievement and you can add to the total by visiting their JustGiving page.

Before the challenge took place, Lee Eyes, TLG Sales Team Leader for Chester office contemplated the task ahead:

“This is going to be a true challenge for 4 middle aged ‘desk jockeys’!”

The Snowdonia Charity Challenge supports Regain as it is the only charity that is solely dedicated to improving the lives of people who have become paralysed as a result of a sporting accident. One minute these individuals are fit and healthy until suddenly they must make huge adjustments to live the rest of their lives paralysed, with continual support. This change presents many challenges for those affected and it is only with charitable support from organisations like Regain that they can begin to move on with their lives.

After the demanding challenge was over, Lee commented that:

“Whilst it was tough, the rest of the team and I feel proud to have been a part of such a worthwhile challenge. If we can make a small contribution to improving the lives of those affected by tetraplegia then it has been worth it. Please remember, we are still receiving donations – it’s not too late to make a small contribution, every penny helps!”
