Rygor, a Westbury based vehicle group dealer, are celebrating their fundraising success with their Charities of the Year scheme.
This year, Rygor are supporting the James Hopkins Trust, the Bath Cats & Dogs Home and Dorothy House Hospice Care. The Charities of the Year initiative was set up to enable the company’s team members to nominate and vote to support charities which benefit some of the local communities.
As part of their fundraising, a group of 11 Rygor team members came together to embark on a three peak challenge which involved climbing Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in the Lake District and Snowdon in Wales, one after the other, in just 24 hours.
Friends and family members supported the Rygor team, along with a team of five drivers to transport them between the mountains. Jeremy Price, fleet sales manager at Rygor who took part in the challenge said: “It was great to see our team come together and support each other in this challenge, in a bid to raise money for our charities of the year. Whether they drove, or completed two or all three mountains, the effort and determination each of our team showed was fantastic.”
Henrietta Beard, corporate and major donor fundraiser at Dorothy House Hospice Care said: “Once again, the dynamic team from Rygor has risen to the challenge of supporting Dorothy House Hospice Care in an ambitious and physically challenging way. Huge congratulations and thank you to everyone who took part.”
So far the team has raised more then £1,300 from this challenge, which will go towards their annual target of £6,000.
