- Categories: Latest News
At Armafix we believe in supporting charities to achieve their promises to their beneficiaries. One of our regular customers is carrying out the Trailtrekker Challenge 2013 on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd June.
Trailtrekker originally started as a training exercise for the Ghurkhas in 1997 and is a 100km (62½ miles) Non Stop walk covering over 30 hours in the Yorkshire Dales. It now has become a fundraising event for Oxfam and each team entering has to have at least 4 members and a commitment to raising a minimum of £3000 per team.
The team will be supported by a further team of 5 who will drive the support vehicle and equipment, providing well needed sustenance and encouragement! In preparation the teams participate in a tough training programme over a period of 3 to 4 months, sacrificing their time and each member covers the cost of their own equipment.
Here at Armafix we are pleased to have been able to contribute generously to this worthy cause, and wish the team every success with their selfless efforts.
