A team from Jurassic Fibre has completed a 103-mile charity walk for Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital’s Stroke Unit and raised almost £4,000.
From 17 – 20 April, the group of employees trekked from Ivybridge in South Devon to Lynmouth in the north of the county. They crossed Dartmoor and Exmoor, navigating with a compass and sleeping under the stars.
The team consisted of Dean Courtis, Service Delivery Supervisor; Matthew Clements, Planning Manager; James Day, GIS Technician; Kevin Orrell, Civil Construction Supervisor; Edit Boszormenyi, GIS Engineer Team Lead; Shane Mitchell, Service Delivery Supervisor; and Curtis Dixon, Construction Supervisor.
Commenting on their achievement, Dean said: “We definitely underestimated the challenge! The whole team are ecstatic that we were able to complete it and raise money for the Stroke Unit. It was a great team-building experience and everyone who participated gave it 110%.”
Michael Maltby, CEO and Founder, Jurassic Fibre, said: “I would like to congratulate Dean, Matt, James, Kevin, Edit, Shane and Curtis for their fantastic effort and for raising much-needed funds for this important cause. The team travelled a significant distance over just four days, which was no mean feat! They are a true testament to Jurassic Fibre and reflect the values that we hold as a company.
He added: “We’re deeply grateful for the Stroke Unit and great work they do, especially now in such difficult circumstances.”
