Introducing our Warehouse Manager at Newark, Roy Howell. Now you may want to remember this guy’s name because as of next March he will of trekked across 120km of the Arctic! Only 200 miles north of the arctic circle, in temperatures as low as minus 35!
We’d like to start by recognising why Roy is taking part in this adventure, something very close to his heart!
“The trek i’m doing is to raise money to help fund Beaumond House Community Hospice in Newark. It’s a small charity which cares for unfortunate Cancer and Leukaemia sufferers. With only four beds available the care that every patient gets is virtually one to one. The staff are amazing and the atmosphere is always friendly and comforting. I got involved a few years ago because they helped care for my grandfather who suffered from Leukaemia. Unfortunately, he passed away in 2011, so I will be doing this in his memory. Beaumond House Community Hospice are now helping my Aunt who has Pancreatic and Liver Cancer, so I am also doing this to raise money so that they can help her in every way possible like they did my Grandfather.”
The Trek is a ten day trip, where they will be travelling cross country over nearly 120km of the sub zero arctic, and they will be sleeping in tents on the chilly arctic ice!
