A TEAM of adventurers from Old Dalby-based firm Hawthorn Theatrical Ltd are climbing Britain’s highest mountain on Saturday (August 17) for three charities.
The team of 17 will be scaling Ben Nevis in Scotland, with the aim of raising at least £750 each for Loros, Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People and Scotty’s Little Soldiers - a charity dedicated to supporting the children of men and women killed while serving in the British armed forces.
The team - which has the full backing of managing director Martin Hawthorn - will be led by his son, Gavin. The other team members are Jules Crawley, Jeanette Hicks, Lee Shrubb, Ed Thornton, Joe Duncan, Kev Proctor, Richard Hill, Richard Castle ‘Clyde’, Carl Culley, Matt Edgington, Ben Kusi, Sam Kilby, Paul Smith, James Cockayne, Ben Galbraith and Jack Hockin.
Team spokesman Jules Crawley said: “We’re intending to do this climb for ‘those that can’t’ and hope we raise enough money to benefit as many people as possible.”
