Burdens employees cover new ground for Prostate Cancer UK

Burdens employees cover new ground for Prostate Cancer UK

Three employees from the UK’s leading provider of civils and utilities solutions, Burdens, recently teamed up with friends from Barclays Corporate to walk the South West Coastal Path, raising almost £2,500 for Prostate Cancer UK.

Terry Sloman, Sales Support Manager, Jeff Duffy, Sales/Estimator, and Steve Ganter, Area Relief Manager all donned their walking boots in order to tackle the 45-mile route from Swanage to Weymouth which crossed severe and demanding terrain.

Terry Sloman, who is responsible for National Accounts and Sales Office in Aldermaston, said: “It's crazy, but, so is prostate cancer. We all knew we had bitten off more than we could chew, but we just didn’t know how much until the event itself.

“Eight of us set off at Swanage and only one had to finish four miles short of Weymouth and is recuperating. At least the weather stayed good and the challenge now is to ensure we collect all the sponsorship money.”

 With an overall target of £3K, the team is still encouraging people to visit their page and donate before the end of September. If you would like to make a contribution, visit: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/team/ProstratePlodders
