Congleton team climbs a mountain for Sport Relief

Congleton Specsavers staff raised more than £700 for this year's Sport Relief

Determined staff from Congleton's Specsavers store literally climbed a mountain to climb in their bid to raise as much as possible for this year’s Sport Relief.

Eleven members of the team at Congleton Specsavers and staff from the nearby Bojangles brasserie pulled on the national charity campaign’s iconic bright red headbands and t-shirts as they set out on their bid to reach the summit of Mount Snowdon.

Inspiring team spirit

The already mile-high team spirit among staff at the Victoria Street store kick-started a fantastic number of generous donations from Specsavers customers. The store raised more than £700 in total.

Store director Tim Lovatt, who is among the team hoping to scale the highest peak in Wales, says: ‘As soon as we pitched the idea of climbing Snowdon to the team, I was thrilled with their overwhelmingly positive reaction.'

Feeling on top of the world

‘The level of determination amongst them to reach the top of the mountain together as a team is just inspiring.

‘The Sport Relief cause is fantastic reason to get active, have fun and most importantly raise life-changing cash so we’re hoping to make as much as possible.’
