Mountain climbing Air-Seal team raise thousands for hospice

Air-Seal Products, a family-run business based in Wellington, has completed its second charity event of the year when seven members of the Air-Seal team trekked up Mount Snowdon to raise money for St Margaret’s Hospice Care.

The business was originally going to undertake the climb in 2020 to celebrate 20 years in business and raise money for the local charity but the trek was postponed due to the pandemic. Two years later, the company has successfully raised over £3,500 exceeding the original goal of £2,020.

“It has been fantastic to undertake this challenge, not only to raise money for such an altruistic charity, but also as a great team-building exercise,” said Director, Kerstin Burnand. “We are so pleased to be able to present St Margaret’s Hospice with this cheque and to thank them personally for their hard-work and compassion in caring for our loved ones during such a challenging time. We would also like to say a huge thank you to our generous sponsors who made this possible!”

The Air-Seal Products team have now recovered from the 1,085m hike in high winds and low visibility and are looking for their next challenge!
