After a period of 2 years absence due to COVID restrictions, Gus Whyte, Sales Director at Hoppecke Industrial Batteries (UK) Ltd, once again dug out his kilt and along with 90 others tackled a number of hills in the Lake District, raising well needed money for the Institute of Cancer Research (ICR).
On a wet and windy day (which is very relevant when wearing a kilt) and on the 5th November, the climbs took place around the Coniston area in the Lake District National Park. The success of the day was recognised with thanks from the ICR, where with sponsorship support from his company, colleagues from the Materials Handling industry and friends, Gus was awarded the Climb of Life medal for the highest value donation collected by an individual. Gus and his wife Liz collected over £2,000 and as a group with the sponsorship, raffle and charity auction raised over £75,000. A valued contribution by the ICR.
Gus would like to thank everyone that supported him with this event to raise monies for a very worthy charity.
