Angela Has a Real Mountain to Climb

Angela Sproston, HR's Group Recruitment Manager at Wakefield House has given herself a real mountain to climb this summer - Kilimanjaro.

This is is set to be quite a personal challenge as Angela describes herself as 'allergic to exercise'. In contrast her partner Brendan - who is also taking on the challenge - is a complete cycling and gym junkie.

Their reasons for taking this on? Angela explains:

Both Brendan and I have lost people close to us in the last few years to cancer and we want to raise money for Cancer Research UK to help fund their research into preventing, diagnosing and treating cancer.

So far they have raised £660.

My Wakefield House informant says Angela's made quite some head-way into her training, slogging it out on the Ridgeway and heading to the gym for plenty of squats and lunges. She can often be found hobbling round the office in pain after one too many lunges!

So let's make all that effort worthwhile by visiting Angela and Brendan's Just Giving page and showing our support. Angela says:

We would be really grateful if you could spare any money to help our cause. Please dig deep and donate now.

We'll keep you posted on Angela's progress between now and her climb at the end of July.
