The award-winning P&A Group has pledged its support for Alzheimer’s Society and has been working hard to raise funds for this essential cause. P&A Group’s managing director Steve Morgan and landscaping manager John Vaughan, along with Rob Boyns, director of Boyns.net, will be going the extra mile for the charity by taking on the Iron Man Wales Challenge on 14th September.
Of course, the world renowned Iron Man Challenge covers far more than a mile! Iron Man Wales is considered to be one of the toughest distance triathlons in the world. Steve, John and Rob will face the intense challenge of completing a 2.4 mile sea swim, a 112 mile bike ride and a 26.2 mile run, all within 17 hours!
Steve, John and Rob are hoping to raise £10,000 for Alzheimer’s Society and people can pledge their support by visiting https://www.justgiving.com/P-A-Fencing-and-Sheds-Ltd3. Thank you to businesses who got involved by sponsoring the kit to be worn by the Iron Men. All proceeds will go directly to Alzheimer’s Society.
Alzheimer’s Society works to improve the quality of life of people affected by dementia in Wales, England and Northern Ireland. The society was selected as P&A Group’s charity of choice for 2014, as it is a condition that touches the lives of so many. Steve explains,
“There are so many people within our society that live with this progressive and life-changing condition. At P&A Group, we work hard to support our local community and we feel privileged to be able to support such a worthy cause.”
