Trent & Dove Housing Team hit the heights for charity

A group of staff from Trent & Dove has succeeded in reaching the top of Ben Nevis rasing money for the Stan Bowley Trust.

 

Staff at the summit of Ben NevisThe Trust is a charity set up in memory of group leader Pam Bowley’s brother, Alan, to raise funds towards purchasing a state of the art cancer treatment ‘Cyberknife’. Alan Bowley was a former pupil at Oldfields Middle School and Thomas Alleynes High School before joining the local police force covering the Uttoxeter and Leek areas. He lost his battle against cancer in 2011.

 

The team took just over 4 hours to complete the task and were rewarded with spectacular views over the glens and lochs of Scotland. Tes Ludlow, a member of the group said, “After the recent wet weather we’ve been having we were a little concerned about the conditions on the mountain. However, on the day of the climb we were rewarded with a clear day, no rain and a little sunshine – perfect conditions for what lay ahead of us.”

Group leader Pam added, “The ascent was long and hard going for novice walkers. However, we never envisaged that the trip back down would turn out to be just as hard, as we added to the blisters we had collected on the way up. It was spectacularly beautiful at the summit and worth all the hard work in the end. The group is hoping to raise in the region of £4,000 towards bringing ‘space age’ Cyberknife treatment to a local centre - donations can still be made at www.justgiving.com/pamela-bowley.”

 A CyberKnife is able to deliver high dosages of radiation to tumours, with absolute pinpoint accuracy, therefore giving hope to many people with life threatening and difficult to deal with cancers. Just one such machine costs in the region of £3.5m.”
