A group of four teammates from Motorpoint Newport are getting their climbing gear ready for their upcoming Snowdon charity ascent in aid of local mental health charity, Newport Mind.
The Motorpoint team of four will climb the highest peak in Wales and England on Thursday 15 June with a team line-up comprising Sales Controller, Mathew Llewellyn, Sales Executive, Shannen Hemmings, Sales Executive, Daniel Hopkins and Sales Manager, Michael Gittings (below).
Together they hope to raise £1000 to support the work of mental health charity Newport Mind, located on Commercial Road.
Jo, Community Fundraising Manager at Newport Mind said, “Having regular support from locally based organisations like Motorpoint Newport is vital. Motorpoint Newport’s continued fundraising support since 2019 is invaluable.
“It helps to ensure we can continue to provide much needed support in our community which helps our teams to make a real difference at a local level. Donations at the level of £1000.00 helps support us to continue providing vital services, such as our work with children and young people both within and outside of school, and our weekly support groups which are a lifeline to those who come along.”
One of the walkers, Michael Gittings, Sales Manager at the Motorpoint Newport store added, “We are keen to get behind and support the work of this incredible local charity. We know the work of Newport Mind is part of a vital network of support for some of the most vulnerable members of society. We are pleased to have the opportunity to help their work by getting stuck into our latest fundraising activity.”
