To celebrate industry charity, the Rainy Day Trust’s 175-year birthday, CEO Bryan Clover will hike  175 miles of the most rugged terrain around Cornwall from Newquay round to Mevagissey. 

The trek will see Mr Clover cover 25 miles a day for seven days, carrying 30lbs on his back.  Mr Clover’s challenge is just one of many that industry representatives are doing to raise money for the Trust in its 175th year.

Mr Clover explained: “This year we are aiming to drive awareness of the help that we can offer to people within the home improvement industry, and want to help more people than ever before.  The plan has always been to triple the number of people helped from 2015 to the end of 2018 and we are on target to achieve that.”

The Trust is inviting people and businesses to lend their support. Dulux is on board as a lead sponsor for the Rainy Day Ramble but the Trust is keen to have other businesses on board to sponsor the fundraising event.

Mr Clover added: “If your company wishes to sponsor us we can get your branding out there and will acknowledge all business donations on our social media accounts.  Every penny will count, so please help us hit our targets and help more people like you and those that you work with.”

As well as supporting the Trust’s ongoing fundraising efforts, the industry is invited to undertake their own tasks as part of the ‘#challenge175’ campaign, with its goal of having 175 people raising £175 each for the charity. Find out more at https://www.rainydaytrust.org.uk/175th-anniversary/
