Earlier this year, Heather Babbage, Ashwoods Electric Motors’ Financial Controller raised £300 for Cancer Research UK by taking on a gruelling 5-day trek across the Alps and completed it in just two and a half days! This is the equivalent of two marathons in two days!

Heather is a keen walker (as you have probably guessed) and has done very similar taxing challenges in Morocco and Iceland before this most recent adventure across the Franco-Italian border. We can hardly think of more picturesque locations to trek, although we will need some practice before we can begin to think about keeping pace with our Financial Controller!

Not content with these impressive feats alone, Heather has informed us that she has already signed up for the Isle of Wight Challenge in 2019. This is a challenge involving doing a full circuit of the Isle of Wight – a whopping 106km – in just 24 hours.

“Hopefully there’s no snow this time!” says Heather.

Heather will again be fundraising in the runup to the Isle of Wight Challenge, and we will share all the relevant details then.

Best of luck from all at Ashwoods and congratulations on an unbelievable achievement!
