Six employees from three Armadillo Self Storage facilities recently climbed Mount Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales, to raise money for the Multiple Sclerosis Society. The team from the company’s stores in Liverpool and Stoke-on-Trent, England, included Dawn Bezer, Nina Blackwood, Ken Montgomery, Jenna Rawley, Fran Richards and Jonathon Wood. They completed the 7-kilometer hike along the Llanberis path in five hours, according to a company blog.
To date, the climbers have raised £230 and are expecting more to come in over the next few weeks, the blog stated. Donations can be made at Armadillo properties in North or South Liverpool.
“Armadillo Self Storage encourages its staff to support the local community, and we’re always looking for ways to do that. In an area team meeting, we realized we all knew someone who was suffering from [Multiple Sclerosis]. So, there and then we decided to do something to raise money to help further the amazing work and research the Multiple Sclerosis Society does to help those living with the disease,” said Rawley, manager of the Armadillo Liverpool North facility. “It was great to have the support of Armadillo, getting us there and back, and giving us some flexibility with working hours. We’re looking forward to our next fundraiser already!”
Armadillo Self Storage is part of the Big Yellow Group PLC family of self-storage properties. Big Yellow operates 84 locations in the United Kingdom under the Big Yellow Self Storage and Armadillo Self Storage brand names, with most concentrated in Greater London.
