Ameon directors are celebrating the company’s 25th anniversary by tackling three Lake District challenges, covering 25 miles in one day, as part of the ‘Ameon 25’ programme of fundraising by staff and employees to raise a minimum of £25,000 for Brian House Children’s Hospice in Blackpool.
On Thursday 30th September they will undertake the ‘25 for Ameon 25’ challenges including: kayaking across Lake Windermere, cycling eight miles from Lake Windermere to Coniston and climbing the 800-metre fell, the Old Man of Coniston. Then, they’ll do it all again in reverse to finish on the eastern side of Lake Windermere before sunset.
The activity is to support a charity that due to the Covid pandemic has lost around £1.5 million in donations: money which it desperately needs to provide the vital, specialist care for children with complex needs and life-limiting conditions, whilst supporting their families at every step.
Managing director, Robin Lawson; contracts director, Rod Bunce; commercial director, Adam Sutton and Ameon Utilities’ managing director, Simon Gut; will form the group facing the elements for this special 25-mile ‘triathlon’.
Ameon has agreed to match, pound for pound, whatever is raised by the challenges in the ‘Ameon 25’ programme, so any donation, large or small will have double the impact for the children of Brian House.
