A team from Billingshurst-based marketing agency PMW Communications is putting on walking boots to complete a 50km trek in memory of a former staff member at its client Rudridge.
The challenge will see PMW’s Managing Director Peter Sutton, Director Tracie Carter, Senior Account Managers Lizzie Moyse and Jackie Stainer, Copywriter Kate Clifford, Account Executive Nicky Riordan, and Account Management Administrator Eva White, start the 10-hour walk from Southwater on Saturday 22 June. The team will trek across various terrains and through several Sussex and Surrey villages before crossing the finish line at Rudridge’s depot in Farnham.
The walkers will receive a hero’s welcome and be treated to a celebration of home-cooked food served by volunteers from Rapid Relief – a charitable organisation that provides catering support to the UK’s emergency services.
Tony Marshall, who worked at Rudridge’s Farnham branch for many years, suffered a fatal stroke in 2016 and ‘The F.A.S.T. Road to Rudridge’ charity walk is raising much needed funds for the Stroke Association, which aims to raise awareness of symptoms (face, arms, speech, time), as well as support survivors.
Peter Sutton commented: “Rudridge has been a long-standing client of ours, so we’re delighted to be giving something back by helping their team honour the memory of their much-loved colleague. We’ve been training hard and we’re all looking forward to joining our fellow walkers to complete the challenge and raise money for a fantastic charity.”
