Peter Holthuysen’s Kilimanjaro Charity challenge

He did it! Rittal service engineer Peter Holthuysen is safely back home now and on target for a total of £1000 raised for the Daisy Appeal (still time to sponsor if you were waiting to see if he actually did it)  https://www.justgiving.com/PeterHolthuysen/

Peter and his wife have been involved with the Daisy Appeal charity for some time and have been working hard to help raise funds for 2 new cyclotron scanning machines to be located, one at Hull University and one at Castle hill hospital Hull.

These units are intended to assist in the training of the new generation of doctors and surgeons. The machines and specifically designed centre to house them cost £7.5m which has to be funded entirely from charitable donations. Peter started his expedition in Africa on the 26th September  spent 7 days walking the mountain which is 5895 meters high which is the highest point in Africa.

The money raised will contribute towards the purchase of the machine and will help many people over a long period of time.

So proud of Peter, and thanks to all that supported and sponsored him so far.

Rittal Charity Cycle Ride in aid of a local children’s hospice

A team from Rittal have raised over £3,100 through a sponsored cycle ride from their factory in Plymouth to the company’s head office in Rotherham, in aid of a local charity, the Bluebell Wood children’s hospice in Sheffield.

Taking over four days and with 340 miles completed in total, the Rittal team, Ian, Nick and Phil faced the challenge with no back up vehicle, were completely self-sufficient and carried all their own essential supplies such as clothing, food and bike tools.

Bluebell Wood children’s hospice offers care and support for families with young children with a shortened life expectancy, both in their own homes and at the hospice in North Anston. They give families the chance to relax, take a break and have fun, and help to support the whole family during the remainder of the child’s life.

It costs the charity over £3 million every year to offer this support and they receive less than 5% statutory government funding. The Rittal team would like to thank all those who contributed to help the charities cause.
