Airmaster resources director Lisa Pogson has just completed her first Pink Ribbon ten mile challenge walk in aid of breast cancer research.
She has been joined in her quest by friends and suppliers Gemma Daniels, client services director at multi-media agency, Hydra Creative, and Faye Smith, director of Keep Your Fork marketing and PR, together raising nearly £800.
“I thought it was a productive way to raise money for a great cause – I knew Gemma’s mother in law had died of breast cancer and Faye was walking in support of her friend Eleanor, currently receiving treatment.
“There are few of us untouched directly or closely by cancer and we all wanted to do our bit.
“My co-director Richard Pogson has just completed the West Highland Way challenge to raise funds for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, and we women wanted to show we could do our bit!”
Gemma- who co-leads the award-winning fresh air networking group, Netwalking Sheffield with Faye, said:
“All three of us would like to thank everyone who supported us by donating to this brilliant cause.
“The route was hilly and the heat made it hard going, but we were committed to finishing and the camaraderie of thousands of other women at this big regional event helped us along the way. We are now planning our next challenge!”
Airmaster, the air conditioning and heating specialists have grown from a one man start-up in 1992, to employing 26 staff working nationwide from their Swallownest premises on the Sheffield-Rotherham border today.
