Eco2Solar is backing a Kidderminster school pupil in her bid to travel to Thailand and Cambodia to help local people living in deprived villages.
The Worcestershire-based installers are one of a number of local businesses that have helped Abbie Underhill raise £1,100 towards her £3,500 target by sponsoring the 14-year-old to complete a 100 mile walk up Snowdon earlier in April.
Abbie hopes to undertake the four-week trip next summer where she will trek to rural villages aiding locals who live in poverty.
“We are delighted and proud to support Abbie in her bid to help people who are less fortunate living in deprived areas,” said Paul Hutchens, managing director of Eco2Solar.
“By supporting such a worthwhile cause, we can play our part in helping Abbie make a real difference during her visit next year. It is important for us work closely with the community and schools to help give something back to the local area.”
Ms. Underhill added: “It is fantastic to have local support from Eco2Solar. Their involvement has given me a real kick-start and I hope to continue to meet my fundraising target in time to fulfil my challenge.”
