Navitron raises £5.5k for charity

Nearly 20 employees from Navitron’s head office team have raised over £5,500 for charity by climbing Mt Snowdon in Wales.

From 24-26 April, the entire team made it to the summit and back down again in windy and hail-like conditions to raise £5,541.50 to date, for Ally Cadence Trust for SMA (ACT for SMA).

ACT for SMA is a charity committed to supporting families affected by Type 1 Spinal Muscular Atrophy – a neuromuscular disease that is the biggest genetic killer of U2s in the UK.

The idea for the climb came from sales manager Edward Reynolds, whose five-year-old son was diagnosed with Type 1 SMA.

Stephen Knight, Navitron’s commercial director, said: “We couldn’t be happier about pulling our team together to help one of our own. Edward is such an important part of the Navitron family, so there was no debate about whether we could help him raise money for such a great charity – the only question was how.”

Edward said: “My wife and I are so thankful for the amazing effort that everyone at Navitron has gone to. The team has raised a huge amount of money for ACT for SMA, which will directly support families who so desperately need help. Navitron have been so supportive, and we can’t thank them enough.”
