Three members of the Sempar team embark on their 6th fundraising walk on 22 September 2019. Alongside 30 friends, family and clients they’re raising money for the County Air Ambulance Trust’s HELP Appeal, providing hospitals with life-saving access to helipads.
The annual walk is organised by our Director, Steve Timmis, and to date has raised over £17,000 walking 100 miles. Steve started his walks in 2013 in memory of his late father who he tragically lost on 20 September 2013.
Steve explains: “My Dad was a very generous and giving person and I have pledged to spend the anniversary of his passing walking in aid of a charity with as many people as possible.”
Joining Steve, Aludia Binos and James Finucane of Sempar this year is Steve Chadwick, Director of Luminite IT (pictured above).
This year’s hike takes the walkers on a 20-mile trek across the Shropshire Hills on a circular route starting and finishing in Little Stretton. The challenging route involves a climbing ascent of 1,500 metres. Steve adds: “It will be another lung-bursting trail that will push everyone to their limits.”
Steve explains why he is supporting the HELP Appeal: “Having a hospital helipad close to the emergency department saves time and saves lives. On a personal level I also wish to support Lesley Knight, who after losing her only child Thomas in a road accident, has been dedicated to fundraising for more hospital helipads across the country.”
Lesley adds: “Partnering with Steve and his team has been amazing. Their passion and dedication to supporting the HELP Appeal has been phenomenal.”
