Sponsored Walk to Pen Y Fan in support of Sky Badger

28th, March

If you’ve been paying close attention to our blog lately, you will know that we are doing some fund raising for an awesome SEND charity called Sky Badger throughout 2020. As part of this, our South West team are organising a sponsored walk to Pen Y Fan on 28th March. If you’d like to join them on this walk, or sponsor their efforts, you can do so by checking out the information in this blog.

Climb the highest peak in South Wales with Axcis!

Pen y Fan is the highest peak in south Wales, situated in the Brecon Beacons National Park. At 886 metres (2,907 ft) above sea-level, it is also the highest British peak south of Cadair Idris in Snowdonia. On a clear day, the views across the Brecon Beacons are simply stunning – so what better way to spend a Saturday than to take on this challenge with Axcis!? In fact, this isn’t the first time we’ve got outdoors for a cause. From abseiling adventures and night runs to doing the Three Peaks Challenge, our team like to get in on the action to support our chosen charities, and we are very proud of them for that.

Why have we chosen to support Sky Badger?

This wonderful charity finds help and adventure for disabled children and their families all over the UK. They do this by building bridges between disabled children and the charities and services available to help. They find everything from disabled sports clubs to sibling groups to ‘make a wish’ charities and tell families about them though their website, social media platforms, videos, information packs and helpdesk. This small charity doesn’t attract national-level attention or huge charitable donations, so we are helping to shine a spotlight on them in 2020 so they can keep up the good work. Will you help?

How to get involved

If you’re not the active type or don’t have time…

If you’re more of a couch potato than a Saturday hiker, we’d love it if you could spare a few quid to sponsor our efforts on the 28th March – you can make a donation via our funding page. Any amount, no matter how big or small is hugely appreciated.

Or come for the walk!

However, if you’re keen to get involved yourself, we’d love for you to join us on the walk. You can either raise some money yourself and then make a one-off donation via our fundraising page, or you can pass the link onto your friends and family and ask them to sponsor you individually – whatever works best for you!

Help by sharing this blog or the funding link on social media

If you’d like to help but can’t spare time or cash at the moment, then no worries. How about trying to help spread the word, instead? We’d love it if you could share this blog to your own social media pages – or if you aren’t keen to do that, why not share our funding page? Here’s the link you need to do that: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/charise-clarke

Key information for those taking part

We will be meeting up at 12pm at the Cwm Gwdi car park and doing the Cwm Llwch walk – but be warned – this is the “tough” way to the summit! Make sure you come prepared for all weather and with suitable clothing, footwear, food and drink to keep you safe on your way. It would be a good idea to get in touch with the Axcis South West & Wales office and let them know that you intend to take part – that way they’ll know to wait for you on the day if you’re running late!

Are you seeking SEND work or staff?

If you’re looking for a SEND teaching or support job in England or Wales, why not register with Axcis, the SEND recruitment specialists? Or perhaps you need to recruit staff for your school or provision? If so, why not take a look at the Axcis Website, or get in touch today to find out how we can help?
