Suzy Drewett and Alison Haynes from TMS will be taking on the challenge of walking 35km with their colleague Alan McLaughlin and his family will be walking the 10km walk.

The money raised by the trio will go to support Heather House, which is run by the charity SeeAbility, supports 16 young people with life-limiting conditions, including a rare disease called juvenile Batten disease

TMS appointed SeeAbility as its charity of the year last September and set itself a target of raising £7,000 for Heather House, which is the only residential service of its kind in the UK.

Since deciding to support the charity YMS has raised 4005.84 so far.

Sarah Kenrick, registered manager at SeeAbility Heather House, said: “Every day we face the ‘battle with Batten’ head on and hand-in-hand with the young adults we support and their remarkable families.

“We are thrilled with the support from TMS as we really value the support of the local community and organisations.”

Lindsay Heath, communications and marketing manager at TMS, added: “Our fundraising activities so far have included bake sales, a guess the baby photo competition, a raffle, dress down days, a charity tuck shop and a 50:50 club.

“We also incentivise our staff to meet corporate objectives with TMS donating money every month for each objective hit. And we incentivise our customers and service users by donating money for each feedback form received.”

The trio who are embarking on the sponsored walk will set off on Saturday, 12 May with the 35km walk expected to take 6-7 hours.
