Pure's Charity of the Year
Each year, the Pure Lubrication team selects a worthwhile charity to support throughout the year. The charities we support are important to us in many ways, and we always try to help as much as we can.
2021 Chosen Charity of the Year:
The Trussell Trust
About the Trussell Trust
The Trussell Trust supports over 1,200 food bank centres across the UK, where they provide emergency food and support to people locked in poverty, while also campaigning for change to end the need for food banks in the future.
2021 team fundraising efforts
Simon and Irene took up the challenge to ‘virtually’ climb well-known mountains. Irene scaled the equivalent height of Ben Nevis by climbing her stairs an amazing 587 times or 8,810 steps in total, and Simon jumped on board and climbed the equivalent of Mount Everest, climbing his stairs a knee numbing 3,871 times or 58,070 steps in total.
Andrew and his son Callum completed his charity challenge to climb the 11 Munro’s on the Cuillin Ridge on the Isle of Skye over 4 days. The 11 Munros which have a combined height of 10,503 metres or 34,459 feet, (Mount Everest is 8,849 metres or 29,032 feet!!). The highlight of their challenge was the narrow blade of rock that forms the summit of Sgurr Dearg also known as the Inaccessible Pinnacle.
Charities we have supported in previous years:
In 2020, the team decided to support Combat Stress, the UK’s leading mental health charity for veterans. Because Craig, one of our Lubrication Engineers, is an Army Reserve, he was passionate about this charity. Some of the fundraising activities that the team undertook in 2020 was a triathlon, Corryvrekan swim, team squat challenge and Craig’s 50-mile run challenge.
