Inchcape UK’s Volkswagen and Porsche finance department are celebrating a successful Mount Snowdon climb to raise funds for the Snowdrop Suite at Wythenshawe Hospital.
The 18-strong Inchcape team took on the fundraising climb taking them to the summit of the highest mountain in Wales on August 17.
The climb was in recognition of the support the Snowdrop Suite provided to their friend and colleague Janine Quibell and her husband Elliot, when their daughter Arla was stillborn in November 2017.
Inchcape UK’s financial controller Ange Leah, who led the fundraising campaign, said: “Without the support and facilities provided by the Snowdrop team the precious time my amazing friend and colleague, Janine and her lovely husband Elliot, spent with Arla would not have been possible.
“The Snowdrop Suite is funded by charity donations and we want to do all we can to help ensure other parents who experience this tragedy get the chance to spend as much time as possible with their baby. Moments they can cherish forever.”
Ahead of the team challenge to climb Snowdon, Leah had already kick-started the fundraising by running the Greater Manchester Marathon in April.
Janine and her husband Elliot joined their friends and colleagues on the fundraising challenge.
The team also comprised: Siobhan Martin, Angela Carline, Craig Endicott, Rachel Sterling, James Hopper, Hannah Dubyl, Joanne Doorbar, Sara Luke, Laura Kent, Lesley Laker, Lisa Fletcher, Humza Ahmed and Jacki, Paul and Josh Morton (pictured).
To date, the team have raised £3,441 for the Snowdrop Suite which is part of the University Hospital of South Manchester NHS Foundation Trust (UHSM).
