The Pillar Wedge team has taken on a particularly painful challenge in aid of charity. The event, which was organised by Paul Williams (Maintenance Engineer), and Danielle Creswell ( Sales Coordinator), saw the strong team join forces to undertake a charity paintballing session at Black Ops Paintballing in Atherton, who generously donated £75 towards the Zinc Saves Kids Charity.
The charity from the International Zinc Association (IZA), raises money for the survival, growth, and development of undernourished children by funding UNICEF-supported programs around the world.
Mark Waters, Commercial Manager at Pillar Wedge, said: “We decided to undertake the challenge because we wanted to raise money for this fantastic cause, which is particularly relevant as we work with zinc on a daily basis. 15 members of the team braved the challenge, and although there were plenty of pain and bruises, we all had a great day.
"We’d like to give a huge thank you to Paul and Danielle for arranging the day, as well as Chris Boardman for supplying refreshments and also nominating myself and Paul Williams for the death run – where we really did take one for the team. We would like to dare any of the other plants, if they’re brave enough, to a paintballing challenge to see whether they have what it takes to defeat us!”
