ehB Commercial Prepare To Survey Snowdon’s Summit

Leamington-based commercial property consultants ehB Commercial have increased their charitable efforts by accepting an invitation from youth charity Young People First to join them for the highest Christmas party in the UK on December 13.

ehB, which has named Myton Hospice as their charity for the year, have set a target to raise £5,000 by the end of May 2018 and fundraising has already begun by entering two teams and sponsoring two holes at the recent hospice golf day at Stoneleigh Golf Club, and sponsoring a Mini Cooper ‘S’ in the internationally recognised Rally Isle of Man.

The festive challenge is called Santas Rock Snowdon and ehB’s team of five will join teams from other businesses to climb up Snowdon dressed in Santa outfits, each business raising £1,000 for the charity’s work in reaching vulnerable young people in Coventry and Warwickshire. Participants will have their own party pack and Santa suit and will be entertained on the summit by a band of musical elves playing the nation’s favourite Christmas hits.

ehB director Scott Blake said his firm was committed to reaching the £1,000 target, with all additional funds raised going towards Myton Hospice. Mr Blake said: “We are really excited about the challenge and the opportunity to support two excellent local charities.”

Young People First spokesperson David Skoppek said: “the role that businesses like ehB play in supporting charities like ours must not be understated. We are incredibly grateful to them for accepting our challenge in addition to the great work they are already doing for Myton Hospice. We cannot wait to see them in December.”

ehB Commercial have in the past raised money for such causes as Leamington care centre Castel Froma, Pancreatic Cancer UK, Jennifer Trust (for spinal muscular atrophy) and Regain (for paralysed sportsmen and sportswomen).
