If you feel frustrated with the length your commute when you’re stuck in traffic or an overcrowded carriage, spare a thought for the staff of Swindon based UC outfit Excalibur.
The team set out from technical director Graham Ford’s Welsh hometown of Croesyceiliog on for a 75 mile slog to the office on Monday, facing electric fences, caravans and ‘a large and angry herd of sheep’ before reaching work.
Excalibur staffers Darren Harper, Mike Hayden and Tony Jones went the distance, while a more sensible selection of the team chose to join in closer to Swindon. The walk raised over £2,000 for Wiltshire Air Ambulance and coincided with National Walk to Work Day.
Ford described the Monday morning trek stating, ‘The air ambulance is such a great charity supporting so many people in Wiltshire and surrounding counties. I hope the money we raised will go some way to saving further lives in the future. I am very grateful to my work colleagues Darren, Tony and Mike for joining me along the entire route. Their support over the weekend was fantastic.’
Valerie Whistler, Partnerships Coordinator for Wiltshire Air Ambulance, added ‘We are so grateful to these amazing employees from Excalibur Communications who overcame scorching heat, sore muscles and several blisters to achieve something not many would as part of their commitment to our 100 Club Airbase Appeal.’
