Storm Eunice fails to blow catering equipment walkers off course

Catering Equipment Walking Group, 18 February 2022

The Commercial Catering Equipment and Hospitality Industry Walking Group braved Storm Eunice last Friday to complete its latest charity trek.

20 members of the group, headed up by Celltherm Coldrooms’ business development manager James Connolly and Archer Catering Systems’ director Nick Archer, turned out despite the weather to scale the Kinder Scout plateau in the Peak District, Derbyshire.

Participants included Maire McCarney, Brian Jones, Glenn Danks, Katie Roberts, Laura Hariani, Jared Greenhalgh, Stuart Dale, Paul Horan, Paul Fieldhouse, Steve Loughton, Shelley Hudson and David Bryant, alongside five dogs.

Mr Connolly posted on LinkedIn: “Despite the squalls, driving rain, sleet and cold it was a great day in the hills around the great town of Glossop and along the route of the Mass Trespass of 1937.

“A big thank you to Adam Mason and CEDA for kindly sponsoring the bacon butties, teas and coffee before we set off!

“Thank you to Keith Warren for again providing the much appreciated chocolate via Steve Loughton towards the end of the walk!”

The event was in aid of mental health charity, Mind. The group had aimed to raise £500, but at the time of writing they’d already smashed that target with a total of £875. To donate further, click here.
