On the 17th of June, Barleycorn Removals from Wallingford and Caversham Moves in Caversham, Reading will be carrying a double bed, as well as 2 bedside tables to the top of Britain’s highest mountain. The team want to raise £5,000 to help Footsteps children become stronger and more able you can support them here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/A-bed-up-Ben-Nevis
There will be no chance of sleeping on the job as the team of 8 climb the 1,345 metres above sea level to the summit. This is the second challenge of this nature the team are undertaking. Last year they carried a sofa up Scafell Pike, England’s highest mountain, raising £1200 for Footsteps Foundation.
Chris Cox, 42 from Barleycorn Removals said “As a keen mountain walker myself, I wanted to do something different. Obviously in my line of work, I’m used to carrying furniture and Footsteps in such a great charity, we wanted to do it for them,”
At the summit of Ben Nevis, other walkers will be invited to pose on the bed for photos, in return for a donation to the charity.
Cox said “When we carried the sofa up Scafell, we didn’t appreciate just how many people would want their photo sat on it. It was a great way to raise extra money as we climbed, and a good excuse to put the sofa down for a rest!”
