004 WBYC Three Peaks challenge
With Banner you can get involved
When a friend and teammate of my husband sadly passed away on the rugby pitch from a heart related condition, Banner supported the campaign I’m now involved with, the Danny Jones Defib Fund, to raise money for hundreds of community clubs across the country to buy defibrillators.
Defibrillators offer potentially life-saving treatment to anyone suffering a cardiac arrest. By enabling me to promote fundraising events within the business, Banner is helping this important campaign to save lives in grassroots sport.
With Banner you can find support
I signed up for the Three Peaks Challenge, which involved tackling the three tallest mountains in the UK within a 24-hour period. My colleagues at Banner became completely involved, sponsoring and backing me all the way. I was really pleased to finish the challenge in 22 hours and 35 minutes and celebrate with Danny Jones’ wife Lizzie at the top of Ben Nevis.
Lizzie has successfully campaigned for cardiac screening to become mandatory at more rugby league clubs than ever before and thanks to Banner’s support, I am able to do my bit to help her raise funds for this important campaign.
