Two teams of Capula colleagues successfully completed the Severn Trent Water Mountain Challenge last week, raising more than £450 for charity in the process. A team of three employees completed a 10 mile trek and another team of four completed a 30 mile trek in record timing, winning two trophies, one for the overall fastest team (10 hours 25 minutes), as well as the trophy for the fastest contractor. The challenge through the Peak District National Park in Derbyshire was organised to raise money for WaterAid, a charity that has helped over 23 million people gain access to safe water and has improved hygiene and sanitation across 37 countries worldwide since its conception in 1981.
Business Development Manager, Dave Scott commented, “The conditions were perfect this year for the walk. We are pleased to have supported the charity for the fifth consecutive year, especially since as a business, Capula is active in the water industry and helps bring sustained water quality to over 20 million people in the UK.”
At Capula a variety of events are regularly organised by the Employee Association which brings together individuals who are interested in taking part in fun activities outside of work and supporting charities. For the remainder of the year, the varied activities include a tour of a local brewery, canoeing, ghyll scrambling, rambling and go-karting events.
