Up for the ShelterBox Challenge?

The Evolution team takes on the 2009 ShelterBox Challenge

A local company is looking for people from all walks of life to take part in the ultimate challenge to fundraise for Cornish charity ShelterBox.

Evolution Personal and Corporate Development, based in St Agnes, will be leading five teams in the ShelterBox Challenge across Dartmoor later this year.

They are looking for up to 15 volunteers to join them on an exciting journey of development which will culminate in a two-day, 30 mile trek in September, carrying the 40kg green ShelterBox and its contents.

Evolution director Martin Crump took part in the 2009 ShelterBox Challenge with his colleagues Nik Green and James Hampton plus client Rob Green.

He said: “We really value the work that ShelterBox do across the world, and it’s fantastic that a charity with such important global reach is based in Cornwall.

“It was an incredible experience taking part in the ShelterBox Challenge last year, not just the physical trek itself but the fundraising as well.

“We know how much it brought to our own personal development so we want to help others get involved and support them by leading our own teams.”

By joining one of the Evolution teams, volunteers will receive support to fundraise £1k per team plus a number of events over the next six months to develop teamwork, leadership and outdoor skills.

Anyone interested in taking part is invited to meet on Wednesday, March 3, 6pm to 8pm to find out more about the challenge.
