ASCG soar to raise £2,000 for charity

As part of the firm’s Internal Management Development scheme, a group led by facilities manager at ASCG, Ian Fairlie, has raised £2,000 for Lakelands Hospice in Corby.

Lakelands Hospice is an independent charity committed to delivering the best possible practice and development of specialist palliative care for people with cancer, heart failure and other life-limiting illnesses.

The group, comprising of Linda Davison, Pawel Labaj, Caz Martin and Katherine Paley, recently traveled to Penrhyn Slate Quarry in North Wales to take on Zip World Velocity 2, the world’s fastest and Europe’s longest zip wire.

Ian said: “The zip wire tops speeds of 125mph, so we’re incredibly proud of the group who bravely took this challenge on. I would like to congratulation and thank them for their gallant efforts and extend thanks to every person who supported fundraising efforts. We thrilled to be able to support the hospice and the fantastic care they provide.”
