Led by Jon Taylor, Electrical Branch Manager, and Shelley Rutter, Branch Manager at two of City Plumbing’s London branches, the team, including Assistant Marketing Manager Maria Telenga and Group Financial Accounting Manager Jessica Jacques, tackled the tallest mountain in Wales at the toughest time of year. Facing unpredictable weather conditions and plummeting temperatures, the fundraisers completed the 3,560ft climb in 7.5 hours.


For their Snowdon climb, the City Plumbing fundraisers were also joined by friends from Fix Radio, CT1, ViperGas, Airflow, Google Nest, MB Plumbing, The Gas Expert, PB Plumbing,Gardenscapes, Accuwarm, JD Plumbing and Scott Bros Carpentry.


The climb concludes City Plumbing’s three-month fundraising challenge – dubbed Mission Unstoppable – in aid of charity partner, Teenage Cancer Trust. Having partnered with the charity for 10 years, City Plumbing and its team across the UK have hosted hundreds of fundraising events and hopes to take its fundraising total to £3 million in 2023.


Liz Forte, chief marketing officer, said: “10 years into our charity partnership with Teenage Cancer Trust, we’ve raised almost £3 million for this fantastic charity. Today, the partnership is an integral part of our business, and all of our teams across the country are involved in some way in our fundraising efforts. Together, we’re supporting teenagers to access the support and services they need through a charity which is wholeheartedly committed to its cause.”


Jon Taylor, electrical manager at City Plumbing’s Colindale branch, who helped lead the climb, added: “We put the call out and an amazing team answered from all over the plumbing and heating world. 26 strangers drove hundreds of miles and pushed themselves to the edge with -6°C temperatures and 50mph winds. Knowing we’re supporting the fantastic work of Teenage Cancer Trust made the climb completely worthwhile. The charity does incredible work to support youngsters who have been diagnosed with cancer, providing support and services when they need them most. We’re extremely proud to have completed our challenge and are grateful to everybody who has made a donation.”
