Covers scale new heights

Two teams from timber and builders merchant Covers have begun training in earnest ahead of tackling the challenging Pennine Way Mega Trek in July next year, raising funds to improve children’s healthcare.

Covers scale new heights

The two Covers teams are made up of staff from the Chichester depot. The members of team one are Jody Walker (captain), Justin Walsh, James Fallick and Dominique Anns, whilst team two members are Shaun Massey (captain), Jamie Irish, Kerry Wells and Dave Trusler.

All are fully committed not only to the training, but to raising significant funds for charity, MedEquip4Kids, which works to improve the health of babies and children by providing equipment that is not yet available from limited NHS resources.

The charity is celebrating its 30th birthday in 2015 and has raised over £14 million to fund equipment and facilities throughout the UK.

Henry Green, managing director for Covers, said: “Our staff are renowned for ‘going the extra mile’ and our Mega Trek teams are really putting that into practice for this very worthwhile charity. Everyone at Covers is a team player and this will stand them in good stead for the challenge ahead, alongside their strenuous training regime. We all wish them every success.”

A Just Giving page has been set up for those who would like to sponsor the Covers teams: and
