Slumberland climb Snowdon for Macmillan Woodlands Cancer Centre

On Saturday 4th June, the Slumberland team took on Mount Snowdon to raise money for the Macmillan Woodlands Cancer Centre at Hinchingbrooke, Huntingdon.

At 3,560 feet high, Snowdon is one of the highest mountains in the British Isles and the team successfully climbed to the top with a mini Slumberland bed.

John Cornhill, Healthy and Safety Advisor at Steinhoff UK Beds said “It was a tough day, a great sense of achievement, lots of fun and satisfying knowing we have raised lots of money for a good cause.”

The Slumberland team have a history of charitable efforts. It was their fourth year raising money for the Macmillan Woodlands Cancer Centre, after one of the team member’s wife received treatment there a few years ago.

Previous years of fundraising included Last of the Summer Wine Walk dressed up as Nora Batty and Compo characters, Sherwood Forest Walk dressed up as Robin Hoods and maid Marion’s and Walking the Viking Way dressed up as Vikings and carrying a longboat.

The Slumberland team are delighted to have raised over £1200 for the Macmillan Woodlands Cancer Centre this year. John Cornhill said “We are already thinking about what to do next year to raise money, but I am sure it will most likely involve a bed.”
