AN OSWESTRY company is preparing to take on a fundraiser that promises spectacular views.

Aico has signed up to its latest challenge - the Snowdon Sunrise Trek - in aid of The Movement Centre in June, next year.

Almost 50 colleagues from the firm, and its sister company HomeLINK, will set off from their headquarters on the outskirts of Oswestry and travel through the night to north Wales.

They will begin their ascent at 2am.

Jane Pritchard, Aico’s Community Liaison, said: "The Movement Centre is an amazing local charity, very close to our hearts and we are always excited to look at new ways in which we can fundraise and support them."

The team will reach the summit of the largest mountain in Wales in time for the sunrise, meaning the journey will be carried out in the complete darkness of night.

The team will travel nine miles and ascend 3,199 feet.

The Movement Centre, a UK charity and specialist treatment centre, helps children who have cerebral palsy, Down's syndrome or other diagnosis to achieve new skills through increased strength and control of their movement.

This is done through Targeted Training, a type of specialist therapy that is currently only provided by The Movement Centre – based at the Orthopaedic Hospital in Gobowen – within the UK.

"We were delighted when Curtis approached us to see if we would be interested in a Snowdon Sunrise Trek next summer," said Jane.

"Having almost 60 Aico and HomeLINK colleagues signing up for the challenge is fantastic.

"We just need to all start training hard now and focus on reaching our fundraising target."
