NATS employees fundraise for Help for Heroes
NATS employees joined the Help for Heroes Jurassic Coast Challenge on 11 August, raising money for the charity that supports wounded servicemen and women.
Three members of the engineering team, Phil Bradshaw, Ross Williams and Jonathan Bromley, joined the 250 strong group and trekked the 22 miles of the geologically diverse coastline of Dorset.
Following a linear route through England’s first Natural World Heritage Site – the Jurassic Coast – the trek started at Durlston Head and involved rich flora and fauna, steep inclines and breath-taking views of secluded bays and far reaching cliff tops, before finishing at Lulworth.
So far, the amount raised by the three NATS colleagues for the Jurassic Coast Challenge totals almost £1,000. This is not the first Help for Heroes event that NATS staff has taken part in however, with cake sales and quiz nights also being organised on a continuous basis.
Phil Bradshaw, Engineering Operations, NATS, said: “Help for Heroes is a worthwhile and deserving cause but as ex-RAF, along with Ross Williams, we also have a personal interest in the charity. It’s great to get involved and raise awareness as well as money and the support from NATS colleagues has been outstanding. The trek was a definite success and we look forward to the next challenge we can participate in.”
