Willmott Dixon goes on Tors


TWENTY-eight staff from Willmott Dixon's office in Cobham covered 45 miles across Dartmoor in sweltering heat to raise £8,000 for The Kambeng Trust last month .

The hardy hikers completed the route in just two days - no mean feat considering the route took in the Ten Tors, a series of hills with vertical rises and descents of over 3,000 feet.

Operations director Roger Forsdyke said: 'We were all keen to help this cause and felt it was a suitably tough challenge to complete. The first day was the hardest, with teams leaving at 8 am and returning 12 hours later, covering 30 miles in the process.

'The next day's 15 miles seemed a breeze after that and we were well supplied with water, bananas and blister plasters by other members of staff.'

The Kambeng Trust supports a village school in Bakary Sambouya, Gambia, west Africa.
