NAPIT walkers complete Jurassic challenge

Posted onPosted on 11th Jun

Pleasley Vale-based NAPIT staff and partners from NAPIT Drive and NAPIT Insurance completed a 30-mile charity walk along the Jurassic coast in Dorset.

The circular walk, which started and finished at Worth Matravers, took the team 13 hours to complete.

It was part of NAPIT’s efforts to raise money for the Electrical Industries Charity (EIC).

The team (pictured) passed Corfe Castle, rambled along the beach at Studland Bay, went to Swanage and headed up cliffs along the coastline of Dulston and Anvil point, facing thick sea mist and unstable terrain along the South West Coast Path.

Mike Andrews, NAPIT Group chief executive, said: “The walk was beautiful, although it became very tough at points — particularly as the sun was shining high for the most part.

“I am impressed we completed it within the 13 hours we had set ourselves and I’m proud of all of the team for pushing on, even with the amount of pain some were in due to blisters.

“It was very much a team effort and we spurred each other on to complete the challenge in an effort to reach our fundraising target of £5,000 for EIC.”

EIC is the only charity of its kind, offering a range of services to people in the electrical and energy-related industries, including assistance and guidance with health, employment, education and financial issues.
