A 2019 To Remember For Our Material Handling Sales Manager

It will be a 2019 to remember for the Material Handling Sales Manager Nathan Jones!

Always up for a challenge and looking to raise money for a charity, this year he is looking to push himself that little bit further all in aid of Diabetes UK!
Nathan’s wife Natalie has type 1 diabetes. Day to day life can be difficult for her at the best of times but she still manages to remain positive and get on with day to day life even though sometimes some of life’s luxuries have to be forfeited.

For 2019, Nathan has decided to raise this money and awareness by taking on three separate challenges! Firstly he will be giving up alcohol completely for 6 months. The man loves a beer so we think this is a challenge in itself! This will then be followed by competing in the SF10 race.

The SF10 race is a 10 mile course over the Clwydian range, North Wales over hilly terrain, under military conditions and carrying a burgeon weighing around 35lbs!
This is around the weight of one of our AluTruks!
Now we promote them as lightweight but carrying one on your back over 10 miles is another thing entirely!
The event itself takes place at the start of June and will be a real test of physical and mental strength!

As well as no alcohol and SF10 Nathan is hoping to take part in the 3 peak challenge later on in the year. Climbing Ben Nevis, Snowdon and Scafell Pike all within a 24 hour period.

Nathan commented “Diabetes is a disease that I don’t think gets the awareness it deserves. Type 1 is never diagnosed because of the way that person has lived their life, it is something you get and has no cure. Raising this awareness is important to me as my family see what effects it can have on day to day life”
BIL Group will be making a donation to Nathan’s epic challenge and we look forward to providing updates and support along the way!
Nathan is raising money through Just Giving and we have provided a link below should any of our valued customers wish to support him also!
