IPU Group’s charity challenge for colleague

The West Bromwich-based IPU Group, specialists in fuel filtration and conditioning and emissions solutions, is supporting two members of its team who are taking on a charity challenge in aid of Cancer Research in memory of Dave Hutchings, a much-loved colleague.

Melissa Payne, IPU’s internal sales and marketing manager, said: “IPU’s Tristan Philpotts (fuel and environmental manager) and Jacob Briley (service engineer) are braving December temperatures and attempting to walk 66 miles non-stop in just 33 hours in aid of Cancer Research.

“Doing loops in the Peak District over the 4th – 5th December, they’re doing this challenge in memory of a much-loved colleague IPU recently lost to cancer and doing 1 mile for every year of his life. IPU also has another colleague and friend currently fighting it and know many others that are affected by it.

“Tristan and Jacob will be doing 4 large, 16-mile loops around the Edale area of the Peak District, passing a ‘base camp’ 4 times. Waiting there will be members of the IPU team, keeping the guys well fed and watered! Other members of the IPU team are also braving the cold and walking as much as they can.

“They are hoping to raise £2,000, and any donation received is so hugely appreciated! The team will be vlogging as much of the walk as possible, so look out for that on IPU’s LinkedIn & Twitter page!”

There is an interview with Tristan and Jacob on the IPU website.

Good luck to Tristan and Jacob!
