Mike Walk - 11 (2)The generosity of the window industry has put Emplas’ Mike Crewdson among the top one per cent of charity fundraisers on the Just Giving fundraising website in 2014.

Mike completed his 218 mile coast-to-coast walk across the North of England in just ten days to raise more than £22,000 – more than double his original target – for St Ann’s Hospice in Manchester and Tapping House Hospice in Norfolk.

Taking on the challenge in the memory of his late wife Rosemary Crewdson, Mike set out supported by colleagues from the window industry from St Bees in Cumbria on the Irish Sea on the second anniversary of her death on 21st May last year, and finished the walk at Robin Hood’s Bay on the Yorkshire coast 10 days later.

Sponsors included Emplas, T&K Home Improvements, Ecostar Double Glazing, Profile 22, Total Glass and Total Hardware plus donations from across the industry.

Mike said: “The window industry always rallies behind good causes but I was really blown away by the support we got last year.

“Once again my thanks go out to all those who have supported me along the way.”
