When Steve Henry decided he wanted to raise money for two charities close to his heart, he could have easily baked a few cakes or ran a half marathon. But that wasn’t quite challenging enough for Steve and instead he chose to tackle a 250km husky drive across the arctic landscape of Lapland, Norway and Sweden!
Steve, a former member of the Horticultural Services team and now working in external cleaning at Alderley Park, was spurred on by a personal event four years ago.
“My wife discovered she had breast cancer,” he explained. “After her operation she was very unwell but thanks to some incredible people we’re now able to enjoy our lives together. I wanted to raise money for East Cheshire Hospice and Help For Heroes, to give something back to those amazing people.”
Brother Andy accompanied him on the trip which took place between 8 and 16 April, and which Steve described as “no mod cons, just me, my brother Andy, our guide, snow holes, a team of 10 huskies and the minus 30 landscape.”
To date, they have raised £310 and the Just Giving page is still open if you want to boost this total in light of such an exceptional effort:
