Story

As a growing company we are committed to employee fitness and long-term well being as well as supporting our community and raising money for charity. 

At the beginning of the year, we picked Cancer Research UK as our chosen charity for 2017 and set ourselves a goal to raise £10,000 for this charity that helps so many. Already, we have well exceeded that target and have currently raised over £14,000!

Now we want to reach £20,000!

Next up we have the Chester Marathon on October 8th where 23 P&A employees have signed up, and half of them are first timers, so please support them if you can!

Our Managing Director Steve Morgan and Fencing & Timber Buildings Manager, John Vaughan are taking part in a number of tough challenges across the year, which will see them complete a total distance of 1170 miles.

Many of our employees have and will join them along the way on some of these challenges and already we have achieved so much.

One of our biggest achievements this year so far, 25 of us ran and completed Manchester Marathon... That’s 100% success and many of the runners then didn’t think they’d be able to do it but… they did it. Now on to Chester where we hope we can do the same again!

But, that's not all we've been up to! Here are just a few of the events we have completed this year...


  • Steve and John completed the tough Slateman Triathlon in May, with a swim surrounded with mountains, a bike course in the heart of the Snowdonia and a run through a slate quarry

  • A group of employees took on the challenge of 'Walking All Over Cancer' by completing 10,000 steps a day.

  • A number of us took part in an It's A Knockout event at Ysgol Maesglas in Holywell, with two teams taking part in the fun.
  • We held a Golf Day at Pwll Glass near Ruthin where we raised a further £300 for CRUK.
  • Manager John Vaughan and Online Marketing Coordinator Sorin Tudorut completed the Snowman Triathlon, one of the UK's toughest triathlons in the heart of Snowdonia National Park in July.

  • Steve and John completed the Tour de Mon in August, a cycle sportive which took them around the picturesque island of Anglesey.
  • Steve & John returned as 'Ironmen' after completing the grueling 140 mile route that is Ironman Wales, a tough yet spectacular course set along the stunning Pembrokeshire coastline in September.
  • Steve, Sorin & John all completed The Sandman Triathlon in September, again on the beautiful island of Anglesey, part of this challenging 44 mile route took them along beaches for the running stages.

Managing Director Steve Morgan said: “I am so proud of all of our staff who have committed themselves to taking part in these tough challenges.

“It has been a huge challenge and we all have very sore legs on the day of the Manchester Marathon especially, but knowing we are able to raise money for such a good cause makes it all worthwhile.”

We chose Cancer Research UK as our chosen charity as many of our staff and close friends of P&A have faced the impact of cancer. Also, one member of our staff is currently undertaking treatment and we want to show our support.

The fundraising is also in memory of Howard Hughes who worked at P&A who passed away last year.

By taking part in these challenges it has not only has it made us fitter and work better as a motivated team but we will be making a heartfelt contribution to CRUK that we hope will make a difference…
