Employees of Zest 4 Leisure, a leading trade supplier of quality timber garden products, are celebrating after raising over ?21,000 for Cancer Research UK.

Team members from across the business went the extra mile by running, swimming and cycling, many pushing themselves to the limit in their fundraising endeavours.

Steve Morgan, Zest 4 Leisure?s Managing Director said: ?We initially set ourselves the target of raising ?10,000 but then changed it to ?20,000 as we were doing so well, so to have exceeded our second target is a fantastic achievement.

?I am incredibly proud of all employees who took part in the various challenges across the year.? It was tough going at times, but everyone persevered, and we are delighted to have raised so much money for such a deserving cause.

?I?d also like to say a big thank you to our customers nationwide, suppliers and friends of Zest for all their support.?

From the Flintshire 10k to the Chester and Manchester Marathons to IRONMAN Challenges, the team covered over 5,000 miles in 2017.? Nine colleagues also undertook the ?Walk All Over Cancer? 10,000 steps a day challenge, covering 1,350 miles in the process.

Louise Aubrey, Cancer Research UK?s Senior Local Fundraising Manager said: ?Zest 4 Leisure has put in so much hard work and commitment to raise money for us and we are extremely grateful that the company chose Cancer Research UK as its charity for 2017.

?We can?t thank them enough for all their support and all employees should be so proud of what they have achieved.?

As a growing company, Zest 4 Leisure is committed to employee fitness and long-term well-being as well as supporting the community and raising money for charity.? To that end, the company supplied training sessions four times a week in its warehouse in Mold throughout the year, with all staff committing to working as a team to support each other.

Steve added: ?Being involved with the local community is very important to us as a business, so we were delighted that Ysgol Llywelyn and other schools which participated in the Rhyl Community of Schools Triathlon supported us by raising ?3,000 for Cancer Research UK.?

In addition to Cancer Research UK, Zest 4 Leisure has previously supported a number of charities including Hope House Hospice, Alder Hey Children?s Hospital, Alzheimer?s Society and Meningitis Now.? An announcement about the chosen charity for 2018 will be made shortly.
