Staff at Methven UK are uniting to take part in a gruelling fundraising challenge in order to show support for their Australian colleagues following the devastating bushfires.

As part of the fundraiser, members of staff will embark on a challenge to ‘Move for Australia’ later this month, aiming to walk, run, cycle and swim 10,569 miles – the distance between the Methven UK Experience Centre in Warrington and the Caroma-on-Collins showroom in Sydney.

All proceeds from the challenge will be donated to the Red Cross disaster relief appeal, providing practical help and support for the thousands of people affected by the bushfires.

Speaking of the challenge, Methven UK CEO, Martin Walker, said: “We are deeply saddened by the mass devastation and loss of life caused by the bushfires in Australia. Many of our colleagues have been directly affected and many others have volunteered their time to help the local fire services with the rescue effort. We are humbled by both their courage and resilience and whilst we are too far away to offer any practical assistance, we wanted to do something. We are looking forward to challenging ourselves and working as a team to raise money for this vital cause.”
