Mike Hayward, an area sales manager at Pontypool-based bathroom brassware and sanitaryware distributor Faucets, recently took on a sponsored walk for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Hayward walked 55 miles from the Kohler Mira headquarters in Cheltenham to the Faucets office and warehouse in Pontypool, with the journey taking him through the Forest of Dean and the Usk Valleys.

Hayward – who completed the challenge earlier this month – walked 155,000 steps and climbed 2,130m, Faucets said. He managed to raise more than £1,250 for Make-A-Wish Foundation.

“What a fantastic achievement for a great cause,” said Faucets managing director Darren Taylor. “Mike, everyone at Faucets is very proud of you!”

In the summer, Faucets held its charity golf day at the Celtic Manor Resort to raise funds for the Make A Wish Foundation. More recently in November, the company raised £228 for Macmillan Cancer Support by taking part in The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.
