GEW staff member Jason Aldridge successfully completed the 4th Annual 50/50 charity yomp raising a total of £550 for HOWRM & SA (Help Our Wounded Royal Marines and Supporting Arms). Jason was helped by the generous support from GEW (EC) Limited and numerous other staff members at the GEW Crawley head office.
Over 40 participants in the yomp covered the 50 miles along the coast from Brighton to Havant with their 50lb pack over a weekend in July raising altogether in excess of £32,000.
