Over £5,700 Raised! Dingle Dash Completed

Over £5,700 Raised! Dingle Dash Completed
24/06/2019

The Stocksigns team have been fundraising for various charities over the years. This has involved sleeping rough for the night for the YMCA, cycling to Lapland (not literally), the 3 Peaks Challenge, climbing Mount Toubkal, and this year the team have successfully hiked up and down the mountains of Dingle, Ireland.

The Dingle Dash Challenge, as we like to call it, took place on the 8th and 9th June 2019, which saw the team hike for 22 hours covering 46miles and reaching a total elevation of 9,000 ft. The team hiked and climbed their way through heavy downpour, sunburn inducing sunshine, downhill bogs and scrambled up and across rocky terrains, and successfully raised over £5,700 for RoSPA and St Catherine’s Hospice!

The team of 17 included 7 staff members from Stocksigns, 2 from Gatwick Airport, 2 from RoSPA, 3 from Messagemaker Displays and 1 from Service Plus. We also had Pete and Nigel as our support team from the Stocksigns and Messagemaker Displays team.

Day 1 Distance: 26.5 miles Elevation Gain: 6,107 ft Time: 12h 25m

Our 12.5 hours hike began at the Brandon View Point with an easy start along the road side with a few rainbows to admire. This was short lived with heavy downpour and rocky terrains soon to follow.

The climb up Mount Brandon was in the clouds with some steep boulders to climb, and slim un-even paths to follow. The team made it to the summit, exhausted and wet but with a great sense of achievement. The journey down was cold and wet for a few hours until they emerged from the low clouds into beautiful sunshine and a rewarding view over Feohanagh before the 10 mile hike and to the finish line.
