Fulcrum Commercial Kitchens’ director, David Burnett, will be climbing the Diga di Luzzone Dam in Switzerland to raise money for the Aid4Orphans charity, run by Cornwall Catering Equipment’s MD, Peter Bragg.
On 11 June next year, Burnett will be scaling the dam’s highest climbing wall in the world, at 545ft tall, which features a line of artificial holds arching up the centre of the face. This is a tough test, as the wall has five pitches which become increasingly steep and exposed, with the top two slightly overhanging.
Ahead of this, Burnett will also be undertaking the Tour of Pembrokeshire along with Julian Shine, MD of fellow distributor, Shine Food Machinery, on 23 April 2016.
The cycling route is over 100 miles long, with Burnett saying that the 75 mile version he did last year was “the hardest thing my legs have ever done”.
However, he feels he wants to keep Aid4Orphans projects alive, commenting: “Peter Bragg’s charity, Aid4Orphans, may not have the media-muscle of Pudsey Bear or Bob Geldof behind it but here is a cause that really deserves support.
“Like me, Peter runs his own catering equipment business but the difference is that he somehow manages to put all his spare time into running Aid4Orphans.
“He has a big heart and does everything in his power to pull vulnerable children out of desperate circumstances, putting them back on the road to emotional stability with love and companionship and providing an education to better their futures.”
