We’re at the half way stage of our 12 months of charity campaign and so far our amazing team, supporters and volunteers has helped us raise over £4,000.

This month we hit the River Severn for our canoe challenge, as a group of Pensionlite staff make the 12 mile trip from Montford Bridge to Shrewsbury.

The team at Hire a Canoe has kindly donated us three canoes to use, and if the weather is kind it should be a picturesque voyage through the Shropshire countryside.

The journey is predicted to take between four and a half to five hours – but we like a challenge here at Pensionlite, so are determined to better it.

This year we have been raising money for Hope House, Severn Hospice, Lingen Davies, Compton Care and Jayne Sargent Foundation in memory of former Pensionlite company founder Andy Hawthorne.
