Jurassic Fibre raise over £4700 for the RD&E Charity

Jurassic Fibre, a local broadband provider, have raised over £4,700 for the RD&E Charity after walking 103 miles from Ivybridge to Lynmouth.

Members of the company wanted to take on the Two Moors Way challenge to raise money for the Stroke Unit at the Royal Devon & Exeter NHS Foundation Trust (RD&E) as they have been affected by strokes in the past.

James Day, GIS Technician at Jurassic Fibre, said: “The Two Moors Way was a great opportunity for us to get out and see the best of the South West, whilst helping a fantastic local charity along the way. From the remote wilds of Dartmoor, through farmland and forest, lanes and lakes, it was and felt like a proper adventure for the team and a huge accomplishment overall. Some of the highlights were cooking under the stars, wild paddling in rivers, dropping into sleepy villages for supplies and of course, our unofficial 8th member Ruby, a two-year-old cockapoo, that probably completed the whole distance on the first day. Was it tough? Yes. Would we do it again? Watch this space!"

Michael Maltby, CEO and Founder, Jurassic Fibre, said: “We are very proud of the team who took part in the Two Moors Way walk in April. They have raised a huge amount for the RD&E’s Stroke Unit, a worthy cause which is close to our hearts.

Ian Roome, Head of Fundraising at the RD&E Charity, said: “We’re so grateful to the team from Jurassic Fibre for taking on this incredible challenge and raising money for the stroke unit at the RD&E.”
