North Wales army surplus retailer Denigh Army Surplus is celebrating 12 months of the DAS Resilience monthly challenge with a charity awards ceremony and dinner, to be held at the Village Hotel in Ewloe on Saturday July 28th.
Polar explorer and mountaineer Kevin Gaskell has been secured as the guest speaker for the event, and awards will be given to challenge entrants who have shown themselves to be strong, tough and resilient.
Tickets are £50.00 each, or tables of ten can be bought at £45.00 per person. Money raised from the event will go to North East Wales Search and Rescue (NEWSAR).
Rich Brady from Denbigh Army Surplus says:
“We’ve got a NEWSAR charity box on the counter and all sales of Outdoor Enthusiast magazine go straight in it, but with most of our customers being online I didn’t feel we were contributing much.
As a mountaineer myself, it’s very reassuring to know that there a volunteer groups like NEWSAR around to help ensure everyone gets home safely, but it’s not all mountain rescue… The majority of NEWSAR call outs aren’t to mountaineers or climbers, but to lost individuals that can often be confused and scared.
If this dinner can make more people aware of that and raise some money for them at the same time, then it will be well worth the effort.”
