Charity fundraising is a big part of life here at Stocksigns Ltd. and Messagemaker Displays and each year we aim to go bigger and better.

This year, in our Slovakia Summits challenge, we have set our sights on climbing the highest mountain in Poland, Mount Rysy, from the Slovenian border as well as a trek through Paradise Valley – all in just two days. The aim is to raise vital funds for our chosen charity The Children’s Trust – and we need your help!

The Slovakia Summits challenge will start on Friday 30th June with a 18km trek through Paradise Valley and its variety of valleys, gullies and ravines. After a night’s rest, the team will then head on to Mount Rysy, the highest mountain in Poland and located in the Tatra National Park. Of its three summits, we’re looking to ascend the north-western summit at 2500m.

The team consists of 8 employees who are up for the challenge and have been undertaking practice climbs and walks together in preparation for the main event.

Danny Adamson, MD, who will be part of the group commented:

“We never shy away from a challenge and this year it’s going to be the biggest one we’ve faced with two separate locations in two days. We’re all really passionate about giving back to the local community and now more than ever charities need the support of donations. The challenges we set ourselves here are tough, but we always rally together and it’s going to be a fantastic experience for a really worthwhile cause.”

The Slovakia Summits challenge will raise money for The Children’s Trust, the UK’s leading charity for children with injury. Based in Tadworth and local to the Stocksigns Ltd. and Messagemaker Signs HQ, the Trust runs a range of specialist care, education and therapy services for children and young people from across the UK and the UK’s largest rehabilitation centre for children with acquired brain injury (ABI).


Laura Carter, our Sales Account Manager, shared her own reasons for taking part in the challenge:

“I couldn’t resist signing up to such an incredible challenge and a once in a lifetime opportunity. The training we have been doing as a team has been brilliant, seeing colleagues outside of work and giving each other the motivation needed to carry on with the challenge. We’ve all been pushing ourselves to do the best we can, and it’s been far from easy. For me personally, this has been hugely outside of my comfort zone.

“The Children’s Trust do incredible work day in and day out with high needs children. Our Production Manager shared some inspirational stories with me about children who have life-altering injuries yet continue to work hard every day. Ultimately this is why we are doing it, and I’m so proud to be working with such a brilliant team who are collectively supporting an inspiring cause.”

Our hiking boots are at the ready and we can’t wait. Should you wish to support the team and help us to achieve something wonderful for The Children’s Trust – then please, please make a donation today. Every little helps!
