Light firm helps Pennine trek

Have your say

A DESIGNER from a Sheffield lighting firm did his bit for charity by taking part in a gruelling trek in the Pennines.

Ryan Heald, from Olmec Advanced Materials, accompanied rock band Sound Driver as they scaled Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough while carrying all their regular concert equipment.

The band also played on top of the peaks, and Olmec provided LED lights to illuminate their performances.

The firm also provided sponsorship cash. Proceeds were donated to local mountain rescue volunteers.
