Flannery Plant Hire are focused on giving back to communities by helping important causes across the country.

This often sees us taking part in events designed to raise money for charity, and on the 23rd of April this year a team from the company undertook the task of walking eighteen miles in the name of the Pace Centre.

Since our establishment 50 years ago, family is at the heart of all that we do and we’re proud to support The Pace Centre with their mission working to transform the lives of children and young people who have neurodisabilities, such as cerebral palsy. They, and we, believe that every child is capable of progressing no matter what physical or sensory challenges they face, and they aim to help these children reach their full potential to be as independent as they can be in their futures.

Pace Walk - Team Flannery 2022

The team of nine featured Ben Seabright, Chelsey Hutchinson, Chris Matthews, Malcolm Cator, Lucie Alexander, Liam Hills, Paul Tuohy, Kevin Witten and, arguably most importantly, Nebbi the dog. They started out in Watlington, Oxfordshire and braved ‘The Ridgeway’, travelling through high terrain as well as battling the UK wind and sunshine, passing some of the HS2 site and ending their journey in Wendover.

Upon completing the walk, team captain and Flannery ambassador for the Pace Centre , Ben Seabright, commented:

“Doing this walk was a rewarding experience in many ways – it was great to see some incredible views and the progress that HS2 are making using Flannery machines. However, the most important thing was raising money and awareness for such an important cause and we’re all very proud to have been a part of that.”

The team raised a whopping £2,280 for the Pace Centre – but it’s not too late to donate to this phenomenal cause. Every penny counts, and you can donate now through our dedicated JustGiving page here.
