FARNHAM wealth management firm Saltus has raised £15,037 for the youth development charity Tall Ships Youth Trust.
More than 30 staff walked more than 600 miles, combined, through the New Forest to raise funds for the Portsmouth-based charity.
Tall Ships Youth Trust takes people aged 12 to 25 from disadvantaged backgrounds on residential youth sailing voyages. The money raised from Saltus’ event will fund a five-day voyage at sea for 12 young people.
Saltus has chosen Tall Ships Youth Trust to be its charity of the year and is planning further fundraising initiatives - both team and individual.
"This charity helps to turn lives around at a stage in life where it can make all the difference for the participants’ long-term futures," said Saltus partner Kay Ovenden.
"As a keen sailor, I know the benefits of the experience of being out there on the oceans, subject to the vagaries of nature - it really does build character.
"I am very pleased we are supporting this small, local charity - it was a great team effort from everyone who took part to raise funds for this fantastic cause."
