Gareth Higgins

I am the Managing Director of KMF Group based in Chesterton. We employ over 500 people both locally and in our manufacturing facility in Trencin, Slovakia and I am very much committed to supporting our local community.

Very apprehensively I have agreed to take part in a challenge that will be both physically and mentally incredibly tough for me, however, it’s nowhere near as tough as the extreme sleep deprivation that many of the parents of children cared for by The Donna Louise experience, and for whom total exhaustion is just the way of life.

The Challenge is Tower to Tower 2! Having supported Travers Wallett (Our Head of Business Development) in 2015 when the team rowed from the Tower of London to the Eiffel Tower in Paris, I thought it was time I did my bit! I’ve got a lot of work to do on my fitness but I am hoping the teamwork element will pull me through.

I’ve set myself a significant fundraising total that I hope I can achieve, it will certainly motivate me to train hard and complete the challenge if I do. I’ve organised a number of events to help me reach the target - Quiz, Chinese Meal, Prosecco tasting and Bingo to name a few. If you can support these events and the main challenge itself it will be greatly appreciated.

The Race

A non-stop, 560km challenge by bikes, boats and boots.

The team of 12 will travel by bikes, by boats and on foot in 3 stages covering road, sea and country lane from Paris to London.

Over these 4 long, long days, Team Tower to Tower will face severe fatigue, sleep deprivation, sea sickness, blisters, aching muscles and mental fatigue.
