The 9 day challenge will be taken on by Mark and Lauren Williams, a dad and daughter team from Kent from Monday 6th to Wednesday 15th September 2021, in memory of their wonderful Dad and Grandad who fell sick and passed away in February 2019.
The challenge is targeted with raising £5000 for the selected charities. The funds will be split between the two causes: firstly, going to The Pilgrims Hospice in Kent, a charity within our own community. The charity provides vital services to the local community including care of those who are in the later stages of an incurable illness and support for their family and friends.
As a company build by former Police officers; with over 200 years of collective UK Law enforcement experience and career long involvement in the public services sector, a charity such at The National Firefighter Charity give us great pride to support. The charity works incredibly hard to support the health and wellbeing of fire service personnel, past, present, and future.
When possible, we not only support worthy causes financially but through the skills and resources accessible to the business. Our team will be providing Mark and Lauren with all the technical equipment they require, including a tracker so their location can be monitored throughout the challenge, you can check their tracker progress on the Facebook page. The challenge entails running 250KM of the South West Coastal Path between Perranporth and Mevagissey.

Last week Securitatem Installations received a finalist place at the British Security Awards 2021 for Installer of the Year. The event organised by the British Security Industry Association will be held online on the 30th June and celebrates the finest achievements of the UK’s security industry.
Securitatem Installation received recognition for its recent work with the Canterbury Oast Trust, a Kent based charity who operates a family friendly farm which supports vulnerable adults. The organisation required immediate assistance upon receiving intelligence that its livestock was under threat during the early stages on the coronavirus pandemic, which saw food shortages hit the country. The company stepped in to mitigate any safety issues, install all necessary security systems and sought no monetary gain from a charity, which was already financially affected by the national lockdown.
The group also received acclaim earlier this year, when Securitatem Consultancy became a finalist for Outstanding Event Security Team at the Outstanding Security Performance Awards 2021 in February. This accolade was a result of the team’s superior performance during the 15th Biennial General Conference for the World Association of Nuclear Operators (WANO) in London.
Securitatem Group CEO Joe McGee said “We select the finest individuals for our workforce, and this is reflected in the incredible response we receive from our clients and now from the industries annual awards. Receiving two finalist nominations during a challenging year for all is an astonishing achievement and something Securitatem Group is extremely proud of.”
