Inchcape UK finance team climb Snowdon in aid of baby unit after tragedy

STAFF from Inchcape UK climbed Snowdon in aid of a hospital baby unit after a colleague and her husband suffered a tragedy.

The 18-strong team from the Volkswagen and Porsche finance department ascended Wales’s tallest mountain last month in recognition of the support that the Snowdrop Suite at Wythenshawe Hospital gave Janine Quibell, accountant at Inchcape UK Volkswagen Manchester, and her husband Elliott when their daughter Arla was stillborn in November 2017.

Inchcape UK’s financial controller, Ange Leah, led the fundraising campaign and started it by running the Greater Manchester Marathon in April.

She said: ‘Without the support and facilities provided by the Snowdrop team, the precious time my amazing friend and colleague Janine and her lovely husband Elliott spent with Arla would not have been possible.

‘The Snowdrop Suite is funded by charity donations, and we want to do all we can to help ensure other parents who experience this tragedy get the chance to spend as much time as possible with their baby – moments they can cherish forever.’

Donations can still be made via the JustGiving page at
