InstaVolt Staff achieved the amazing feat of walking from the most southern InstaVolt charger at The Foundry in Porthleven, Cornwall to the InstaVolt hub at Keflavik Airport in Iceland – covering a whopping total distance of 2489.6km throughout April. 106.5km over our target!

The challenge was organised in support of the amazing Ronald McDonald House Charities, which do incredible work for families across the UK when they need it the most. So far, we’ve raised £390 and there is still time to donate to this very worthy cause. You can donate to the RMHC UK using our Just Giving link. All proceeds will go direct to the charity:

The RMHC UK is a charity that has a place close to the heart of InstaVolt, and following the completion of the challenge our staff member Alan Crawford spoke about the incredible support the charity provided for their daughter:

“Ronald McDonald House at Alder Hey will always hold a special place for us.  Our daughter Emily was only a few days old when we were first referred to Alder Hey, and after a few weeks we learned that she would need to have major heart surgery.

She was 10 weeks old, and as new parents we were still just trying to cope day to day.

Being able to stay on site at Ronald McDonald house for the week was a life saver, allowing us to take turns being in ICU with Emily whilst the other grabbed a few hours’ sleep, so that one of us could be with her 24/7. The comfort of knowing the ward could contact you and you were only ever a few minutes away.

Until you’re in the situation, it’s difficult to understand just how significant it is.

We were fortunate to be able to stay with them again a couple of years ago when Emily was 10 years old, and we found ourselves reflecting a lot on those early days. We’re so grateful that you’re supporting such a wonderful cause.”
