Trefor Davies, chairman at Lonap, is walking from St Bees in Cumbria on the West Coast of England, to Robin Hood’s Bay on the East Coast, to raise money for Cancer Research.
Trefor wanted to make his journey “a highly interactive multimedia experience”, by allowing his followers to track his progress in real time. Pangea have provided him with a tracking device that not only informs his followers of his location, but also records data about environmental conditions.
Trefor said “It’s great to work with a company that is willing to get involved and use their technology to raise awareness for causes like this.”
In an increasingly connected world, Pangea believes that IoT and M2M can do more than just connect devices, appliances or vehicles. For Pangea, #ConnectingTrefor is about connecting people with a great cause.
Dan Cunliffe, Managing Director of Pangea said, “Trefor has an immense enthusiasm for life. His challenging walk to raise money for cancer research simply exemplifies that. We are happy we can be a part of this charity. It is the first of our many corporate social responsibility initiatives.”
Trefor will be walking from 1st May to 12th May in memory of his mother and his wife’s father, and welcomes anyone who wants to join him along the way.
