As a company, we are extremely fortunate to have a fantastic team of people and experience some positive business results. As a form of recognition we support a number of organisations locally and internationally.
PACE Networks is proud to support Charlie Martell, the Charitable Adventurer. Having trained as an Army bomb-disposal expert, Charlie spent several years working with British-based mine-clearance charity HALO Trust. This included spells in Cambodia, Angola and the Republic of Georgia. Charlie’s first charitable adventures included being part of a three-man team in the 2005 Polar Challenge ski-race to the North Pole, and then the following year he headed a four-man team to row between New York and Mevagissey, Cornwall, claiming two Guinness World Records in the process. Together the two challenges raised more than £250,000 for the Meningitis Trust.
Charlie’s current planned charitable adventures include Flying to Freedom, Return to the Pacific, and DW2016. Visit the new Pacific 2018 website to remain up-to-date with Charlie’s latest challenge, or visit his website here to learn more about previous adventures.

The club is run by a group of dedicated volunteers who offer a great deal of time to ensure that the club flourishes.
Toria Hare completed the difficult challenge of walking the 177 miles of the Offa’s Dyke trail raising an incredible and well-deserved £2,516! The funds raised will help BRACE, a Bristol-based charity that supports dementia research.
The charity’s main aims are to help medical science come to understand what causes dementia in its various forms, achieve earlier diagnosis of dementia, and find new and more powerful treatments.

James King and his team ‘Kings & Co’ successfully took part in the Relay for Life Cirencester on 29th July, 2017.

Luckily, there were only a few showers throughout the night and the team have so far raised an incredible £2,719!
