Check out our intrepid Three Peaks team’s latest news
Last month, we revealed that our firm’s most ambitious charity challenge to date will, quite literally, be scaling new heights!
Three of our intrepid fundraisers will attempt to conquer the Three Peaks Challenge in just 24 hours, on 18 May 2019.The ‘Three Peaks’ are Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon – the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales. The challenge is to climb each of these three peaks – one after the other.
Our resolute trio of trekkers are Solicitors Andriy Buniak, Matthew Riding and our former Senior Accounts Assistant, Gemma Hoskin.
In order to complete the challenge within 24 hours, our three trekkers will need to climb Ben Nevis in five and a half hours, Scafell Pike in four and a half hours and Snowdon in around four hours – with the Welsh peak being scaled in darkness at around 2am!
With this in mind, our team have been putting in some much needed training. Their first session – what should have been a relatively easy hike in the Malvern Hills – turned out to be quite eventful, with scary pigeons and even scarier cows making an appearance.
The team have also realised that their map reading skills may need some work, after getting hopelessly lost!
You can read all about their exploits in their latest blog.
We are also delighted to announce chartered accountants and financial advisers, Harrison Beale & Owen, as a corporate sponsor – more on this in our next edition.
All money raised from our Three Peaks Challenge will support the fantastic work of The Air Ambulance Service. A target of £5,000 has been set, so if you would like to support our team, please visit our JustGiving page.
Every donation, no matter how small, will be greatly appreciated.
