Northampton firm's colleagues take on Three Peaks Challenge
A team of nine colleagues are aiming high with their newest fundraising adventure, climbing to the top of mainland Britain's highest mountains.
The workers from Travis Perkins in Northampton will be taking on the Three Peaks Challenge in July, aiming to raise £10,000 Macmillan cancer support.
Tackling the three highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales – Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowden – in just 24 hours the team will walk 27 miles, climbing 9,800 feet.
The adventurous team is aiming to raise £10,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support to fund the charity’s vital practical, medical, emotional and financial support services that help ensure no one has to face cancer alone.
Adam Kent, Business development manager at Travis Perkins Managed Services in, says: “I’m really looking forward to taking on the challenge but it’s definitely going to be a tough 24 hours with a lot of walking.
“Macmillan Cancer Support does brilliant work and we’re hoping to do our bit and raise a significant amount of money to help the charity.
“Our target is £10,000 and we will be very grateful for any donations at all.”
Leyla Onal, Partnership Manager at Macmillan Cancer Support added: “I’d like to wish the whole team from Travis Perkins Managed Services a huge good luck for their intrepid challenge.
“Whilst scaling Britain’s three highest mountains in just 24 hours is a huge personal endeavor, it will also make a significant difference to the lives of people affected by cancer and will help Macmillan ensure that no one has to face cancer alone.”
The team includes Stuart Hough, managing director; James Clack, sales and marketing director; Adam Kent, business development manager; Andrew Craig; account manager; Gemma McRae, bid manager; Martin Thomas, project manager; Phil Jones, business development executive; Paul Lonsdale, regional sales manager; and James Meehan, data analyst.
