Nine members of staff from Sheffield-based President Engineering Group (PEGL) completed the national Three Peaks Challenge last month, raising over £3,000 for Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity.
The majority of the team completed the challenge within 24 hours, which started at Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in Scotland, then Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in England and finally Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales the following day.
John Waddington, operations director at PEGL, said: “It was great that so many of our staff took part in the Three Peaks Challenge. It was extremely tough, but we encouraged each other and we enjoyed ourselves. We have had a great response to our fundraising efforts and we are delighted to be able to raise this money for a very worthy local charity.”
The nine climbers were John Waddington, Duncan Gaskin, Chris Brown, Nathan Wallhead, Jack Pickford, Martin Garnett, Gary Cooper, Richard Nicholson and Alex Brown.
They were supported by Marie Cooper, finance director and Frances Crosland, commercial manager, who drove the minibus. The minibus was kindly donated for the challenge by AFP Van Hire & Sales of Sheffield.
