A team from a Chester-based cooker company are gearing up to take on the Three Peaks challenge to raise support and awareness for three local charities.
The team from Rangecookers.co.uk will take up the UK challenge this spring and climb Snowdon for The North West Air Ambulance Service, Ben Nevis for Claire House Hospice and Scafell Pike for The West Cheshire Food Bank.
As part of their intensive training programme, some of the team: marketing manager Carl Elston; finance director Fin O’Leary and Kate Cox and Nikki Girvan from the brand’s PR and social media team at de Winter PR, braved the cold in February to tackle Scafell Pike.
The group will swap their showroom and office footwear for walking boots for the real challenge on Saturday, June 11 when they attempt to take on Britain’s highest peaks in just 24 hours.
Carl said: “We’ve set ourselves a real challenge attempting to climb more than 10,000 feet and walk over 26 miles in just one day, but our preparations are underway and the team is already training hard. I’m confident that with a copious supply of Jaffa Cakes and a vague idea where we’re heading, we’ll be fine.
“Seriously though, we are incredibly proud to be supporting not one but three fantastic charities who need our support to continue their great work – The North West Air Ambulance Service and The West Cheshire Food Bank both provide a vital service to the local community and Claire House Hospice provides all year round support to hundreds of families whose children won’t live to be adults.”
