The TP team will scale the height of Britain’s three highest mountains to raise £10,000 for charity partner Macmillan Cancer Support.
A team of nine colleagues from Travis Perkins Managed Services, will be taking on the Three Peaks Challenge this July – aiming to raise £10,000 for leading cancer support charity Macmillan.
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.
They will be tackling the three highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales – Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowden – in just 24 hours. The challenge involves walking 27 miles and climbing 9,800 feet.
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.”
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. On behalf of everyone here at Macmillan, a huge thank you for your support!”
