This September, a team of brave REHAU employees successfully completed the climb of the three highest peaks in England, Wales and Scotland. The team tackled the three peak challenge as part of its mission to raise money for charity, Scope.
From different departments and locations, 27 people from the company climbed Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon – walking over 26 miles and climbing more than 10,000 feet! The climb has seen a fantastic £7,500 raised for the charity so far!
The trek saw the team walk in low temperatures, darkness, wind and rain on Saturday evening at Scafell Pike and encounter tough terrain, mist, and another downpour in the early hours of the Sunday morning on Snowdon.
Of those that took part in the challenge, Arthur Dylan Roberts, Kevin O’Neill, Sam Tynan, Richard Hardstaff, Andy Pinnock and Faye Tompkins represented the Windows Solutions team.
Sam comments: “Reaching the summit of Ben Nevis and punching through the cloud layer to a stunning view was a truly fantastic experience. The challenge was also a great opportunity to meet new people in different sectors of the business. Despite the difficulties of waking up at the crack of dawn and encountering the Welsh drizzle, I’d certainly have another go at it and possibly try and get them bagged in under 24 hours!”
To ensure the team was safe through the challenge, REHAU partnered up with Alexander Adventures. With a wealth of experience in leading teams through expeditions such as the Three Peaks Challenge – both here in the UK and internationally – Alexander Adventures kept team spirits high and ensured that everyone was healthy and safe throughout the challenge.
To assist the walkers in raising money, a fundraising event was held each month from April to August. All money raised will go to Scope, REHAU UK’s charity of the year 2018.
