No ‘property ladder’ for this climb

Posted on June 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Battling through the elements for more than 24 hours, climbing the three highest peaks in England, Scotland and Wales may not be everyone’s idea of fun – but having completed the Three Peaks Challenge, GVA Grimley’s Healthcare team partner, Robert Belcher can confirm that the experience was one to remember. “I can safely say I would rather have been at home, enjoying a glass of good wine,” said Mr Belcher, having accomplished the challenge. “However, giving up such luxuries as part of this team building exercise made us concentrate on the task in hand.” The group of 12 from the Bristol office of the property adviser took on the challenge to raise money for CLIC Sargent, a major UK cancer charity, for which the team raised more than £5,000. The Three Peaks Challenge involves climbing the highest peaks in England (Scafell, 978m), Scotland (Ben Nevis, 1,344 m) and Wales (Snowdon, 1,085 m), as well as driving some 450 miles in between – all within a target 24 hour period.
