The challenge will push them to the limit as they aim to climb the highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales (Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon) within just 24 hours.
The team are doing it to support our local chosen charities. Cobalt does amazing work to help people affected by cancer, dementia and other conditions. Hope supports young people when a loved one is seriously ill. They're there from the point of diagnosis for however long they're needed, whatever the outcome for the patient. Everything the team raises will be fund matched by the IRESS Foundation, our global initiative which aims to help those less fortunate by supporting regional community initiatives with volunteering and fundraising.
Our commercial analyst Megan Smith, one of the climbers, said: “The aim is to start climbing Ben Nevis at 7am on Saturday 7 July, travel down to Scafell Pike once Ben Nevis is completed, then onwards travel to Snowdon with the aim to be at the bottom of Snowdon by 7am on Sunday 8 July. This timing means climbing Snowdon by moonlight. Two other IRESS volunteers will kindly be our drivers.”
The team have undertaken lots of training over the past few weeks and we wish them all the best!
