The early mornings, aching limbs and blisters didn’t stop the Specials Team at Autoglass who completed the National Three Peaks Challenge this summer in aid of children’s charity ‘Together for Short Lives’.
Seven colleagues from the Specialist Vehicle team at Autoglass all gathered from across the UK to climb Ben Nevis, Mount Snowdon and Scafell Pike together. The team completed the challenge in just under 39 hours, and with the support of colleagues, friends and family, they raised an incredible £3808.63 for their chosen charity, ‘Together for Short Lives.’
“I am thrilled to have climbed the National Three Peaks Challenge in aid of such a worthwhile charity. This was one of the toughest, yet most exhilarating challenges of my life,” said Mark Alexander, national operations manager. “Knowing the money we raised will be used to improve the lives of terminally ill children and their families, throughout the UK, is the best part of all.”
Jeremy Rochfort, national sales manager, added, “I took part in this event for ‘Together for Short Lives’ because I really believe in their cause. It was also a fantastic opportunity for real teamwork and collaboration across our business teams, with members of sales and operations working together. This all echoes our business purpose, which is helping to solve people’s problems with real care.”
