Five employees from TR Fastenings are gearing up to scale the UK’s three highest mountains this July, in a bid to raise £2,000 for Cancer Research UK.
‘The TRekkers’, who work in the sales, purchasing and quality departments at the company’s headquarters in Uckfield, and are aged between 24 and 52, will attempt to climb Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in England and Snowdon in Wales within a 48-hour period.
This will involve 27 miles of hiking and a combined ascent of 3,000 metres.
“We wanted to do a physical challenge as a team, and the Three Peaks Challenge looked ideal,” said Rob Hall, who will be accompanied by Steve Wallis, Daniel Reardon, Ross Delmon and Nick Hardstone, plus Andy Dawes who will drive the trekkers during the 1,400 miles round trip.
Rob added: “We aim to be the first TR team to complete the challenge but hopefully not the last.”
TR Fastenings is supporting the adventurers by providing suitable transport and also matching any donations up to £1,000.
The staff will begin their challenge on Friday, July 22. Donations are much appreciated. To help sponsor the team, please visit the TR Fastenings 3 Peak Challenge JustGiving page.
