Charity minded Society trekkers complete 3 Peaks Challenge!

12 Colleagues from the Sale branch about to start their trek in aid of British Heart Foundation

12 colleagues from the Society’s Sales team took on the National Three Peaks Challenge in aid of the British Heart Foundation. The ‘Hearts and Sole’ team climbed the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales – a total of 11,177 feet in altitude, matched almost exactly by the £11,000 they raised! The team, who conquered Ben Nevis in the highlands, Scafell Pike in the Lake District and Mount Snowdon in North Wales, covered around 1,000 miles, with 22 hours of driving and 24 miles of trekking in just 15 hours.
