Steve Vick International prepare for the National Three Peaks Challenge
April 22, 2016
Steve Vick International (SVI) is currently preparing to take part in the National Three Peaks Challenge.
The challenge will involve 12 SVI employees, including Steve and Angela Vick, climbing the three highest peaks in the UK, in just 24 hours! The challenge will start by climbing Ben Nevis in Scotland, then Scafell Pike in the Lake District and finally Snowdon in Wales. The team will walk 42k and a height of 3407m in total. The aim of completing this challenge is to raise funds for a local charity, Dorothy House Hospice (dorothyhouse.org.uk).
Dorothy House Hospice is an independent charity who deliver compassionate care and support in our local community, supporting people of 18years or older who have a life-limiting illness.
The focus for Dorothy House is quality of life, so patients can live well and die well. Care is given whenever they need it: at home, in the hospice or at one of the outreach centres.
Sadly, several years ago a Steve Vick member of staff who was terminally ill was cared for by Dorothy House. The positive effect of the care provided by Dorothy House on his state of mind made a very big impression and Steve and Angela have been supporters ever since.
100% of the money raised will go to Dorothy House Hospice and donations can be made through the Steve Vick International Just Giving page – www.justgiving.com/Steve-Vick-International.
