Steve Vick International raise over £11,000 for Dorothy House Hospice by climbing the three highest peaks in the UK
June 15, 2016
A team of 12 Steve Vick International employees, including company founders Steve and Angela Vick, have completed the gruelling National Three Peaks Challenge in aid of Dorothy House Hospice.
The challenge involved climbing the three highest peaks in the UK; Ben Nevis, Skafell Pike and Snowdon.
The team started Ben Nevis at dusk on Saturday morning and finished climbing Snowden on Sunday afternoon with any rest taken on the mini bus in-between mountains. In total the team walked/climbed 42k and a height of 3407m.
The challenge was an epic adventure that included two broken down mini buses and injuries; nonetheless everyone finished with an immense sense of achievement and were delighted to support a brilliant charity.
Over £11,000 was raised, with the fundraising process supported by Henrietta Beard, Corporate Fundraiser at Dorothy House.
All the money will go directly to the charity, and will help make a difference to terminally ill patients and their families.
