CH&Co Group's procurement team conquers Three Peaks Challenge

The procurement team from CH&Co Group has raised more than £15,000 for charities Hospitality Action and Springboard after completing the Three Peaks Challenge.

After 28 hours, a cumulative walking distance of over 420km, a collective climbing height of over 30,000m, and encountering mist, wind, rain and sleet along the way, the team completed the third mountain.

The team included Andrew Atkinson, Danny Hind, Jon Williams, Ola Mitchell, Luke Rosier, Matt Kearslake, Leanne Johnson, Diane Broad and Anthony Noakes.

Jon Williams, group purchasing director at CH&Co Group, said: "The Three Peaks Challenge was an incredible experience. We are so proud to have successfully climbed the three mountains and to have raised such a great sum for Hospitality Action and Springboard. It was tough going at times and I think we encountered all weather possibilities throughout the 28 hours. But we were constantly driven by our determination to reach the finish and by the amazing support of colleagues, suppliers, families and friends. We would like to thank everyone for their enormous encouragement and generous donations."

Donations can still be made at Just Giving.
