Fleet teams scale the heights for charity

COMPANIES from all sides of the fleet industry climbed the heights of generosity when they scaled Britain's highest mountains and helped to raise hundreds of thousands of pounds for charity. Teams from all over the country took part in one of several challenges, including the Four Peaks Challenge in aid of the Wooden Spoon Society, which supports children and young adults with disabilities.

More than 50 teams took part in the event to climb the three highest peaks in Britain and the highest in Southern Ireland -Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike, Snowdon and Carantouhill. In all, £393,363 was raised and fleet industry teams included Vauxhall - which sponsored the event - Vauxhall Finance, Frosts Vauxhall dealers, Walon, Arthur Andersen, Deloitte & Touche, Freshfields, Andersen Consulting, Aon Consulting, KPMG and Lombard North Central. Vauxhall provided transport and PHH All Star supplied fuel.

A Three Peaks Challenge was also supported by the fleet industry, with Blick and Automotive Leasing tackling the highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales to raise money for Children's Aid Direct. Automotive Leasing raised £4,000 and Blick £5,000 with Volkswagen, Citroen and Land Rover providing team vehicles.
