Nine Inchcape Fleet Solutions’ employees raised just shy of £2,000 for road safety charity Brake by climbing three of the UK’s highest peaks in one day. And the final amount was boosted to just under £4,000 when directors and staff held a fundraising day.
The ‘Inchcape Fleet Solutions Climb Team’ climbed Pen y Ghent (2,273 feet), Whernside (2,415 feet) and Ingleborough,(2,372 feet), which together make up Yorkshire’s Three Peaks Challenge - a 24-mile circular challenge walk and a climb of more than 7,000 feet starting and finishing in Horton in Ribblesdale.
The staff that completed the challenge were led by customer services director David Graham and included business improvement and implementation project manager Tim Kett, rental manager Lucy Spencer, customer services manager Sonya Russell, customer service advisors Emma Jackson, Rachael Keywood and Alfie Ayling, information services support co-ordinator Max Ghest, and accident management advisor Ricky Roost.
Inchcape Fleet Solutions is a corporate donor to Brake. Its managing director Terry Bartlett said: “Charitable support is close to the heart of the company and the Three Peaks Challenge and related fundraising day was an excellent way of demonstrating our commitment to road safety.
“The company has held a number of fundraising days in the past but this is the first time that we have linked one to an additional activity. The total raised was fantastic and will be donated to a very worthy cause.”
