On June 22 2012 Inchcape UK are planning on completing the UK Three Peaks in 24 hours Challenge to raise money for BEN, the automotive industry charity. Inchcape have put together 8 teams, representing each of their brands, a team of Retail Support staff and a team comprised of volunteers from across all brands who will climb as part of the CEO team. From their efforts, Inchcape hope to raise £10,000 for BEN.
The Three Peaks Challenge takes on the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales and covers an astonishing 40kms, involves climbing 3,400m and traveling more than 556 miles between the locations.
The challenge begins in one of Scotland’s most scenic areas: Glen Nevis Valley, where the teams will climb Ben Nevis, the largest mountain in the UK, standing at 1,344m. Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in England standing at 978m is the second peak and finally the challengers take on the highest mountain in Wales: Snowdon, standing at 1,085m.
Inchcape’s head of internal communications, Kerry Howard, stated “Following the success of our Fleet Division completing the UK Three Peaks last year, we thought we would make the challenge bigger with the CEO setting a challenge across the UK business, raising vital funds for BEN, the automotive industry charity. As a result, we now have 100 members of staff who have signed up to complete the challenge on 22 June 2012. Each team is now in training and the competition is fierce.”
Kelly Neal, events manager said, “BEN appreciates the efforts people go to in their attempts to raise funds for the automotive industry charity. Completing the Three Peaks Challenge will be a great achievement – we wish Inchcape the best of luck.”
