A team of local property professionals completed an arduous challenge last week in aid of Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW).
Richard Channing, Isabella Deacon and Sue Dyer of Atwell Martin and Emma Faraday and Richard Keen of Hertford Investors took on the National Three Peaks Challenge, supported by drivers Martyn Kelly and Mark Copleston of Atwell Martin.
The trial involved climbing the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales – Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in the Lake District and Mount Snowdon in Wales.
The team travelled more than 450 miles, walked 25 miles and climbed around 10,000 feet, narrowly missing their 24 hour target by just 50 minutes.
Atwell Martin Partnership Secretary Richard Channing says: “The challenge was tougher than we expected due to horrendous weather conditions on Scafell Pike and Mount Snowdon.
“We were disappointed not to finish within 24 hours, but delighted to have raised much needed funds for the incredible work of Children’s Hospice South West.”
The Barbican-based property company has chosen CHSW as its charity of the year and the Three Peaks Challenge forms part of a year of activities.
Richard adds: “This is the first time we have nominated a chosen charity and we’re really pleased to be supporting CHSW, particularly during their silver anniversary year.”
The charity operates three hospices in Cornwall, North Devon and North Somerset and provides care for children with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions and their families. Its mission is simply to make the most of short and precious lives.
More than £1800 has been raised so far and further donations can be made at: https://www.justgiving.com/AtwellMartinPlymouth/
