The Rational team that took on the Three Peaks Challenge, climbing Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon in 24 hours, has completed its goal.
Nine members took part in the challenge on 28 July – seven climbers and two drivers. Amongst them were four top performers who achieved their goal within the time limit: Graham Kille (technical sales director), Tom Bentham (corporate chef), Will Matthews (customer service technician) and Lee Harding (key accounts director).
Despite the glorious weather of the past few weeks, the team experienced terrible conditions, with rain hail and high winds. But they ploughed on and completed the challenge with time to spare.
Rational’s team were walking for the charity Hospitality Action and their endeavours have so far raised £1,282. Hospitality Action is the hospitality industry’s charity, helping past and present workers of all ages who are in crisis. It offers financial aid and information and also supports a youth guidance scheme educating on alcohol and drugs misuse.
Marketing director Adam Knights commented: “Despite the appalling weather conditions that the team faced, this was a great experience for us all. We would like to thank our dealer partners, customers and staff who have donated money to our team and in turn to this great industry cause.”
