A group of employees from catering equipment manufacturer Smeg are to scale three of Britain’s biggest peaks next month in aid of charity.
20 staff from the dishwasher and refrigeration brand’s Oxfordshire HQ will raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support by taking on the ‘Three Peaks 24-hour Challenge’ on 15-16 June.
The task involves climbing England’s Scafell Pike, Mount Snowdon in Wales and Scotland’s Ben Nevis inside 24 hours. The trek will entail an ascent of 26 miles and involve travelling over 450 miles in between.
John Davies, brand manager at Smeg UK, says the team is determined to do all it can to raise as much money as possible for the charity, particularly as one of their long-standing colleagues has been battling the illness over the last 12 months.
“Everybody will of Macmillan and the excellent work it does across the UK to support individuals affected by cancer. It is a great cause that deserves all the help it can get,” he said.
