Three Peaks Challenge for Steve and his chums

1st September 2016

On Saturday October 15th our Inside Sales Exec, Steve Pincott will join three former school friends James, Ben and Tom in attempting the well-recognised Three Peaks Challenge...and all within a 24 hour time-frame. The Three Peaks Challenge involves climbing the three highest peaks in England, Wales and Scotland and in between climbs they will eat up some of those precious 24 hours in getting to the next mountain. Steve and his chums are joining an organised group so they won't have to drive themselves and their orienteering skills won't be put to the test!

Steve’s preparations began at the start of August with gentle hill walks in the Cotswolds where he lives and short walk most mornings – even before work he tells us. He is building up his fitness in the gym, particularly working on those muscles that will come in to play on steep climbs. As the weeks progress he will do some more serious hill walking to ensure he is at peak fitness and that those new boots are comfortably bedded in!

This is the first time Steve, or indeed, any of his walking chums – has done a serious hill walk and they will all be attempting the challenge to raise funds for their individual charity of choice. Steve chose to support Prostate Cancer UK after a family member went through treatment for prostate cancer. For his relative an early spotting of the disease and subsequent treatment resulted in an ‘all clear’ diagnosis.

We will report back in October with an interview with Steve and a grand total for his chosen charity. A few facts about those mountains:

Snowdon, in Wales - 1085 metres above sea level
Scafell Pike, in England - 978 metres above sea level
Ben Nevis, in Scotland - 1345 metres above sea level

    We've been helping a local college out with material for their GCSE Art and Resistant Materials coursework for a few years now and when they contacted us recently to ask if we could continue to support them, we were only too happy to offer some graphical board. With tight constraints on local authority budgets these days and the juggling act head teachers have to perform-Craig Curtis, Hamilton College's Assistant Head of Faculty and Teacher of Design Technology has always been greatly appreciative of the support we can offer.
