A High Cab minibus was provided free of charge to help the nine employees from supply chain specialists, Wincanton Plc, take part in the daunting Three Peaks Challenge in June in support of Cancer Research UK. The troop had set themselves a £2, 000 target to achieve which they have since exceeded with the help of family, friends and colleagues who all dug deep to help them reach their goal.
With additional support from Transline employee, Paul Rowe, in the driving seat along with Wincanton’s Iain Menzies, they kept one step ahead of the walkers supplying them with much needed refreshments along the way.
The nine-strong team completed the gruelling challenge in an impressive 23 hours, 58 minutes travelling an incredible 1, 100 miles between them which is the equivalent of 108, 000 steps.
The entire team were appreciative of everyone’s hard work and dedication for making the challenge such a success.
Wincanton General Manager, Tony McHardy, said: “The team would like to thank all of their friends, family, colleagues and in particular corporate sponsorship by SHB Hire & Transline for their generosity and best wishes, the target of £2,000 has now been exceeded and we are overwhelmed with the support that has been extended.”
