Team at NRG completed three of the highest peaks in Britain.in one go!

Team at NRG completed three of the highest peaks in Britain.in one go!
 
An energetic team from NRG completed the Three Peaks Challenge on 11th and 12th June.   The team climbed Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowden witnessing glorious sunshine, dropping temperatures, hail, rain and even snow at the top of Ben Nevis, with five of the team members completing all three peaks within an astonishing 23 hours and all team members managing to complete the challenge within 27 hours!
 
It took months of training and organising, but was well worth it as they managed to smash their fundraising target of 6,500 just as the group was about to leave Grey Street in Newcastle!  The team at NRG has so far raised over 7,300 this year, on top of the previous 10,000 per year in previous years.  And with more fundraising activities taking place, including several members of staff doing the Great North Run for Maggies North East, NRG staff are set to achieving another outstanding amount.
 
Joining the team on the first leg of their challenge up Ben Nevis was Lorna Moran, Chief Executive of NRG and Wayham Moran, the companys Finance Director and completing all three peaks was Therese Liddle, the companys Group Managing Director.
 
Lorna Moran says  It was great being involved with the challenge and giving the team some morale support to send them on their way. One peak in 24 hours is a challenge in itself, but three takes determination, drive, fantastic fitness levels and most of all a sense of adventure.  We are all incredibly proud of the team that took part.
 
Maggies North East is close to the heart of NRG.   Lorna Moran was honored to be invited to Chair the North East branch of Maggies in 2009 and over the last two years has helped Maggies get further towards its target of the 3M. The ground for the cancer caring centre will be broke this summer, and development should take twelve months to complete.
