The team is aiming to raise a total of £3,000 for the Spring Centre, Omega’s 2015 charity of the year. Founded in 1985, the Spring Centre is based in Quedgeley and provides care and support to children and young people with disabilities and their families, with the aim of improving and enriching their quality of life.
Leading the team was group director, James Strickland. Before the challenge commenced he commented, “Although we’re no strangers to charity challenges like this, the Three Peak challenge in June is going to be particularly difficult as we will be covering effectively 26 miles by foot. I’m delighted that so many members of staff put their names forward for this task and I look forward to working together to complete climbing Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon.
“The money we raise will be going to a great cause and will really make a difference in the lives of young people with disabilities and their families across Gloucestershire.”
During the event the twelve walkers were supported by Rachel Harber, Nigel Owen, Del Williams and Emma Getvoldsen, helping with food, transport and moral support.
This latest feat follows close on the heels of the company’s first challenge of the year, the completion of the London Marathon 2015 which helped raise over £11,000.
