The Windows Solutions team at REHAU raised over £7,500 for Scope, the company’s chosen charity of the year, by conquering the famous Three Peaks Challenge.
The challenge, which brought together 27 people from different departments and locations across the UK, Ireland and Italy, involves climbing Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon, a walk of more than 26 miles and a total climb of over 10,000 feet as well as more than 450 miles driven between the peaks.
Of those that took part in the challenge, Arthur Dylan Roberts, Kevin O’Neill, Sam Tynan, Richard Hardstaff, Andy Pinnock and Faye Tompkins represented the Windows Solutions team.
Sam Tynan, Junior Sales Manager, said: “Reaching the summit of Ben Nevis and punching through the cloud layer to a stunning view was a truly fantastic experience. The challenge was also a great opportunity to meet new people in different sectors of the business. Despite the difficulties of waking up at the crack of dawn and encountering the welsh drizzle, I’d certainly have another go at it and possibly try and get them bagged in under 24 hours!”
“The Three Peaks sparked some new friendships and the morale of all the participants were high all through the challenge,” Said Faye “We’re on the lookout for our next big test and are currently batting ideas around. It’s definitely the start of something quite special for us and it was all the more rewarding doing it with such a motivated group of people. It was one of the best things I’ve ever done!”
Kevin O’Neill, commercial manager added: “It was a very well organised event and I applaud the efforts of the organising teams and all who participated to help raise money for a well deserving charity. The positive team spirit and overwhelming support from everyone pushed me to do my very best and we definitely made some wonderful memories.”
