Congratulations to the Meridian Business Support employees who embarked upon the 3 Peaks Challenge. The challenge involved the scaling of the three tallest mountains in Britain - Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon - all in just 24 hours! 

Each challenger raised money for a chosen charity and, with Meridian's support alone, over £300 was raised in addition to everyone's individual fund raising efforts. Charities supported included, Abbie's ArmyLeukaemia ResearchSt Oswald's HospiceTiny LivesSt Andrew Hospice and Heart UK

Andrew Pettingill, Managing Director - Office & Professional, Education, Industrial and On-Site, at Meridian Business Support was doing the 3 Peaks Challenge to raise money for Children With Cancer UK

"At the top of Ben Nevis, there was driving rain, it was cold and windy - I think my clothes are still wet from that mountain! It was definitely the toughest thing I've ever done and I won't be in a hurry to do anything like it again. It was as much a mental challenge as a physical one and, certainly for me, knowing the good we were doing made it feel really worthwhile and it got me through to the end. Personally I'm elated and proud of everyone's efforts." 

Andrew completed the challenge in 23 hours and 30 minutes, you can visit his Just Giving page, if you'd like to make a donation.
