A team of seventeen Nigel Wright staff successfully completed the Three Peaks Challenge this weekend and raised an outstanding £12,500 for Cancer Research UK.
Sixteen members of staff from the Newcastle office and one colleague from Norway set off from the North East on Friday 11th July, and climbed the highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales in under 24 hours between Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th July.
Following a number of demanding training sessions earlier this year, the group proved that motivation and a great team spirit can conquer even the toughest weather conditions.
CEO Paul Wilson, who also took part in the challenge, said:
“We are delighted to have completed this extremely challenging event in support of such a worthy cause. We all know someone who has been affected by cancer in one way or another, so it is so important to keep supporting the life-saving research that Cancer Research UK are doing.“
“We are extremely proud to have raised this exceptional amount of money for Cancer Research, which marks the beginning of a great collaboration with the charity. We are extremely grateful and would like to thank everyone who donated and supported us throughout the event.”
