On Saturday 11th June, Nigel Wright will once again be taking up the challenge of collectively raising over £10,000 in support of our charity partner, Cancer Research UK, by completing The Yorkshire Three Peaks.
Nigel Wright competed in the same challenge last year and also took part in the National Three Peaks Challenge in 2014, raising over £23,000 across the two occasions. Nigel Wright aims to surpass its previous fundraising efforts and CEO Paul Wilson has also set a target for everyone to complete the course within 12 hours.
Over 30 employees from across seven international offices will be taking part in the walk this year. One of the biggest contingents travelling to the UK is Nigel Wright’s Swedish team, from offices in Stockholm, Malmö and Gothenburg. Nigel Wright client, Swedish confectionary brand Cloetta, has very kindly agreed to supports its countrymens’ efforts by supplying walkers with some of their delicious chocolate.
Other employees are also looking to up the stakes this year by attempting to run instead of walking the 37.5 km. CEO Paul Wilson, commented:
“We are delighted to have Cancer Research UK as our designated company charity and to continue our support for this wholly worthwhile cause. Additionally, we are extremely proud of our teams for taking part in the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge and indeed many of the other events that we organise. So far, a fantastic sum of money has been raised and our gratitude extends to the friends and families of our employees who take the time to donate and spread the word of our efforts.”
The Nigel Wright team will set off on 10th June from the Newcastle office and travel to the Yorkshire Dales National Park where they will begin the challenge of climbing the peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough in under 12 hours.
