Dauntless Scots complete Three Peaks Challenge

Published:  09 August, 2018

A Scottish team has raised thousands for charity after climbing the three highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales in one day.

The 12 employees from Keyline raised £8,307 for Prostate Cancer UK, which is more than double their original target.

The gruelling Three Peaks Challenge involves 23 miles of walking, a 10,052-foot ascent and 462 miles of driving, all in under 24 hours.

It starts at the foot of Mount Snowdon in Wales, continues to Scafell Pike in England, and finishes at Ben Nevis in Scotland.

David Grandison, Regional Sales Director of Keyline Scotland and one of the team members, said: “Having never taken on a challenge like this before, it’s easy to say this is one of the hardest things I have ever done.

“Tackling Scafell Pike in the dark with only head torches for guidance was definitely the most challenging part of those 24 hours, but I am so proud of all the team who undertook the Three Peaks Challenge to raise money for such an amazing cause.”
