Team Tiger successfully completed the Three Peaks Challenge

  • Posted on: 10 July 2019

 

It’s with great pleasure to confirm Team Tiger successfully completed the National Three Peaks challenge in a time of 23.5 hours! What an amazing achievement!
 

A huge thank you to all the walkers, Tiger staff, families, weekend support crew (Martyn, Alan, Jo and Rich) and especially to those that have donated, there is still time and the total is currently in excess of £6,300 plus gift aid to be added on!! The team had its challenges but they were overcome with grit and determination.

A special mention to our colleague Rob Ansell who walked up Snowdon on Saturday evening to store Eight bottles of cold “Double Dragon” as the cafe would be closed when we were due to summit!! That’s true team spirit!

Everybody involved, you know who you are, you are all a credit to our business and Brian and Amanda would be so proud, along with all those this incredible effort will support in the future. What’s the next challenge?

 

 

 

Special thanks to Martyn Paul from Advocate events and his great team of guides.
