Ain’t no mountain high enough for ISG’s North West team
In less than 24 hours, six intrepid charity walkers from the North West of England scaled the highest mountains in Wales to raise almost £10,000 for Mental Health UK.
Peter Gleave and James Webster who are currently working on NWCH procured project Urmston Leisure Centre, were amongst others who covered 36 miles and ascended 14,880 feet, battling heavy rain and hail, to raise the funds for the Framework Partner’s new charity partner, Mental Health UK.
Peter led the ISG team. he said: “The Welsh 3000s challenge is supposed to be completed in under 24 hours. We set off at 5:30 am on the Thursday morning in heavy rain and hail and completed an extended route back to our accommodation by 4:30am the next morning. We scaled the last of the 15 summits at 2am, navigating through the hours of darkness using head torches as we traversed the final ridges and summits.”
The team has raised £9,898.75 thanks to supply chain partners, friends, family and colleagues, but they need a final push to reach the grand total of £10,000.
