Three teams entered, one from each of their group of companies – UHY, Provisio Limited and Virtual Business Source. At the end of the fundraising period we are so proud to say that together the teams raised £11,695.45 (including gift aid).
Set in the stunning Scottish Highlands, The Ben Nevis Charity Challenge was a greater undertaking than any of them were expecting. The three teams of four were in the company of 45 other teams who faced climbing to the summit of Ben Nevis – the tallest peak in the British Isles, cycling 25 miles (on road) and canoeing a 3km course on Loch Lochy.
Despite severe weather conditions with 80mph gusts of wind and thick hill fog, along with some crippling injuries, all three teams conquered Ben Nevis. The majority then went on to complete the full challenge which included cycling 25 miles over the hilly Scottish landscape and canoeing across Loch Lochy with fewer team members than expected.
