Sticking Together For Three Peaks Challenge

A team from ARDEX UK and Building Adhesives Limited completed the National Three Peaks Challenge this summer in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital raising £10,000 in sponsorship. The money will be specifically ued on the ward that continues to care for Olivia, the 15-month-old daughter of Mark Dove, area sales manager East Anglia and his wife Charlotte. A hardy bunch of eight participants, along with a fantastically supportive back up team, took part in the challenge that involves climbing Britain’s three highest peaks, Ben Nevis in Western Scotland (4,409 ft), Scafell Pike in the Lake District (3,209 ft) and Snowdon in North Wales (3,560 ft), all within 24 hours; a total hike of 11,178 ft, driving 415 miles between the mountains. “I have to say, the effort and camaraderie of everyone in our team was immense,” said Peter Bell, managing director of ARDEX and Building Adhesives Limited. “This challenge provided us with not only a physical challenge, but one where we had to overcome mental fatigue as well. “I would like to thank and praise my colleagues, who were inspirational and showed what can be achieved through teamwork and endeavour.”
