Staff from Wetherby Building Systems and their key suppliers will be taking on the Three Peaks Challenge 2012 this weekend, tackling the three highest mountain peaks in Scotland, England and Wales.
Covering themselves in Gortex (and whatever other waterproof fabric they can get hold of, by the looks of things), John, Paul, Anthony, Terry and Vicki will be attempting to conquer the summits of Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon (a total over 3400 meters) with a road trip of over 500 miles in between, in less than 24 hours from start to finish.
The team will be supported by Bob (the driver!) and Barrie (assistant driver) and they are aiming to now surpass their target fundraising figures.
Terry commented … “We are raising money for Action Medical Research, a fantastic, yet relatively unknown children’s charity, dedicated to improving the health of babies and children in the UK. For almost 60 years the charity has been behind numerous breakthroughs such as the UK polio vaccine, ultrasound scanning in pregnancy, and more recently the foetal heart rate monitor, a new state-of-the-art device that could help save thousands of at-risk babies.
Action Medical Research relies entirely on donations to fund a range of research projects that address serious childhood conditions and improve quality of life for children with disabilities.
People have already been so generous and really supportive, but there’s always room for that little bit more isn’t there, so if you haven’t already sponsored us, please dig deep to help this very worthwhile charity”.

We wish you all the very best of luck !
