Travis Perkins Managed Services takes on the Three Peaks Challenge

Published:  30 June, 2016

A team of nine colleagues from Travis Perkins Managed Services, which provides maintenance materials for public sector organisations, will be taking on the Three Peaks Challenge this July - aiming to raise £10,000 for cancer support charity Macmillan.

The team includes Stuart Hough, managing director; James Clack, sales and marketing director; Adam Kent, business development manager; Andrew Craig; account manager; Gemma McRae, bid manager; Martin Thomas, project manager; Phil Jones, business development executive; Paul Lonsdale, regional sales manager; and James Meehan, data analyst. They will be tackling the three highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales – Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowden – in just 24 hours. The challenge involves walking 27 miles and climbing 9,800 ft.

The adventurous team is aiming to raise £10,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support to fund the charity’s vital practical, medical, emotional and financial support services that help ensure no one has to face cancer alone.

Adam Kent, business development manager at Travis Perkins Managed Services, said: “I’m really looking forward to taking on the challenge, but it’s definitely going to be a tough 24 hours with a lot of walking! Macmillan Cancer Support does brilliant work and we’re hoping to do our bit and raise a significant amount of money to help the charity. Our target is £10,000 and we will be very grateful for any donations at all.”
