Nutreco team completes National Three Peaks Challenge
A true demonstration of collaboration and caring
On Friday 11th July, a group of 16 employees from Trouw Nutrition GB and Skretting UK joined together, many having never met before, to tackle the National Three Peaks Challenge.
The aim of the challenge is to climb the three highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales, Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon, a total of 26 miles and 3407 metres within 24 hours (or as close as possible!).
With a mix of experience and fitness in the team, everyone supported each other through the highs and lows of spending 11 hours cramped in a minibus or car (very ably supported by our 3 volunteer drivers) with no sleep, to reach the summits of all 3 mountains.
It was a fantastic experience with many stories and laughs along the way and we’re already talking about what will be the challenge for 2015!
However, the most important outcome of the Challenge was to raise a fantastic £4,100 (to date) for our chosen charities – Cancer Research and Motor Neurone Disease Association.
