Britannia Leatherbarrows take on the Three Peaks Challenge

Sep 06, 2015
A team from Bournemouth-based Britannia Leatherbarrows tackled the Three Peaks Challenge over the weekend of 4/5 July in aid of Action Medical Research.

Challenge over the weekend of 4/5 July in aid of Action Medical Research. The Challenge is to climb Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in England and Snowdon in Wales within a 24-hour time frame.

Leatherbarrows' team members Robert Dance, Richard Fisher, Lewis Mills, Paul Messer, Tom Collins and Andy Pittwood trained for many months to take on the challenge which involves climbing all three mountains, and driving between them, in under 24 hour.  Unfortunately they didn't quite break the very demanding limit having started at 4:00am and finishing at 5:00am the net day, however it's still a remarkable achievement that allowed the team to raise a whopping £2,372.40 for the charity.

Lewis Mills, Office & Commercial Removal Manager at Britannia Leatherbarrows said, "We're all in the office feeling sore, hungry and very tired, but definitely worth it now, even if we didn't think so halfway up Snowdon. A once in a lifetime experience ticked off the bucket list, but never to be repeated."

The research work Action Medical Research has performed over the years has affected almost everyone who lives in the UK.  It is through its research that medical successes such as the first polio and rubella vaccines were created for use in the UK; another important breakthrough was ultrasound for pregnancy.
