Staples Take On The Three Peaks

A team of 16 members of staff from stationary giants, Staples, have decided to embark on a charity adventure this summer. The team consists of Claire Skinner, Oliver Storr, Richard Shannon, Jennie Williams, Andy Boulcott, Andy Le Butt, Deborah Weiss, Ade Karim and Louise Overton plus a few of Staples’ partners.

The Three Peaks Challenge is a tough endurance challenge that involves climbing three mountains in 24 hours: Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon, the tallest in Scotland, England and Wales respectively. Put simply, it’s over a third of the height of Everest in 24 hours.

The team will start at 5pm Saturday 15th June climbing Ben Nevis before nightfall, travel overnight to the Lake District and climb Scafell Pike as the sun rises, then travel to Snowdonia in North Wales and climb Snowdon, to be back down to the minibus before 5pm on Sunday 16th June.

They hope that by committing to such a difficult challenge they can raise a fantastic amount of money for both the Midland Air Ambulance Charity and the Encephalitis Society. Please join us in supporting these great causes.
