Employees from the Pickstock Group of companies are to complete the Three Peak Challenge in June 2013, as a charity fundraising event for Shropshire and North Wales Marie Curie Cancer.
Twenty two employees from Elements Europe (UK Pod Manufacturers), JRoss Developments Ltd and JR Pickstock Ltd have volunteered to walk the three peaks, which has been named “Martin’s Mountains.” The challenge is in memory of Martin Thorpe, both a friend and colleague, who sadly passed away last year after battling with cancer.
The walk will involve three mountains in three countries. Beginning at Ben Nevis, Scotland (1344m), to Scafell Pike, England (978m) and finishing the challenge with Snowdon, Wales (1085m).
Marie Curie Cancer Care, Shropshire and North Wales, provide high quality care and support for those at the end of their life. Approximately 50 percent of the cost of nursing care and hospices is received from the NHS – the rest comes through fundraising events.
Patients with terminal conditions are cared for at their own home, close to their family and friends, Marie Curie makes this possible for thousands of patients and carers every year.
