Scaling the heights, 11 lawyers from Harrison Clark Rickerbys took on the Three Peaks challenge at the weekend, and raised nearly £8,000 which will go to Three Counties charities.
The team, who set out last Friday night to drive up to Scotland to tackle Ben Nevis first, then moved on to Scafell Pike and Snowden – two managed to scale all three peaks in 24 hours, and the others finished within 28 hours, but all raised far more than their original targets.
Charlotte Thornton-Smith, head of the firm’s Worcester office, who led the team, said: “Our legs are still sore, but we did it! What a great weekend, despite challenging weather – there was such teamwork, determination and good spirits. Final donations are still coming in but we raised a fantastic amount, which is the most important aspect of the challenge.”
The money raised will be distributed in grants by the firm’s charitable Foundation, which has given more than £200,000 to charities around the firm’s offices since it began in 2007.
