Team from HURST scale the Three Peaks for charity


Group raise thousands of pounds for MedEquip4Kids



Team from HURST scale the Three Peaks for charity

A 14-strong team from accounting and business advisory firm HURST conquered the highest peaks in England, Scotland and Wales in under 24 hours for charity.

The group’s efforts raised £3,340 for MedEquip4Kids, the firm’s charity of the year for 2018.

MedEquip4Kids raises money to provide paediatric medical equipment and facilities for hospitals and community health teams that are not funded by the NHS.

The HURST team, including members of the corporate finance, business services, finance and marketing departments, scaled Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon within 24 hours to complete the Three Peaks Challenge.

The fastest finishers were corporate finance team members Ben Bradley and Sinead O’Grady and finance assistant Chris Kinsey, who clocked 22hrs 50mins.

Marketing executive Lucy McCormick, who was among the climbers, said: “It was a gruelling challenge with a number of those taking part left nursing blisters, knee and foot injuries, but the support we received and the money we raised made it all really worthwhile.

“We’re so pleased to be supporting MedEquip4Kids, which gives so much to our communities and provides essential medical equipment for babies and children.”

So far this year, HURST has also staged a ‘Dress up as a kid’ day for staff and an office Bake Off competition.

Future planned events include the firm’s annual corporate football tournament and a fundraising challenge in which teams of HURST staff will organise activities to raise as much money as possible in a single day.

The joyous HURST team is pictured at the summit of Ben Nevis.
