Local media, marketing and technology company raises £3,200 for local disability charity

A team of staff from local media, marketing and technology company scaled the UK’s three peaks in a bid to raise money for its regional charity partner, Gympanzees.

The event, which took place on Saturday 10 June, saw the team climb the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales within just 24 hours to support the fantastic efforts of the charity which is designed to provide young people and children with disabilities to access fun and fitness.

The adventurous group took on the formidable Three Peaks challenge specifically to support the Gympanzees ‘Project Home’ appeal. Introduced earlier this year, this initiative was created to help raise funds to develop a permanent centre so 66,000 young people and children can receive regular exercise and sensory integration opportunities.
