Three peaks challenge update

3peaksThis year we’re raising funds for our corporate charity, MND (Motor Neurone Disease) Association, whose vision is a world free from MND.

While not quite the ice bucket challenge seen in the news this week, in one week’s time some of our team at LGC will be completing their own fundraising event. Fourteen of LGC’S Forensics & Security team are taking part in a Three Peaks Challenge, in which they will be visiting Ben Nevis (Scotland), Scafell Peak (England) and Snowdon (Wales) in 24 hours!

Jon Yeung, MD of LGC Forensics & Security shares the team’s update on their training and preparation for the upcoming challenge.

“There’s just over a week to go until the Forensics & Security Leadership Team embark on their Three Peaks Challenge!

Training (for some) is in full flow with one of the team scaling all three peaks in the lead up to the main event…a pretty impressive way to break in those new walking boots!

The logistics team have completed their preparations with vehicles hired and provisions to support a dozen hungry walkers procured. There are a lot of high energy snacks (Informed-Sport accredited, of course!) to help with refuelling and pot noodles seem to have made their way into the shopping basket for some reason too…

Mike Webster, HR Leader for Forensics & Security is leading the playlist development for the long road trips between mountains so it promises to be a weekend of New Romantics and 70s Rock – synths and seven minute guitar solos at the ready!

Thanks to everyone who has sponsored us so far – your generosity has been amazing and will help keep us going on the long climbs to come.”
