Flying the flag for charity
We are delighted to be supporting Charles Griffin from TEC Group as he takes on his amazing ‘100 miles 10 mountains’ challenge.
With a real passion for the great outdoors and mountain climbing, he has decided to make a positive difference by setting himself this challenge. All the money raised is being donated to the Rainbow Trust, an inspirational charity who are committed to providing invaluable support for families who have a child with a life threatening or terminal illness.
The challenge is certainly no mean feat – during 2019 Charles will be pitting himself against the elements and climbing a whopping 10 of the British Isle’s highest mountain peaks. The chosen mountains include: Snowdon in Wales (1085m), Ben Nevis (1345m), Cairngorm (1245m) and Braeriach (1296m) in Scotland and Scarfell Pike (978m) – England’s Highest Peak.
And to top it all off, the brave soul started by walking 100 miles in 5 days along the West Highland Way!!!
Take a look at these pictures of him undertaking and completing his epic journey as part of his first challenge:
As he continues his ongoing journey he is working to his target of raising as much as possible for the Rainbow Trust’s fund that currently stands at £700,000.00 and is aiming to reach £1million this year.
Rainbow Trust’s Children’s Charity provides bespoke support for families who have a child with a serious illness, offering the whole family support regardless of diagnosis and are there for as long as a family has needs.
