Bernhard Company team set to beat the Three Peaks

Posted on April 17, 2018 at 2:30 PM

A team of Bernhard Company are taking on the 24-hour National Three Peaks Challenge this June in aid of Mind UK.

Fourteen members of the internationally renowned company will be taking on Snowdon in Wales, Scafell, in England and Ben Nevis in Scotland in a challenge that begins at 2pm on Friday 8th June 2018.

To successfully complete the challenge, the team has set out a plan to reach each of the summits and come back down again before 7pm on Saturday 9th June. Setting off from their Factory in Haverhill, they will spend 12 hours travelling 1,258 miles across the three countries. This will leave them 4,5 hours to climb Snowdon (7 miles long, with an ascent of 723m), 5 hours to climb Scafell (6 miles long with an ascent of 989m) and 6 hours to finish the 10.5 miles with the highest ascent of 1352m of Ben Nevis.

The team is aiming to raise £2,000 before they set off to the trek. All funds raised will go towards supporting the work Mind, the mental health charity which provides advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. They campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding. 

Simon Hale, Operations Manager for Bernhard Company, organizing and taking part in the event said: “We wanted to support Mind UK for the great work they do across the United Kingdom to help people with mental health issues. It is a cause that is close to our employees’ hearts and we are very proud to be helping the great work they are doing”
