Sodexo staff at their peak
A TEAM of walkers took on the Three Peaks Challenge to raise money for three charities.
The staff at facilities firm Sodexo based at AstraZeneca in Hurdsfield, scaled the three largest mountains in the UK within 24 hours.
After ascending a total of 3,407 metres and travelling 462 miles, the eight members of staff completed the challenge in 23 hours 45 minutes.
The feat raised over £3,000 which will be split between Seashell Trust, the East Cheshire Hospice, StopHunger and Ambitious About Autism.
John Moores, from Sodexo, said: “What an amazing 24 hours. I’m really proud of what we achieved as a team.”
Seashell Trust is a charity which cares for and educates some of the most profoundly disabled children and young people in the country.
Sodexo has long been a supporter of the charity, raising much-needed funds, volunteering, and offering work placements for Seashell Trust students.
Wendy Bray, from the Seashell Trust, said: “We are in awe of the team for their achievement, not only in completing the challenge but also the amount they managed to raise.
“The children and young people here will benefit enormously from their efforts. We feel very lucky to have this special partnership with Sodexo and AstraZeneca, who continue to do so much for us.”
