BriggsAmasco Fearless Foursome to Take on The Mighty Multiplex Three Peaks Challenge

Four BriggsAmasco employees have signed up for a charity challenge that promises to be no walkover for the plucky participants.

Allan Doris (Glasgow Branch Manager), Lee Virgin (Operations Director London/South), Kenny Scott (Plant Fitter) and Shona MacMillan (Area Safety Advisor) will each be putting their best foot forward for the Multiplex Three Peaks Challenge. One of the UK’s most popular fundraising feats, the challenge involves climbing the three highest peaks of Scotland, England and Wales. Three of BriggsAmasco’s intrepid quartet have set themselves a 24-hour target to complete the potentially gruelling trek.

Allan, Lee, Shona and Kenny embark on their Multiplex Three Peaks Challenge on Friday, April 26th. BriggsAmasco is sponsoring the group to the tune of £4,000, with each of the four employees contributing to the total with their own donations. Monies raised will be donated to two small, but very deserving charities (The Royal British Legion and Project Recce) for service veterans.

Tony Lawther, Managing Director said: “The Three Peaks Challenge is a renowned test of mental and physical stamina. We salute Allan, Lee, Shona and Kenny for putting themselves forward for the event. They shall be raising money for an extremely worthy cause whilst completing a journey that they will forever look back on with great pride. We wish them all the very best of luck in their exceptional endeavour.”

The Three Peaks Challenge is not for the faint-hearted. The three mountains are Snowdon, in Wales (1,085m); Scafell Pike, in England (978m), and Ben Nevis, in Scotland (1,345m). The triumvirate of peaks incurs a walking distance of 23 miles (37km) and an accumulative climb of 10,052ft (3,064 metres). It equates to double the ascent of the Yorkshire Three Peaks over a similar total walking distance. The Three Peaks total driving distance is 462 miles.

Allan Doris, Glasgow Branch Manager said: “I think we’re all a little daunted by the prospect of taking on the Three Peaks, but we’re excited at the same time. I envisage a real team effort will be essential to us conquering all three peaks. Initiatives such as this are a brilliant way to raise much-needed cash for some great charities. They are also a good excuse to get fit. I’d like to thank everyone for their sponsorship so far. Your support will be our incentive throughout our incredible journey.”
