On Friday 24th October 2014 these two Limegreen hillbillies – Alex ‘Crocodile Dundee’ Down and Andy ‘Ray Mears’ Rees, will accompany six financial advisors from Bartholomew Hawkins in an attempt to conquer the National Three Peaks Challenge – 3 mountains in 3 countries in under 24 hours. All to raise money for Velindre Cancer Centre.
This is hardly Richard Parks' 737 Challenge and it probably wouldn't impress Prince Harry and his military chums but these 8 white collar workers are neither athletes nor experienced mountaineers. In truth, some of these chumps have never seen a mountain or owned a pair of walking boots until recently.
This team of hardcore office types are prepared to chance blisters, physical exhaustion and sleep deprivation to triumphantly complete this gruelling feat. Add to this the horrendous weather conditions courtesy of Hurricane Gonzalo and the mountain of emails they will face after losing two days out of the office and you may appreciate the true enormity of the task facing this rabble of unlikely adventurers.
So what can you do to help? It's really easy… As the rain lashes down outside and the wind whistles at your window, go make yourself a nice warm cuppa, then sit back in your comfy office chair and click the link below. Please, donate as much as you can to help us raise as much money as possible for the wonderful people at Velindre Cancer Centre.
