3 Jackson Boyd employees, 3 Peaks and 3 countries
Why would they give up their weekend to do this; was it the promise of an afternoon (and hopefully a morning) off work? We’re not saying this wasn’t an incentive but no (we hope!); instead, the Peaky Boyders are raising money for Cystic Fibrosis Trust, one of Jackson Boyd’s chosen charities for 2018.
The 3-Peak challenge involves climbing the highest peaks in Scotland (Ben Nevis), England (Scafell Pike) and Wales (Snowdon) in 24 hours. In other words, an easy stroll of 23 miles with a total ascent of 3,064 metres.
All funds raised will be going to the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, who dedicate themselves to promoting excellence in research and clinical care, as well as providing practical support and advice to people with Cystic Fibrosis and their families.
