Three peaks team from VINCI Construction UK, in Watford, set to climb for children with diplegic cerebral palsy
5:10pm Tuesday 10th September 2013 in News
Five Watford-based construction industry workers are climbing mountains to fund treatment for three local children suffering from diplegic cerebral palsy (DCP).
The group from the Human Resources department of VINCI Construction UK in Imperial Way, Watford, aim to ascend the three tallest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales, all within 24 hours.
In total, 3,000 vertical metres and 480 miles will be travelled as they scale Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike, and Snowdon.
The group has already raised more than £5,000, including a £1,700 donation from recruitment company Linsco.
Colin Jellicoe, Human Resources Director at VINCI Construction UK and one of the hikers, said: "To climb three mountains in a day you need a huge motivating factor.
"For us, that motivation is the thought of helping three wonderful local children lead long, fulfilling lives and we can’t think of any reason better than that."
