CarShop employees traded car sales for cramp-ons when they raised over £8,600 by completing the Three Peaks Challenge.
A six-strong team from the Northampton-based used car supermarket operator covered almost 1,000 miles and climbed over 3,000 meters to reach the three highest points in Great Britain as part of its commitment to raising £100,000 for Global’s Make Some Noise charity.
The team summited Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in England’s Lake District and Snowdon in Wales’ Snowdonia National Park.
The trek marked the end of a six-month-long training and fundraising period, during which the team managed to raise £8,626.
The event was organised through a partner of Global’s Make Some Noise - Charity Challenge; a company specialising in delivering incredible adventures to raise money for the charity.
Emma Bradley, Director of Global Goodness’ director, Emma Bradley, said: “We’re really proud of our partnership with CarShop and it certainly reached new heights this weekend.
"We’re very grateful to all those involved in the challenge, who really pushed themselves to the limit for Global’s Make Some Noise.
“The money raised will support families living with illness, disability or lack of opportunity.”
CarShop’s chief executive, Jonathan Dunkley, said: “I’m immensely proud of my team and their incredible efforts to overcome this epic challenge, as it was by no means an easy thing to do.
“Over the past few months the team has championed the cause throughout the business and gained a lot of support from their colleagues.
"It really was a ‘job well done’, and the fact that nearly nine thousand pounds was raised, well that speaks for itself.
“At CarShop we’re extremely proud of what we’ve achieved-to-date in support of Global’s Make Some Noise, and are fully-committed to the ongoing success of the CarShop Cares programme.
“Working with Global, we’ve been fortunate enough to really get involved with the local charities they support; many of whom have been into our stores to share their stories with our teams.
“It’s for this very reason that all colleagues throughout the business understand how they can help impact the lives of children locally, and really do get behind any initiatives to fundraise.
"We’ve got loads more planned throughout the rest of the year, and will be working extremely closely with the team at Global to ensure we fulfil our commitment.”
