A combined team from Simple Landlords Insurance and Direct Group took on the National Three Peaks challenge, raising £10,625 for Macmillan Cancer support.
The team began the 4,409 ft ascent up Scotland's Ben Nevis and the highest of their three peaks to scale early on 28 June, before driving 6 hours south to Yorkshire's Lake District National Park and their second peak.
The team managed to complete Scafell Pike's 3,209 ft ascent in just 3 hours and 50 minutes, before heading to their final challenge at Wales' Snowdonia National Park.
Snowdon's 3,472ft peak was a daunting sight, but the team dug deep to reach the summit and scale England, Scotland and Wales three highest peaks in under 27 hours.
The team's monumental effort was supported by friends, family, clients, colleagues as well as Direct Group themselves, who matched all funds raised to push the final donation to £10,625.
More fundraising events will continue throughout the year in aid of Macmillan, as the company try and reach their incredible target of raising £100,000 for Macmillan.
