HWB duo part of four-man team raising money for British Heart Foundation
2:30pm Wednesday 4th September 2013 in News
Two team members from a Hampshire accountancy practice scaled new heights when they took on the taxing Three Peaks Challenge.
Business advisors Matt Jeram and Gary Brown were part of a four-man team which took on the task of climbing the UK’s highest peaks – Ben Nevis, Snowdon and Scafell Pike.
The pair were joined by Matt’s friend John Pache and cousin Andy Kneller for the expedition, which took place as the UK sweltered in soaring temperatures.
Injuries meant that despite a valiant effort, Gary and Andy were unable to complete the challenge.
But Matt and John managed to battle through. They began scaling the final peak, Snowdon, at 3.45am and finished at around 8.30am. That brought their total time for the Three Peaks to an impressive 24 and a half hours.
Matt said: “The going was pretty tough due to the heat. Who’d have thought that in the Scottish Highlands!
“Although we were half an hour slower than we would have liked, we had no complaints due to the high temperatures.”
The team raised over £300 for the British Heart Foundation. HWB, based at Chandler’s Ford is one of the largest independent accountancy practices in Hampshire.
