08-May-2018: Bourne take on 3 Peaks Challenge

On 8th June, eight Bourne employees (Nikki Barlow, Aaron Staples, Maria Hardy, Jon Piggott, Chris Moore, David Lindsay, Beth Romans and Ben Laybourne) will be taking on the three highest peaks in England, Scotland and Wales to raise money for the Dorset Cancer Care Foundation.

Considered one of Britain’s toughest outdoor challenges, the 3 Peaks Challenge takes in the dizzy heights of Ben Nevis (1,344m), Scafell Pike (978m) and Snowdon (1,085m).

With the help of two designated drivers (Craig Galway and Nick Hayes), the team will first need to travel 566 miles from the Bourne HQ in Poole to Fort William where the challenge will begin. Then over the course of 24 hours, they will trek 26 miles and ascend to a total height of almost 3,000m.

This is a serious and tough challenge which requires a good level of fitness, as well as plenty of grit and determination. We would like to wish the team the best of luck and hope the weather holds out for this incredible challenge!
