Three Peaks Charity Challenge
Bunzl Healthcare senior management team, supported by Sarah Jenkins and Chris Dunning from BSN medical, successfully conquered the three peaks challenge, raising money for the Alzheimer’s Society.
The three peaks, Scafell Pike, Helvellyn, and Skiddaw in the Lake District, challenged their physical fitness and endurance levels, hindered by poor weather conditions. Fog and pouring rain resulted in muddy boots and trousers but not dampened spirits.
Over £2,000 has been raised to support The Alzheimer’s Society, helping to fund research and care in the UK. Chris Dunning, Commercial Business Development Manager for BSN medical said “It was a gruelling challenge but we all worked together to reach the peak. Supporting Bunzl on this charity challenge, made an enjoyable and rewarding day”.
