NISSAN dealership staff have raised more than £3,200 for the British Paralympic Association after climbing three mountains in less than 24 hours.
Seven colleagues from Ancaster Nissan’s showrooms in Bromley, Eltham, Croydon, Shepperton, Slough and Penge took on the Welsh Three Peaks Challenge on Saturday to support the charity ahead of the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games.
Led by Managing Director Stephen Wood, the group climbed Snowdon in the North, Cadair Idris in mid-Wales and Pen y Fan in the south – a total of 26 miles and more than 9,000ft.
Carly Keeler, Marketing Manager at Ancaster Nissan in Penge, was part of the group taking on the challenge.
She said: “It was really good but really hard work. We saw the sun set as we climbed Cadair Idris which was amazing and came down in the dark wearing head torches which was a completely new challenge.
“But we are so proud of ourselves and feel this is a massive achievement. We’ve raised £3,200 at the moment and text donations won’t be added to the amount until June so we hope to reach our target of raising more than £5,000.”
