Happy Honda staff triumph completing Three Peaks for charity!
20 employees from the Honda network pulled on their walking boots and took on a Three Peaks Challenge, raising over £7,000 for Wooden Spoon.
After 16 weeks of training the team took on the 24-hour gruelling challenge, which involved ascending and descending the three largest mountains in England (Scafell Pike), Scotland (Ben Nevis) and Wales (Snowdon). The team managed to complete the challenge in an amazing time of just 21 hours and 29 minutes – with the challenge organisers commenting that for two of the mountains the team were the quickest they have had all year!
The money they raised will go towards local projects that we support across the UK and Ireland, for example in Berkshire where the global motor specialists’ UK head office is based. Wooden Spoon’s Chilterns region recently granted £7,674 towards a sensory room at the Dingley Family and Specialist Early Years Centres (DFSEY) which provided a special place for children with additional needs and disabilities to visit and enjoy, whilst developing their skills through play.
David Gostling from Honda UK told Wooden Spoon why they chose to fundraise for the children’s charity of rugby; “We chose Wooden Spoon as it is a charity close to our heart as a team. We have strong links with the core values of the charity, and having been involved in Rugby since I was 6 years old, genuinely the charity was an automatic choice.”
A big thank you to all the staff who took part to everyone who sponsored the intrepid team!
