An intrepid team of 13 will be tackling the Three Peaks Challenge on 2nd September, raising funds for Alzheimer Scotland.

The team, who all work at Wm Grants and Sons Distillers, will be attempting to conquer the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales in 24 hours.

The mountains; Snowdon, in Wales (1085m), Scafell Pike, in England (978m), Ben Nevis, in Scotland (1345m) aren’t a walk in the park on their own, but all three in 24 hours will be a test of their physical and mental stamina.

They will be transported between the peaks by their drivers who won’t be twiddling their thumbs while they wait for them.

They’ll be busy be offering Hendricks G&Ts to refresh weary climbers coming off the mountains in return for donations to their fund.

The challenge is supported by the Wm Grants and Sons Charitable Foundation who will match each climbers fundraising total up to £1000 and has provided the minibuses.

They are also being supported by Sodexo, their onsite catering company, who are keeping the team fed and watered.

Fundraising is vital for Alzheimer Scotland and helps us to be able to offer activities which help people to remain active in their communities.

The charity runs popular groups like music and football reminiscence; safe spaces where people can come together.
