At 7am on Saturday 23rd August 2014, the Trek for Thomas team; Pete Craske, Phil Craske, Tom Morris, Stu Whiting and Simon Bodman set off to climb Ben Nevis. Over the next few days they continued onto Scafell Pike and then Snowdon. To make the challenge even more impressive, the 5 climbers added a twist to the ‘3 peaks’ challenge by cycling between each one… and then back to Bristol just for good measure!
They were supported on their journey by the Triangle Telecom Ranger (normally found carrying a Satellite dish), on this occasion it offered a secure place for tools and a comfortable spot for resting. No rest for this team of friends though, as they hurtled from peak to peak, and back in just a few days.
The team arrived back at the Bristol Children’s Hospital after 7 gruelling days on Friday 29th August having climbed around 3,400 metres and cycled over 600 miles.
Not only have they achieved a staggering feat, but they have raised £21,654 for the Wallace and Gromit Appeal.
We are proud to have been able to help the team, and are looking forward to celebrating the completion of their challenge at the Grand Party on Saturday 4th October 2014.
