Trainee lawyers from Hammonds LLP in Birmingham are gearing up to take on the National Three-Peaks Challenge in aid of charity.
During the weekends of 13 June and 20 June, over 15 Hammonds trainees from the firm's UK offices in Birmingham, London, Leeds and Manchester will be climbing Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowden. Scaling the three peaks as part of the National Challenge involves a climb of over 3,400m in a single 24-hour period.
The team from Birmingham comprises Robert Farrer-Brown, who organised the firm's participation in the Challenge, Kate Leavesley and Emma Birch. The other teams are:
Leah Carson, Ryan Carver, Gavin Howarth, Sally Matthews and Natasha Whiddon are the team from Leeds.
Stephen Mooney, Tim Taylor, Geoff Shreeve, Emily Walling, James Buckley and Alex Szehidewicz.
Ben Williams, Michael Lockton and Daniel Berry.
Each of the firm's offices will be raising money for local charities, Macmillan Cancer support (Birmingham), the Hollybank Trust (Leeds), Dr Kershaw's Hospice (Manchester) and Street League and Orchid (London).
Robert Farrer-Brown said: "I have been keen to climb the Three Peaks for some time, and after discussing it with my fellow trainees, we felt ready for the challenge. It has certainly inspired some friendly rivalry and a boost to team spirit, and we are all hoping to raise as much money as we can for our office charities."
"We are in no doubt that the Challenge will be incredibly demanding and will require an immense level of commitment and dedication to complete. We have been in training for the past few months and have already climbed Snowden and Scafell Pike, although we tackled both mountains on separate days!"
