Members of staff from across the company’s three offices in Milton Keynes, Dublin and Romania climbed three of the highest peaks in England, Wales and Scotland. The Three Peaks Challenge is completed in 24-hours and involves climbing over 3000 metres.
The brave volunteers took on the challenge in aid of raising funds for the IMS Foundation, which was set up by IMS MAXIMS for employees to raise money for good causes. In this instance, the team of six raised over £1500 for three charities;
- The Children Establishment Radauti, an initiative that helps and supports children in Romania without families. The charity currently provides accommodation and care for over 122 children between the ages three and eighteen.
- Focus Ireland, which provides advice, information assistance, supported housing, education and training for those that are homeless or facing the risk of losing their homes across Ireland.
- Macmillan Cancer Support, which provides help and assistance to millions of people across the UK affected by cancer through offering advice, training, and research, to better understand and prevent a disease that changes the lives of over 2.5 million a year.
The fundraising page will remain open until 1st June. Following which the money will be divided evenly across the three charities.
