Hoping for Peak performance

Three Peaks Challenge

We’re always up for a challenge at Evosite and equally keen to support our partners. That’s why a dozen of us will be tackling the three highest peaks in England, Scotland and Wales, back-to-back in 48 hours for a fantastic cause.

We’re aiming to raise £3,000 - £1,000 per peak - for our partner charity Stand Against Violence (SAV).

The charity works to prevent violence, its long-term consequences and the grief of losing loved ones by delivering violence prevention workshops and talks with young people.

It was set up in 2005 in response to the murder of 17-year-old Lloyd Fouracre, who was beaten to death by a group of drunken youths in Taunton. The charity is led by his brother Adam.

Here at Evosite, we’re proud to support SAV and that’s why we’re pulling on our walking boots and (hopefully) slapping on the suncream to raise money for this amazing charity.

On 9th September 2018 we’ll be setting off to climb:

  • Ben Nevis in Scotland (1,345 m)
  • Snowdon in Wales (1,085 m)
  • Scafell Pike in England (978 m)

We’re already spending our spare time tackling inclines across the region including the hills of Exmoor, the Quantocks and the challenges of Cheddar Gorge. We even crossed the border into Wales to successfully take on Pen y Fan.

It’s going to be tough but we’re hoping our friends and business colleagues will get behind us and donate to this fantastic cause.

We want to raise as much money as possible for SAV - just £3 helps the charity to train and prepare one young person and keep them safe from the consequences of violence.

Imagine what they could do with £3,000. How many young people they could reach. How many families they could prevent going through the heartache suffered by Lloyd’s friends and family.
