In the past fortnight the Salford-based technical recruiter and engineering project management company, Morson Group, has embarked on two high-octane endurance events to raise thousands of pounds for its 2013 charities, The David Lewis Centre and The Factory Youth Zone.
Employees across Morson Group’s UK offices took part in the infamous Three Peaks Challenge – scaling the three highest peaks across Scotland, England and Wales within 24 hours, including travel time. Over 28 miles were trekked on foot in that time, and over 900 miles were clocked up on the transport vehicles. The teams successfully completed the task despite extreme weather conditions, reaching the foot of Mount Snowdon with time to spare on the 24 hour clock.
The following week, 18 keen cyclists took to the hills of Wales, riding from Machynlleth on the Southern borders of Snowdonia, through the Welsh mountains to Caernarfon before heading eastwards back to the company’s head office in Eccles, Salford. Over three days the cyclists hit a total mileage of 190 miles as they worked their way across the Welsh terrain.
Morson Group is raising money throughout 2013 for The David Lewis Centre and The Factory Youth Zone, two North West charities with a focus on generating support and facilities for young people, and individuals with complex learning disabilities.
