Considered one of Britain’s toughest outdoor challenges, the National 3 Peaks Challenge takes in the dizzy heights of Ben Nevis (1,344m), Scafell Pike (978m) and Snowdon (1,085m). The group climbed the highest mountains in the UK – Ben Nevis (Scotland), Scafell Pike (England) and finished at Snowdon (Wales).

Raising well over £2,000 for the children’s hospice that provides homes and clinical support for young children with life threatening conditions, the team from DCS are exceptionally proud of their efforts.

DCS Managing Director Dominic Ball said: “It was a fantastic, tough but very worthwhile challenge. The group did really well in encouraging each other as it got tough and fortunately we all managed to complete all three peaks. It’s an incredible experience and a feeling I won’t forget in a long time. As a local growing company we are all really committed to supporting local charities. We’ve seen the positive work volunteers at Francis House do for young children and their families who are suffering and we really wanted to do something to help support this.”

Emma Rapley, fundraising officer at Francis House said: “We would like to say a huge thank you to the team from DCS Solutions following the National 3 Peaks Challenge. Climbing Ben Nevis, Snowdon and Scafell Pike within this time frame is an incredible achievement, and we hope the team are all very proud. Thanks also to their support crew, and the friends, family and clients who have helped to raise over £2,000.
