Chartered surveyors provide ‘vantastic’ Three Peaks Challenge support for Tenovus cancer charity

South Wales chartered Surveyors Hutchings & Thomas helped a charity fund raising Three Peaks challenge run more smoothly by arranging transport for a group of entrants.

A team from Marshalls and Tenovus, took part in the Tenovus event to scale the three tallest peaks in the UK, Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon all in 24 hours.

A key to success in the gruelling challenge is having a reliable and comfortable vehicle to transport the competitors to and between the mountains in Scotland, England and Wales.

Haydn Thomas, of Hutchings & Thomas, Newport, said: “We have been working closely with Tenovus for the past 17 years managing their retail portfolio of some 72 properties located across England and Wales. Tenovus is also our nominated charity.

“When the team were looking for a vehicle to help their team take part in the Three Peaks event we were happy to approach our clients, Cwmbran Van Hire, of Springvale Business Park, to see if they could provide us with one of their minibuses for the weekend and they were happy to oblige”

Tenovus Finance Director Liz Wilson, the nominated driver for the Three Peaks team, said: “We’re delighted with the brilliant support provided by Hutchings & Thomas to ourThree Peaks Challenge team. The comfortable and well equipped mini bus was just what we needed.”

Altogether Tenovus had 14 teams competing in their annual Three Peaks Challenge. The target was to raise £47,500 for the charity through the event this year.
