On 28th June 2019, JMW set off to conquer the Three Peaks Challenge all to raise funds for Tommy’s and Ronald McDonald House Charities UK.
The team of 15 faced the three climbs in temperatures reaching 30 degrees at one point. The Three Peaks Challenge is incredibly demanding – physically and mentally – and taking it on in these conditions is not to be underestimated.
Two members of the team unfortunately had to drop out early on after succumbing to heat stroke. However, the remaining 13 completed the challenge; several reaching the top of Mount Snowden within the 24-hour deadline and a few others missing it by just minutes.
Oliver Orton, a trainee solicitor at JMW who organised the challenge, said it was the hardest feat any of the team had ever done so they were delighted to have raised such a mammoth amount.
Team JMW’s fundraising efforts have been very successful. Money raised by the team through personal and work connections topped £5,495 which has now been match funded by JMW to take the total to £11,000 for the two charities.
We are so thankful to have the support of JMW and cannot wait to continue working together to save more babies’ lives!
