Wealth management company takes on Highland challenge
15th September 2010
TEN staff from Yorkshire-based wealth management business Pearson Jones are taking on the Highland Endurance Race in Scotland this weekend to raise funds for a national youth charity.
The Leeds-based team has so far raised £5,000 through sponsorship for the 24 hour challenge, which will see them start out from Inverness on the East coast and travel by bicycle, foot and kayak for 100km across the Great Glen before crossing Ben Nevis at 5,000 ft and finishing at Fort William.
All funds raised will go to The Mitchemp Trust, a youth development charity working with vulnerable children to help them learn the importance of team work, communication and social skills.
Tim Johnson, managing director of Pearson Jones, said: “This is a truly massive challenge but we are all raring to go so we can raise money for such a worthwhile cause.”
