A group of Forterra employees turned mountaineers to scale Britain’s tallest mountain and raise more than £8,000 for national homelessness and hospice charity CRASH.
The 18 climbers, plus one dog, reached the summit of Ben Nevis in the Scottish Highlands on Saturday 9th September, taking some of our bricks with them as part of the challenge.
The Forterra mountaineers have to date managed to raise £4,005 for the construction industry’s homelessness charity CRASH, which Forterra is match funding to make a total of £8,010.
Area Sales Manager Luke McMillan, 25, who helped organised the expedition, said, “This was quite an adventure for us all, and everyone got a real sense of achievement reaching the summit. We’re also thrilled to have raised this considerable sum for CRASH, and would like to thank friends, family and colleagues, plus Forterra itself, for contributing towards it.”
Kate Marsh, Fundraising & Events Manager for CRASH, said; “Congratulations to everyone who took part in this amazing challenge. It is an incredible achievement. The money raised for CRASH will enable us to continue to create safe, welcoming places for people who are homeless or have life limiting illnesses.”
