Peak Talent Works

 

A team from the Talent Works Northampton office will be undertaking the three peaks challenge this weekend in aid of KidsAid.

The team of four (David Duffill, Meg Thorpe, Alicia Exworthy and Bex Grove) will commence their ascent of Ben Nevis, Scotland at 6am on Saturday morning. The plan is that they will have climbed and descended the mountain and made their way to the base of Scafell Pike by 5pm that evening. Having conquered the English peak they aim to be scaling Snowdon by 2am on Sunday morning. Their 24 hour challenge should see them reach the bottom of Snowdon by 6am when they will have earned a hearty Welsh breakfast.

Bex Grove, a Lead Consultant in the Brand & Insight team leads the way in experience, having completed the three peaks challenge in 2014. Alicia Exworthy, Meg Thorpe and David Duffill admit to being less experienced, but all seem excited by the challenge.

Simon Thomas, Brand and Strategy Director will be the driver, tasked with getting the team from peak to peak and providing the jam sandwiches.

The team are raising funds for KidsAid, a Northampton based charity providing support for children and young people who have suffered abuse, bereavement, bullying and family problems. Trying to understand what these children are going through is difficult, especially when they aren’t always able to articulate their feelings, which is why KidsAid have a team of highly trained and experienced therapists.

It costs KidsAid £70 to run a therapy session and this is often paid for by the individual or organisation who has referred the child. If you’re able to help please visit the Talent Works JustGiving page
