Employees from Elaborate Communications, the leading maritime PR and publishing specialists, have scaled three of Britain’s highest mountains in less than 24 hours in aid of The Sailors’ Society charity.
Managing Director, Sean Moloney, together with PR Account Manager Phil Page and Sales Executive Gemma Mills, successfully completed the renowned ‘Three Peaks Challenge’ by climbing Ben Nevis, Helvellyn and Snowdon.
The 24 hour trek was held in order to raise funds to help rebuild houses after Typhoon Haiyan, which struck the Philippines in November 2013 and took the lives of around 20, 000 people.
Speaking soon after the team’s decent from the final mountain, Snowdon, Mr Moloney said: “After six months of hard training, we and 26 other teams from the maritime industry have come together to support and raise money for the world-renowned work The Sailors’ Society carries out in support of seafarers.
“As the rain beat down half way through in the middle of the night, the vistas at the summit bathed in glorious sunshine made each climb worthwhile. I would like to thank everyone who has supported us, from the cake and jewellery sales Gemma organised to the individual donations and good wishes we have received. ”
