Representatives from the SNC-Lavalin Rail & Transit team in the UK (formerly Interfleet) have raised more than £7,000 for charity by participating in the Three Peaks by Rail Challenge. The annual event is run by the Railway Children; an organisation which supports homeless children around the world.
In the Three Peaks Challenge, hikers scale the three highest mountains in Wales, England and Scotland. This route is estimated to be the equivalent of walking one-third of the way up Mount Everest. Participants in the Three Peaks by Rail Challenge travel between the mountains by train.
Two teams from SNC-Lavalin joined others from across the rail sector between 23rd and 25th June 2016. The climb started at Snowdon (1085m), before moving on to Scafell Pike (978m) and finally Ben Nevis (1135m).
The group from SNC-Lavalin consisted of employees from across the UK business: Daniel Derbyshire, Iain Dolan, Morgane Jankowski, Laura Hawksley, Richard Toone, Matt Styles, Jeremy Noble and Iain Rae.
“The Railway Children charity does fantastic work across the globe, so we’re pleased to help raise money and awareness for this cause,” said Michael Grace, Regional Director, Rail & Transit UK. “Interfleet were longstanding supporters of the Three Peaks by Rail Challenge, so we’re proud to continue this tradition under our new name.”
