Telent team prepare for Three Peaks challenge to raise money for Railway Children

For the second year running, Telent have formed a team to scale the highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales in aid of the Railway Children.

The Three Peaks challenge involves hiking up Snowdon in Wales, Scafell Pike in Cumbria, England, and, finally, Ben Nevis in Scotland.

In 2022, Telent raised an incredible £8,000 for Railway Children by doing the Three Peaks Challenge. This year Paul Bonnet, Dan Perry and Hannah Cutler will be taking on the challenge.

Paul Bonnet, Business Development Director, said: “I have been to a fair few Railway Children event over the years and I know about the incredible work they do across the continents and thought it would be fantastic to participate in one of their organised events.”

The group will complete the feat across three days from 15th to 17th June to, travelling by rail between the mountains which total more than 3400 metres in height.

“I’ve always wanted to do the Three Peaks challenge since seeing so many people do it when I’ve climbed the mountains previously as a child and an adult. To be able to support a charity that does incredible work whilst doing it through raising money and awareness is really humbling and will keep me motivated through the tough parts of the challenge!”, said Hannah, Business Development Support

“I’ve done a lot of charity events while being at Telent”, said Dan, Business Development Support Manager. “I’ve always wanted to do the Three Peaks challenge, so it’ll be great to get back out there again and do another one, supporting a cause that means a lot to us at the company.”

An established non-profit organisation, Railway Children has been fighting for vulnerable and homeless young people for more than 25 years. Its work includes regular direct outreach to identify underage sleepers, raising awareness in local communities and influencing increased funding and support from the government. Railway Children directly supported more than 21,000 children in India, East Africa, and the UK in 2021.
