Eden Scott's Ben Nevis Challenge 2014 for TRFS
Putting their energy and endurance to the test, twenty one employees from Scottish recruitment business Eden Scott are embarking on an epic climb of Britain's highest peak to raise money for The Richmond Fellowship Scotland.
The staff of Eden Scott have always undertaken a range of charitable activites, however this is their first countrywide challenge. Climbing Ben Nevis was originally an idea for a team-building challenge but they quickly decided that they would like to do this for a good cause.
Each of the participants were invited to put forward a charity of their choice and Nicolle Sinclair from the Edinburgh office put forward The Richmond Fellowship Scotland as her young cousin is supported by us. Although all of the nominations were worthy causes, The Richmond Fellowship Scotland became the charity of choice on this occasion. We are obviously grateful for their support!
Ben Nevis stands at 1,352m and the team are undertaking a rigorous and gruelling training programme before tackling the mighty mountain on 31st May 2014. You can follow the team’s progress on the Eden Scott blog which you can visit by clicking here: http://www.edenscott.com/blog
