Invosys has demonstrated that they always go the extra mile – by taking a staggering 297,843 combined steps in the name of charity
While for most of us Sundays are a day of rest, a team from the Manchester-based firm were up with the larks on the 7th June to take part in the gruelling Cheshire 3-peaks Challenge, in aid of Francis House Children’s Charity.
The seven strong team hiked up the famous peaks Tegg’s Nose, Shuntlingsloe and the Shining through blustery conditions, taking in the stunning scenery and putting into practice weeks of training. They all completed the challenge in just five hours, taking 42,549 steps each.
The Manchester-based firm announced earlier in the year that they have chosen Francis House Children’s Hospice as their company charity for 2015, and employees have been taking part in many different activities to raise vital funds for this worthy cause.
Francis House Children’s Hospice is an amazing charity which provides comfort, rest and fun for children and young adults with life threatening conditions, and their families.
Stephanie Warwick from Invosys was one of the organisers of the event. She said “The Cheshire 3-Peaks Challenge was a one of the toughest things we have ever done but it was great to pull together as a team for this fantastic charity
“It’s a key part of our ethos at Invosys to give something back to the community where we live and work, and we are delighted to be working with Francis House this year”
