For any of you that know our Project Manager, Ellie White, you’ll know that when she’s not down at the stables with her horse, out walking the dog or supporting her beloved Leeds Rhinos, she’s also a keen hiker who spends many weekends climbing really really big hills!
It therefore came as no surprise to us all at Spinning Clock that a few weeks ago, Ellie and her aptly named team, ‘Marching on Together’, completed the gruelling Three Peak Challenge in an incredible 27 hours and 45 minutes! Tackling torrential rain, heavy winds, exhaustion and 11 hours of driving, they climbed the tallest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales – Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon, with a total ascent of 9,800 feet!They raised an amazing amount of money for their chosen charities, Help for Heroes and Cancer Research UK and we’d just like to say how proud we are of her!
We’re just waiting for her to announce her next challenge… Kilimanjaro anyone?
Update: Our talented designer Anna also created this great poster for Ellie to put in the window of her minibus as she was racing between each mountain.
