Stuart Wood, Aggregates/Landfill Sales Representative based at Rugby, is taking part in the 24hr Three Peaks Challenge on 1 October.
This involves climbing the three highest mountains in the UK (Ben Nevis in Scotland - 4,409ft / Scafell Pike in Cumbria – 3,209ft / Snowdon in Wales – 3,560ft) all within 24 hours and that’s including the travelling between them which takes up 11 of the 24 hours!!
It is a grueling task which he is undertaking in aid of the St Giles Hospice who cared for his mother in her final weeks. The hospice offers specialist care in a variety of settings for patients with cancer and other serious illnesses and their catchment area covers quite a few CEMEX quarries including Willington, Hints and Berkswell.
Stu will burn approximately 7,000 calories during the climbs and he’s set himself a target of raising £500 for the hospice.
He has a JustGiving page - https://www.justgiving.com/stuart-wood-3peaks - where anyone can contribute to his fundraising if they’d like to support him and the CEMEX Foundation will match what he raises up to £200 so hopefully he will reach his target and beyond!
