The Directors of Marriott Motor Group have successfully completed the Three Peaks Challenge in aid of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice (EACH).

Paul Barnard, Ian Woodward, Steve Bridges, Robert Rolfe and Austin Seales climbed the highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales, walking a total distance of 26 miles with a total ascent of 3,000 metres.

The challenge started on Friday 11th May from Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in Scotland, then onto Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in England, then finally on Saturday 12th May finishing off with Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales.

EACH is a local charity supporting families and caring for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk.

Marriott Motor Group's aim for 2018 is to raise £11,200 for EACH as part of the Pay for a Day scheme which would fund the hospice services at The Treehouse in Ipswich and Quidenham for a day, providing 24 hours of care for families in these areas.

By successfully taking part in this challenge, the Marriott Directors have raised over £4,000 towards the Group’s annual target.
