25th July 2016
MSI's Manchester law member Myerson and its team of 58 staff completed the National Three Peaks Challenge to raise money for St Ann’s Hospice and Trafford Deaf Children’s Society.
Over the course of the weekend (2 & 3rd July 2016), the Myerson team conquered Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon in what is described as one of the UK’s toughest challenges.
The challenge began with Scotland’s Ben Nevis (the UK’s highest peak) in the early hours of Saturday morning and despite encountering snow towards the peak, the team completed Ben Nevis in just over 7 hours. The team then travelled down to their hotel in the Lake District, where they were able to get some rest ahead of their climb up Scafell Pike at 4.00am on Sunday morning – they completed Scafell Pike in around 6 hours and 30 minutes. With aching muscles from the first two mountains, the team were back on the coach and on their way to Wales for the final part of the challenge. The team started their climb up Snowdon at 6.30pm on Sunday evening in conditions that were much more welcoming than Ben Nevis – with blue skies allowing for clear views across Snowdonia National Park. The team were also treated to a rare sight – a ‘broken spectre’ as they reached the summit. With the sun going down and the challenge completed, the team made their descent back down the mountain before beginning their journey back to Altrincham.
On completion, the Myerson team walked a total distance of 25.6 miles and climbed a total height of 2,932 metres in less than 48 hours.
The reason Myerson chose to raise money for St Ann’s Hospice and Trafford Deaf Children’s Society is because both charities provide support to the local community with little or no government funding and therefore rely heavily on donations. There are also various members of staff at Myerson who have personal connections to the two charities. This is Myerson’s way of saying “thank you” for all that they do.
Thanks to the generosity of staff, friends, family, clients and contacts of Myerson, over £14,500 has already been raised. All of the donation money will be split 50/50 between the two charities As a co-sponsor, Myerson were also able to raise funds for their challenge at the recent Boodles Tennis at The Mere event, which took place at The Mere Golf Resort & Spa (15th to 17th June). Over the course of the event an impressive £7,000 was raised. Donation cheques were presented to representatives from Myerson and St Ann’s Hospice by ex-tennis legends, Henri Leconte, Thomas Enqvist, Mikael Pernfors and Xavier Mallise.
