In 2022,  7 members of the Group undertook the Action Cancer 7 Peaks Challenge – 18 miles within the Mourne Mountains in Newcastle, Co. Down, raising just over £4,300 – a fantastic achievement!

Now, in Aug and Nov 2023, we’re focusing on two main events – the 5 Peak Challenge across the UK and Ireland and the 50th Anniversary of Action Cancer event in November, where Curtis Skipp (DPS) and Kevin Davey (Pedrollo Distribution) are heading to South America to face the 7-day 58km Machu Picchu Inca Trail in Peru.

Our aim is to raise £40,000 over the next several months for Action Cancer, WaterAid & Pieta House while again creating connections through charity events.

August’s challenge is to complete each of the 5 highest peaks in the UK and Ireland – hopefully all within 48 hours.

We will be travelling in a bus starting at Carrauntoohil in Co. Kerry, Ireland, before heading North to Newcastle, Co. Down to take on Slieve Donard, then we catch the ferry in Dublin to Holyhead, Wales.

A short drive will then take us to Mount Snowdon and then we will travel up to the Lake District where we will be faced with the highest peak in England – Scafell Pike.

The final leg of the journey sees us travel north to Fortwilliam in Scotland where we will end our challenge by climbing the highest mountain in the UK and Ireland, Ben Nevis.
