YORK, ENGLAND, June 24, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Superbreak, the UK-based tour operator, has announced its staff's biggest challenge yet in aid of the Help for Heroes charity, as they attempt the infamous Three Peaks Challenge.
On the 17th July, 14 staff members from Superbreak will start their gruelling climb as they attempt the National Three Peaks Challenge. The gruelling climb will see the group start at the bottom of Snowdon in Wales, before taking a 4 hour drive to scale the heights of the Scafell Pike in the heart of Cumbria. Both climbs are expected to take the group over 5 hours and the journey doesn't end there. On the 18th July, Superbreak staff will take on the National Three Peaks' highest mountain - Ben Nevis.
Founded in October 2007, Help for Heroes offers practical support and help to wounded servicemen and women from Afghanistan and Iraq on their return to the UK. The charity's message is clear and simple: to help ordinary people doing extraordinary things to live with the consequences of being wounded in the service of their country. The money raised goes towards projects such as funding the new swimming pool and gym complex at DRMC Headley Court to help wounded servicemen and women rehabilitate.
The tour operator reports that colleagues from their York based office have joined forces to help raise money for the charity, including members of their Groups, Online Marketing, Web Content, Hotel Contracting and Reservations departments. Over the past year, Superbreak have also supported a number of other charities including The Family Holiday Association, Sport Relief, St.Leonards Hospice in York and Look Good Feel Better
Group co-ordinator of the Three Peaks Challenge at Superbreak, Michelle Bruce, said: "We wanted to do something not just for a good cause, but a great cause and what better way to do it than to choose a great charity like Help for Heroes and set ourselves one of the biggest physical challenges of our lives to date. The target is to raise GBP5000".
