As part of our “Christmas with Added Sparkle” campaign which has been launched with Meeting Needs to help raise money for the fantastic children’s charity Happy Days.

Richard Kadri-Langford our less than intrepid head of marketing, set off across country to take on “Three Mountains, Three Meetings, Three Days” Challenge – climbing the 3 highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales. 

Richard Kadri-Langford our less than intrepid head of marketing, set off across country to take on “Three Mountains, Three Meetings, Three Days” Challenge – climbing the 3 highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales. 

The last time Richard attempted to climb a mountain (Scafell) they went to the wrong campsite, began the climb from the wrong location, ended up on a near vertical scree slope dislodging a lot of rock and boulders, got scared, got lost and ultimately failed.

So whilst we all wished Richard, Ben and Sam good luck there was a small part of us that thought Richard would once again fail - 3rd time lucky maybe?!?!

Alas, he proved us wrong! 3 mountains defeated, 3 meetings completed and 3 knackered men!! Well done guys!! 

 

 

"The guys put in a monumental effort for an amazing Meetings Needs charity,” commented Jennifer Jenkins, Chair of Meeting Needs. “This is a brilliant initiative pulled together by event professionals that really care. We couldn't be more grateful - and genuinely astounded! - by their efforts. A real thank you from everyone at Meeting Needs." 

“We've had the most amazing support from the industry already for the campaign. The Three Peak Meeting Challenge has raised just short of £1,000, all of which will go to a very fitting charity,” commented Richard Kadri-Langford. “We're really proud of how far we've come already, and equally proud to support Happy Days and Meetings Needs. The rest of the campaign kicks off today and is well on course to reach its £2,500 target.”

 

Even though the challenge has been completed donations are still being accepted to help reach the campaign target of £2,500. If this has 'piqued' your interest and you would like to make a donations please visit - http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/RichardKadriLangford

 

Along with all the amazing views the guys got to see on their travels, they also divulged into some celebrity spotting - Kate Garraway!

*Okay maybe a slight mis-truth! Turns out #eventprofs aren't that keen to climb mountains over 1000ft for a meeting!
