Three Meetings, Three Mountains Challenge!
Our “Christmas with Added Sparkle” campaign has been launched with Meeting Needs to help raise money for the fantastic children’s charity Happy Days. The campaign will launch during the busy Christmas party booking month of September.
As part of our money raising activities I, a less than intrepid, head of marketing will be setting off across the country to take on “Three Mountains, Three Meetings, Three Days” Challenge – climbing the 3 highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales
The three peaks in question - Ben Nevis / Beinn Nibheis (1,344 m or 4,409 ft), the highest mountain in Scotland. Scafell Pike (978 m or 3,209 ft), the highest mountain in England. Snowdon / Yr Wyddfa (1,085 m or 3,560 ft), the highest mountain in Wales.
In an added twist, I am also is aiming to conduct three meetings at the peak of each mountain.
Whilst I was tempted to try the three peaks challenge in 24 hours, I felt that not only would this likely result in my physical ruin, but that the idea of experiencing each peak would be somewhat missed. Having never walked any of the peaks before* I thought it was almost a shame to rush the journey. But, that said, I did feel as if I was wimping out just a little bit and as a nod to our great industry I have decided to try and conduct a meeting at the top of each summit.
If any #eventprofs fancy being the other half of my meeting, then all they have to do is meet me there! Each meeting is scheduled for 14:00 at the summit of each mountain.
The reason why we chose to support Happy Days is because, as meetings and events professionals, we’re lucky enough to experience some great events. When I was talking to Meeting Needs, the idea of supporting a UK based charity whose mission was to provide disadvantaged children with equally great experiences really resonated with me, particularly as a major part of our fundraising efforts resolves around raising money through Christmas party enquiries.
It would be great to get the support of #eventprofs and you can do so by either donating to our just giving page here or…meeting me up on of the peaks in question!
If this has ‘piqued’ your interest please feel free to email me firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange our meeting – 3 dates available please see below
I appreciate though, this is a big ask. I hope a smaller ask is to support me by either making a corporate or a personal donation to the cause which you can do through this page - http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/RichardKadriLangford

*Ok, Ok – so that is a slight miss truth. I did try and climb Scafell once. But we went to the wrong campsite, began the climb from the wrong location, ended up on near vertical scree slope dislodging a lot of rock and boulders, got scared, got lost and ultimately failed. Yeah. So…wish me luck!
