The PFE Three Peaks Challenge
Raised Over £14k for Local Charities
A team of 23 of our staff completed the formidable challenge of the ascent and descent of each of the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales within 24 hours. The total distance walked was 27 miles with an ascent of 9,800 feet.
Team PFE were committed to completing the challenge to raise a serious amount of money for a number of local good causes and that is exactly what they did. They aimed to raise a minimum of £2,500 for each of their four chosen charities, but they smashed their target raising over £3,500 for each.
The PFE Team Collected over
160kg of Essential Products for
our local Foodbank
As well as raising money for local charities it is always nice to give back and support the local community in other ways. We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry, so over the month of September 2022, the PFE team collected over 160kg of essential products that we were very happy to donate to our local foodbank.
Colchester foodbank is part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK. It is the busiest foodbank in Essex and the second busiest foodbank in the East of England, and couldn’t do what it does without the support of the local community. We’re glad to be just a small help for the big work they do within our community.
