Encore staff at the top of Ben Nevis.

Spalding firm’s mountainous effort for charity

Staff at Spalding based recruitment agency Encore Personnel have gone above and beyond, raising a whopping £9,000 for its three charities, by climbing the highest mountain in the UK, Ben Nevis.

A 17-strong team spent seven hours taking on the 1,345m climb last Saturday (August 11).

Employees of all ages took part, including Melissa Packwood (19) and the oldest Chris Hockey (53).

Encore has selected three charities to fundraise for this year – Sick Children’s Trust, Cardiac Risk in the Young and CLIC Sargent.

Chris Hockey, director at Encore said: “I am thrilled that we were able to work together as a team to raise a substantial sum of money for charity.

“Tackling a task such as Ben Nevis was undoubtedly a challenge, but we were determined to succeed for such worthy causes.Many of us found the trek tough at times, however we were all spurred on by each other’s support and motivation throughout.”

Andy Lewis, operations director added: “I am proud to see the team come together to not only take on a gruelling challenge but to raise money for such fantastic causes.

“Thanks to the dedication and fundraising efforts of our staff throughout the year, we have been able to support a number of causes close to our employees’ hearts and are well on our way to hitting our £20,000 target.”
