Hettich UK takes on Twin Peaks challenge in memory of colleague

11 June 2019

An 11-strong team from Salford-based company Hettich UK took on the challenge of climbing England and Wales’ highest peaks within a day to raise funds for Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund.

The team were walking in memory of their colleague Helena Grant, who passed away last year. Helena’s daughter Mel McDermott also joined the group on the challenge, which will saw them take on Scafell Pike in the morning of 21st June in 4 hours and 45 minutes, before completing the descent of Snowdon in 5 hours and 50 minutes. The team has already raised more than £3,500 for the charity.

“Helena was our receptionist and a beloved colleague to us all,” said Hettich UK Midlands area sales manager Matt Fowler. “She was with Hettich UK for 23 years and suffered with pancreatic cancer for some time.

“We decided on the Twin Peaks to raise money for Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund. It's a challenge which suits a diverse group of people and hopefully will be seen as a worthwhile activity to encourage people to give generously!”
