Hettich UK takes on Twin Peaks challenge in memory of colleague

11 June 2019

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

The team are walking in memory of their colleague Helena Grant, who passed away last year. Helena’s daughter Mel McDermott will join the group on the challenge, which will see them take on Scafell Pike in the morning of 21st June before completing the descent of Snowdon before dark. The team is hoping to raise at least £2,500 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!”
