Columbus UK take part in customer Charity Challenge

A four man team from the UK this weekend took part in a Charity Challenge Hosted by our Customer Samworths Brothers!

In ten years, teams have approximately trekked 15,900km, cycled 42,100km and raised a massive £1.5 million. The efforts over the years have benefited many charities - local and nationwide - and this was no different! 

On a rainy Saturday (pictured), the event started early at 7am. Our team took part in the 'tough' challenge which included three hours of mountain biking, then after a half an hour break, a further three hours of trekking and to top it off another three hours of canoeing! 

The team did a fantastic job and finished 10th out of 53 teams, raising money for Maggies Centres Charities.
