Meadow Foods Achieves Three Peaks Fundraising Goal

The team from Meadow Foods who are about to take on the Three Peaks Challenge has announced that they have already achieved their £15,000 target in less than two months of fundraising.  Despite this success, they are aiming to raise even more for their worthwhile cause.

The Meadow Foods team is raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support and has received overwhelming support from colleagues, suppliers and customers, resulting in the team reaching their £15,000 target with weeks of fundraising still to go.

The intrepid group of 24 walkers will take on the gruelling task of conquering the highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales in one intense trip on the 14th and 15th of June. The group will set off from the base of Ben Nevis (1344m) in Scotland on Friday afternoon and then head to England to climb Scafell Pike (978m) in the early hours of Saturday morning. The challenge will be accomplished once the Meadow Foods team has descended from Snowdon (1085m) in Wales on Saturday afternoon.

David Farrer, the Meadow Foods team captain comments: “We are truly overwhelmed by people’s generosity and support, the amount of donations we have received from suppliers, customers and personal donations has been incredible.”

“Macmillan Cancer Support is a charity Meadow Foods has supported for many years and we will continue to try and raise as much money as possible for this great cause.  We have all been training hard and now have several trips to Snowdon and Scafell Pike already under our belts in a variety of truly challenging British weather conditions!“
