A TRAINEE accountant will be attempting to climb the nation's three highest peaks in two days after he made a pact at his office Christmas party.
Luke Sinclair, 27, from Bexleyheath, made a pact with his City colleagues at The Housing and Finance Corporation (THFC) to complete the Three Peaks Challenge in a bid to raise money for Breast Cancer Campaign.
The former charity worker made sure his workmates kept their promise and also recruited five more people to the challenge on July 10. The endurance test will see the group tackle the slopes of Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in the Lake District and Mount Snowdon Wales, all in just 24 hours. This includes travelling more than 3,000 metres and hiking in the dark.
Mr Sinclair said: "I've taken part in many fundraising events for cancer in the past, but nothing as challenging as this. We're all looking forward to it though. It will be a great team exercise for us all and will be really good fun. But what makes it all worthwhile is knowing we'll be helping the Breast Cancer Campaign beat breast cancer."
The group aim to raise £6,200 for the charity and have so far managed £1,585.
