Roy Gough, Health, Safety, Environmental & Quality (HSEQ) Manager at EMCOR UK, said: “The National Three Peaks Challenge was a fantastic and unforgettable experience. The completion of the three peaks saw each participant undertake a distance of 42 horizontal kilometres and over 3000 vertical metres climbing. The team had a wonderful time and we’re delighted to have raised money for an incredibly worthy cause. We, and our participating subcontractors, are based around the UK and we chose this challenge because breast cancer can affect anyone, anywhere.”
