SmegUK readies for the Three Peaks

On Friday 16 June, a team from SmegUK will be taking on the Three Peaks Challenge within 24 hours.

Raising donations for Special Effects, the motivated team have been training hard to ensure they are fully prepared and ready to complete the challenge within the time limit.

The team will be taking on the three highest peaks in Scotland, Wales and England: Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike, and Snowdon. With a total driving distance of 462 miles, and a walking distance of 37km, all within 24 hours, the team are ready to take on their toughest challenge yet.

Special Effects helps to transform the lives of physically disabled people globally through the use of innovative video game technology. At the heart of its global work, the charity’s mission is to maximise the quality of life and fun of those they support.

The charity is finding incredible solutions to allow gamers with physical challenges to play to the best of their abilities. Their dedicated commitment and mission of inclusion provides life-transforming work. These solutions help to bring families and friends together, and so it is deeply important to SmegUK to donate and contribute towards the work of Special Effects.

As a company, SmegUK is continuously looking for ways to contribute and raise funds for charities. Last year, SmegUK took part in the Race to the Stones where the determined team walked 100km over two days to raise donations for Action Medical.

Alongside pub quizzes and monthly coffee mornings, SmegUK also continuously donates to Oxfordshire Minds, a mental health charity, to support its ongoing work for those who need advice and support.

Matthew James, product manager, commented: “After completing Race to the Stones last year, I am looking forward to taking on our next challenge for another worthy cause with a great team. After learning more about Special Effects, I realised the social challenges that can come from a physical disability. This charity provides amazing opportunities to reconnect and take back control for themselves. I am looking forward to participating in this challenge and supporting the incredible charity.”
