Welcome to the Crabtree Property Management Limited and Moretons Property Services Limited joint fundraising page. If you have found this page, you have no doubt been directed here by a friend or colleague. Thank you, in advance, for your interest and hopefully your donation.
On the 25th of July 11 walkers, 4 support crew and two mini vans will attempt to complete the challenge which requires the walkers to climb and descend the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales in 24 hours. We are taking part in an organised event, with a number of other teams, in order to raise much needed funding for the British Red Cross. Our challenge will begin at 4.10 pm on Saturday 25th July at the bottom of Ben Nevis and will hopefully end at the bottom of Mount Snowdon on Sunday afternoon. Between Scotland and Wales we will be stopping off in the Lake District to climb the notorious Scafell Pike.

This is a tough physical challenge which requires a great deal of preparation and training for all those taking part. There is a huge amount of organisational and fundraising work required and although there are only 11 walkers and 4 support crew there are many, many others currently involved in promoting our challenge and actively fundraising.
The walkers are: Ben Hopkinson, Riaan Kruger, Tom Lewis, Magda Sztukowska, Donna Cairns, Patrick Conlon, John Ward, David Goldberg and Robert Robertson.
The support crew are: Chris Fitch, Bella Mutevelian, Elaine Thatcher, James Adamson and Chris Henman. It is the job of the support crew to get the walkers to the bottom of all three mountains in the quickest possible time (and to bring them home again) and to ensure they are properly kitted out and sustained for the three climbs.
We will attempt the challenge in two teams with representatives from both Moretons and Crabtree.
In 2008 a team from Crabtree attempted this challenge but only managed to complete two of the three mountains due to injuries. This experience combined with the enthusiasm of our newer participants will hopefully see the completion of the challenge this year. The photo opposite was taken at the top of a cloudy Ben Nevis last year, an updated 2009 team photo will appear soon.
