Fletcher and four others tackled the UK’s Three Peak Challenge where they took on the gruelling challenge of hiking Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike, and Mount Snowden over one weekend. The activity managed to raise over £2,000 for MS Society and SSAFA.

The group also welcomed the return of their annual Golf Day at Wrekin Golf Club in Telford, which was organised by Operations Director, Andy Lewis.

18 teams made their way around the golf course. Andy was joined by clients, suppliers, charity volunteers and other team members. The event raised over £3,000 for Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis.
