3 Peaks challenge Altrincham man

A man from Altrincham is hoping to raise over £10,000 for charity, by taking part in the 3 peaks challenge this month.

Mike Davies has been training with the rest of a 17 man team to hopefully raise money for their chosen charity BEN. The team is called Volkswagen Trampers and is made up of staff from Inchcape Volkswageon car and retailers from all over the UK, including Altrincham.

The automotive charity, BEN, gives present and past employees of the automotive industry practical, emotional and financial support.

Altrincham man, Mike Davies, will be one of the fist of 9 teams that will scale the 3 peaks, Scafell Pike, Snowdon and Ben Nevis.

“The challenge will see the team walk more than 40km, climb more 3,400 metres and travel over 550 miles between the mountains.

“I’m sure they will be few sore legs and backs afterwards, but if we hit our target fundraising total it’ll be all worth it.”

If you want to donate to this valuable and unsung cause, hen pop in to the Inchcape Volkswagen retailers on Manchester Road, Altrincham. You can also donate online through their Just Giving page and mention Volkswagen Trampers.
