HEROIC HIKE: Rickmansworth business takes on mountain climbing challenge for charity

 Published on: 28th June 2022   |   By: Bryn Holmes   |   Category: Uncategorized

A Rickmansworth data solutions company took on the National Three Peaks Challenge to raise money for two charities.

Sagacity, which was founded in the town more than 15 years ago, sent forward a group of 12 to complete the arduous trek.

This team consisted of Ben Hodge, Charlotte O’Connor, Costas Christoforou, James Spencer, Johnny Rice (who plays for Chorleywood Cricket Club) Michael Paul, Owen Chesney, Raj Saimbhi, Walter Ramos, Jamie Crouch, Michael O’Neil and David Mattock.

The National Three Peaks Challenge is tackled in three stages over approximately 24 hours, with participants climbing the three highest peaks in England, Scotland and Wales, Scafell Pike, Ben Nevis and Mount Snowden respectively. All in all, it’s a total ascent of 3,064 metres, or 23 miles.

The team are raising money for Children with Cancer and for local learning disability employment Mission EmployAble, who will be using the funds to help construct the Chorleywood Cricket Club’s new pavilion, where they will run the café.

Ben Hodge of Sagacity said: “Our expedition began on 24 June, and we completed the challenge in the early hours of 25 June.

“We’re all looking forward to getting stuck in and raising as much as we can for two fantastic charities.”
