FreshGround raises £1,970 for GOSH

Anthony | August 1, 2022

They did! FreshGround has conquered the second peak of the year, with Head of Sales, Scott Barnes, and his two sons completing the ascent of Ben Nevis. After an early morning start, they reached the peak at around 9.30am, with a total climb time of around 5 hours and 40 minutes.

Not only did they achieve an incredible physical feat, but they absolutely smashed the funding target for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity. With an original goal of £500, they raised an amazing £1,970 for the worthy cause. Great work guys!

Ben Nevis boasts some spectacular scenery on the way up the mountain. Check out this selection of photos Scott snapped on the way up:

With this and Claire’s climb of Scafell Pike in March, that’s two peaks down, and just Snowdon left to go! We’ll be tackling it later in the year, so keep an eye out for more details to follow soon. Who will make the climb?
