Deco-Pak completes the Three Peaks Challenge to raise money for Greenfingers charity on the 23 – 24 July 2022. The team have since reached their fundraising target to help Greenfingers to create even more therapeutic garden spaces at children’s hospices across the country but are still accepting donations.

Deco-Pak’s Marketing Director, Craig Hall, alongside Dan Gough and Ross Baxter climbed the the three tallest mountain peaks within England, Scotland and Wales – Scarfell Pike – 978m, Ben Nevis – 1345m and Snowdon – 1085m. Their challenge was completed in under 24 hours. 23hours and 55mins to be exact, including over 11 hours driving betweenFort William to Seascale in the Lake District, before finishing at Caernafon in North Wales.

Craig Hall said: “What a way to spend 24 hours. I won’t lie, it was tough at times but we got through it and are so pleased that we were able to spread the word regarding Greenfingers along the way.

“A huge thank you to all of those that have donated so far, it really did help keep us going this weekend. We appreciate that times are tough at the moment but even the smallest donation makes a huge difference so we’re asking for a donation of just £3.24 – to mark the conquering of three mountains in 24 hours. Of course, we’ll happily accept larger donations! But know that every penny donated will make a huge difference in helping the Greenfingers charity to build gardens in children’s hospices. These spaces are so important to the children, families and staff that work and live in these hospices so being able to contribute anything to their continued development is hugely meaningful to all of us at Deco-Pak.”
