Peak performance for Tunbridge Wells pub team
An eight-strong team from The Guinea, a popular Tunbridge Wells Smokehouse & Taproom, has completed an arduous trek to raise money for local charity Nourish.
The group, who all work at the Calverley Road pub, undertook the Three Peaks Challenge in 23 hours and 15 minutes – almost an hour less than the 24 hour limit.
Scaling Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon proved difficult – the team battled wind, disorienting fog and lots of rain to raise funds for community foodbank Nourish. The group trekked a distance of more than 24.5 miles, climbed more than 10,000 feet and drove approximately 460 miles.
The Guinea’s General Manager, Jamie Owens, said: “I couldn’t be prouder of my team – we all worked incredibly hard to walk the three peaks in challenging conditions and everyone gave it their all. It was a fantastic feeling – if a little daunting at night.
“There were some pretty tired legs and a lot of rest needed the next day, but it was absolutely worth it to raise money for such a worthy cause. We see Nourish as a cornerstone of the Tunbridge Wells community and we are proud to support them. Thank you to everyone who has donated so far.”
Their endeavour has so far raised an impressive £820 of a £1,000 target. The donation link is still open and anyone wishing to donate can do so by visiting www.uk.virginmoneygiving.com/Guinea3Peaks.
