Ben Nevis Challenge

As part of Courier Logistics 20th anniversary celebrations the Directors and Staff have committed, not one, but two teams to complete this years “Ben Nevis Challenge” which takes place on the 7 June 2014 . The challenge involves scaling Ben Nevis, a 25 mile cycle ride and canoeing 3km around Loch Lochy, yes all in one day!

The teams are made up of Directors and Staff from Courier Logistics and all are training hard to be
fit for the day! It is hoped that sponsorship for the teams will raise much needed funds for ‘The Children’s Hospital Charity’. The Children’s Hospital Charity are working to raise £10m towards the expansion of The
Children’s Hospital (Sheffield) through their make it better campaign, you can read more by clicking here.
