A team of housing experts from SDS has raised over £2,200 for Shooting Star Chase, the children’s hospice charity.
Over an intense, energy-sapping 24 hours Phil Shelton, CEO of Cranleigh-based SDS, led his colleagues to the top of Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Mount Snowdon after weeks of training.
They scaled Ben Nevis in three and a half hours, finding thick snow at the top, Scafell Pike in two and half hours and Snowdon in the same time.
Phil Shelton, CEO, SDS, said, “It was exhausting and exhilarating, but everyone rose to the challenge and I’m delighted we did all three mountains in 24 hours, which we couldn’t have done without a vital fifth member of the team, our colleague Paul Kristiensen who drove us everywhere.
“The expedition was in memory of my father, David, who founded SDS in 1994 and sadly died last year. He was a great supporter of Shooting Star Chase and the wonderful work it does for children with life-limiting conditions. So it’s an honour to raise this money for them.”
