The 21-strong team’s attempt to scale the three highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales was in aid of The Spring Centre, which provides support to the families of children with disabilities and special needs across Gloucestershire. The 24-hour dash to conquer Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon was the brainchild of Nick Gibbons, Customade Group Operations Director. His 11 year old daughter Niamh, who suffers from a genetic condition and needs 24 hour care, regularly visits The Spring Centre for essential respite care. Nick said: “This was undoubtedly the biggest challenge I have ever attempted but it was important for me to put every effort into raising as much money as possible for the Spring Centre - a place that is very important to my family.” For further information, please contact Customade’s marketing hotline on 0800 0094 203 or visit Cementing growth »»Purplex, the window industry marketing agency, has completed the purchase of a 4,500 sq ft office complex as part of its ambitious growth strategy.
