Black Mountain Challenge – March 2019
After being inspired by Blesma’s input at our Disability Conference in December, the Business Change and Readiness Team took on the Black Mountain Challenge raising £1,149! Here’s a photo of them at the top of the mountain. “We made it! What an incredible experience, there were some tough climbs at the beginning, but it was a glorious day. I can’t recommend doing something like this enough, if you are able to. Such great team spirit and wonderful bonding time. And we raised £1,149 for Blesma! Couldn’t be prouder of the team, they absolutely smashed it! Gemma
