Taylor Wimpey España reaches new heights as they tackle the 14 Peak Charity Challenge

This month will see the return of Taylor Wimpey’s annual Charity Challenge as employees from across the UK and Spain take part in a weekend filled with testing trekking.

This year two teams from Taylor Wimpey España will participate in the Tizzie Wizzie Challenge set in the beautiful Lake District.

Legend has it that a Tizzie Wizzie is a shy mini-monster, said to live on the shores of Lake Windermere, with the body of a hedgehog, tail of a squirrel and the wings of a bee. Although the teams aren’t guaranteed a sighting, they will compete in an inter-BU ‘It’s a knockout’ which will include activities such as zorb football, Segway racing and monster volleyball.

After a detailed safety briefing the teams will set off the following morning on their 14 Peak Challenge, with a target time of just 10 hours!

All teams are required to fundraise a minimum amount in order to take part and once again the two teams representing  Taylor Wimpey España have chosen to support the Youth Adventure Trust. The charity helps vulnerable and disadvantaged young people to gain the skills, confidence and courage needed in order to face the challenges in their daily lives.

Established in 1992 by David Hempleman-Adams and Major Richard Mitchell, both well known for their record breaking Arctic, Antarctic and mountain climbing expeditions, the Youth Adventure Trust provides young people with the opportunity to start the ‘believe – achieve’ process and make the most of their lives.

With the main event this weekend, the Taylor Wimpey España teams have raised almost €5,300! And this figure is set to rise before the challenge’s conclusion.

“The Taylor Wimpey Challenge has become a key event on the company calendar with many employees looking forward to the opportunity to participate. This year we were delighted to have two teams representing the Spanish division of the company.

“As well as being able to develop essential team building skills, the challenge gives Taylor Wimpey employees the opportunity to give something back to the community. We wish them all the very best on the trek and are extremely proud of our Taylor Wimpey España team’s involvement.”
