National Accident Helpline raise funds for BIRT

On July 14th, 'We Peaked Too Early', an intrepid team of 10 people from National Accident Helpline and sister company PPI Claimline took on the 3 Peaks Challenge - an arduous climb not for the faint hearted - enduring freezing temperatures.

 They put on their walking boots to climb Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in the Lake District and Snowdon in Wales over Saturday evening and Sunday to raise money for the company charity, BIRT (Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust). Through the generosity of colleagues, friends, family and some of NAH's business partners they managed to raise a staggering £8,600 and counting!

 Adam Rhodes, team member and Commercial Director at National Accident Helpline, said: "We are proud to be supporting such a worthy cause and helping to raise the awareness of the fantastic work they do at BIRT. At National Accident Helpline, we are committed in helping patients and their families across the country who are in need of the care and support the charity provides.

 "Climbing the three peaks with the 'We Peaked Too Early' team (most of us novices) was an amazing experience, and a great demonstration of the value of teamwork.  When we eventually completed our descent of Snowdon, around 11pm on day two, we celebrated with a glass of champers and reflected proudly on what we'd achieved - 18 hours of climbing, 13 hours of travelling and overcoming many obstacles, including a broken down minibus!"

In addition to the 3 Peaks Challenge, Staff at National Accident Helpline have already taken part in a host of fundraising activities over the last eight months, including a mini Olympics day, a series of raffle sales and a Salsa themed summer party, bringing the grand total of money raised to just over £10,000 for BIRT so far this year. Lynn Turley, Director of BIRT commented:

'We are absolutely delighted that NAH has done so much for us. The dedication of all those involved with the 3 peaks challenge and all the fundraising activities throughout the year, has been phenomenal and we are very grateful for the money raised, which will go towards helping us provide added special trips and events for our service users and also will help with producing our information leaflets for people with brain injuries.'
