Dear All Steels Customers/Business Partners,
It’s only 10 days left and counting
now to AST’s Three Peaks Challenge 11-12 May 2019!
The harsh reality of what this triple mountain B2B/in 48
hours climbing challenge truly entails is now very much on our minds!
However, it’s fair to say that the AST Challenge team is as physically
fit/prepared as possible and we’re also feeling mentally strong too!
Here are a few facts about this AST event in aid of The
Prince’s Trust youth charity for those of you who are interested/following
our charity story:
1. Saturday 11 May 2019 – 7.30am climb Ben Nevis. (Highest mountain in Scotland, at an elevation of 1,345 metres above sea level).
2. Saturday 11 May 2019 – circa 7.30pm climb Scafell Pike. (Highest mountain in England, at an elevation of 978 metres above sea level).
3. Sunday 12 May 2019 – circa 5.30am climb Snowdon. (Highest mountain in Wales, at an elevation of 1,085 metres above sea level).
On Friday 10 May 2019 the AST Thirsk office will be open for
business as usual, albeit with a reduced number of AST colleagues readily
available to respond to landline directed calls, as the AST Three Peaks
Challenge members will be travelling up to the Scottish Highlands in
preparation for the first early Saturday morning Ben Nevis mountain
climb. However, it’s anticipated that the AST colleagues in transit will
still be readily available to assist you if you call during Friday on an AST
colleague’s work mobile number.
The AST Three Peaks Challenge members
will include: Adam Grant, Anna Clarkson, Jon Jacobs, Karolina Florek, Lee
White, Laurence McDougall/me, Sandra Malecka, Sarah Pritchard and Tom
McDougall. The AST Challenge members will of course all be back at AST
Thirsk/work first thing on Monday 13 May 2019 ready to tell you their mountain
climb stories blisters and all!
We would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank
all of our AST customers/business partners who have already generously made a
sponsorship support pledge. It’s great to know that by completing the
gruelling Three Peaks/Prince’s Trust Charity Challenge we will all be helping
to make a difference to the lives of young disadvantaged people.
Once again, thank you so much for the kind and generous
donations given and all your supportive words of encouragement. It’s very
much appreciated especially by the AST Three Peaks Challenge members/The
Prince’s Trust. We will let you know in due course, with picture evidence
included, just how quickly and successfully we completed the mission! If
you haven’t already made a sponsorship donation and you would like to do so
