Conservatory Outlet and its Premium Retail Network to Climb 24 Peaks in 24 Hours

After raising over £15,000 for charity last year by completing the National Three Peaks with just minutes to spare, Conservatory Outlet and its Network of Premium Retailers is unveiling its next fundraising effort: The 24 in 24 in ’24.
In a bid to up the stakes, figures from Conservatory Outlet and its retail partners will travel to Keswick in June from where they will attempt to scale the Lake District’s 24 peaks in just 24 hours.

Led by Conservatory Outlet CEO, Greg Kane, the group will walk over 28 miles and cover over 4,250 metres of elevation – that’s more than a marathon and equivalent to climbing Ben Nevis three times!

“After the success of last year’s fundraising efforts, we had to go even bigger,” Greg said. “This will be an incredibly tough challenge for us all. It’ll be as much of a mental challenge as a physical one but it’s something that we’re all looking forward to. We yet again have a fantastic team taking part, with participants coming from across the United Kingdom to help raise money for our charity of choice this year, Mind.”

Founded in 1946, Mind is one of the most prominent mental health charities in England and Wales. Mind offers information and advice to people with mental health problems and works tirelessly to raise public awareness and understanding of these issues, as well as campaigning to improve the nation’s mental health services.

Speaking about the decision to pick Mind as the group’s charity of choice, Greg said: “Mental health issues can affect individuals and families in so many ways. Unfortunately, research shows that one in four people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year. Mind does fantastic work and their work is incredibly important. We trust that you’ll support us in our efforts!”

The team will begin their challenge on 4 June, going in a circular route before finishing the next day after climbing Scafell Pike, Helvellyn, Haystacks, Great Gable and 20 other named peaks in the Lake District.

Greg added “I often say that our Network of Premium Retailers is like a family. Events such as this showcase how strong we are and exactly what we can achieve by working together. There’s no doubt that we’ll spur each other on and we’ll not only complete this monumental challenge but raise a fantastic amount for such a fantastic cause whilst doing so!”
