Accountants from TWP are preparing to tax themselves by scaling the British Isles’ three highest mountains to raise funds for a local hospice charity.

The firm is taking part in the Three Peaks Challenge, where participants are required to climb Ben Nevis (4,409ft), Scafell Pike (3,209ft) and Snowdon (3,560ft) in just 24 hours, with the team starting the gruelling challenge at 5pm on 22 June and aiming to complete it by 5pm the following day.

Money raised will go to Princess Alice Hospice, in Esher, which provides free end of life care to adult patients and support to their families and friends across a large part of Surrey, South West London and Middlesex.

Organised by corporate tax manager Sarah Gardner, the rest of the TWP team will consist of managing partner Philip Munk, partner Andy Goddon and associate Paul Hawksley. They will be joined by David Carter from TWP Wealth Management, along with one of Philip Munk’s clients, Darren Jones of Stricklands Dental Fitness Centre.

In preparation for the challenge, the team has been busy training, including a practice climb up Snowdon. In addition to this, Philip Munk took the opportunity to climb 2,195ft to the summit of Lion’s Head Mountain in Cape Town, South Africa, while visiting a client there.

Commenting on the challenge, he said: “This is certainly going to be one of the toughest challenges any of us have faced, but it is going to be worth it to raise valuable funds for such a worthy cause.

“As a firm, we are committed to doing our bit for our local community which is why we are delighted to be able to support Princess Alice Hospice, which makes a real difference to the lives of so many.”

Sarah Gardner said: “This is the first time we have undertaken such a challenge as a firm, but I know that everyone is really looking forward to it – even if some of us are wondering what we have gotten ourselves into!”
