How many people can say they actually like their accountants? Just mention the word ‘accountants’ and most people’s blood pressure rises.

I (Andy Coldron, charity Co-founder) know from my own experience that T&C are different and when I spotted on their website the opening line was ‘Dare to do more’… well they pretty much had no choice but to accept my offer to take up the ‘Clip n Climb Ben Nevis’ challenge.

The CHS group have supported us in the past by taking part in a supermarket collection. They’re now taking it one step further by taking to the walls to climb Ben Nevis!

Domino Printing Sciences

We met Charlie from Domino Printing Sciences at a charity event and he was compelled to help. Charlie has recruited his colleagues and they are determined to win!


It didn’t take much persuasion to get the guys at RxCelerate involved in our 2020 challenge! They’ve stepped up to the plate and might even get a second team on board!
