On 23rd/24th May 2009, 3 teams from Thales Optronics

3 Peaks Challenge. This sees us attempting to climb Ben Nevis, Scafell
Pike and Snowdon (the highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales) within a 24
The event is in
aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care and the Glasgow teams are
seeking to collectively raise a massive £12,000. All money raised by the
Glasgow teams will be going to The Big Build project
which needs £16.1m to replace the outdated Glasgow hospice with a much needed
modern replacement providing state-of-the art care.
We have set up a JustGiving site at http://www.justgiving.com/thalesoptronics which allows you to sponsor us online. Using this method is quick, easy and secure.
Thanks for your
support in this Challenge.
