BMA Marketing Manager Amy Kirk and Technical Director Christian Taylor-Hamlin will be taking part in the Three Peaks Challenge this August to raise funds for the BMA’s chosen charity the Children’s Burns Trust.
The challenge will see them take on the three biggest mountains in Great Britain – Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon.
They will be scaling the 42km, in a combined climb time of no more than 24 hours, across three grueling days with the aim of raising awareness of the dangers of hot water in the home.
“We wanted to take part in a challenge that would push us physically and hopefully create a good level of sponsorship for the charity” says Amy Kirk. “The Three Peaks is a notoriously difficult test and we are hoping the industry will get behind the challenge and help us raise lots of money for the Children’s s Burns trust.”
The BMA along with the Children’s Burns Trust launched the Hot Water Burns Like Fire campaign in October at the 2014 Annual Bathroom and Kitchen Business Conference.
As part of the fundraising activities the team are offering members and affiliate members the opportunity to sponsor the team t-shirts with a variety of slots available as well as features on the teams’ finish line banner.
