On the 1st and 2nd October a group of colleagues from Combined Operations took part in a Grand Canyon challenge. The group was led by lead Ops champion Brian Pinchbeck, and included Bill Kelly, Bhavin Lachani, Joanna Kershaw, Sean Connolly, Sandra Gibson, Lorna Elliot, Fiona O’Shea, Faye Reynolds, Robert Frank, David Mohammed, Steve Shand, Myriam Boussaid and Lucy Berryman.
The group trekked a challenging 6 mile round route, climbing a whopping 4120 feet and taking in amazing view of the UNESCO World Heritage Site.
They set themselves the ambitious target of £12 000 but have already hit almost £18 000, prompting the group to increase this to £20 000. You can still make donations on the BT MyDonate Grand Canyon 2016 page. Congratulations to all who took part and thank you from the Flying Start team.
