Traffic Labour Supplies | 15 peaks challenge for The Lighthouse Club
On the 11th June, TLS Directors Paul Chamley and Mark Midson will be tackling the 3-day, 15 peaks challenge.
Embarking on Wales for the challenge to commence, the duo are fundraising for The Lighthouse Club, the construction industry’s official charity.
The Lighthouse Club (TLC)
The Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity is the only charity that provides emotional, physical and financial wellbeing support to construction workers and their families. It receives no public funding and relies on the generosity of those within the industry to help it continue its work. TLC has been delivering charitable support to the Construction Community since 1956.
The Lighthouse Club: 24/7 Construction Industry Helpline
Whether you’re an employer or an employee, the helpline provides the first point of contact for those who need to access a range of completely confidential support services including:
- Construction Industry Helpline App
The 24/7 helpline is complemented by a free Construction Industry Helpline App which is the ultimate self-help tool. It is aimed at those who may not feel comfortable speaking with someone or would like more information about how they can help themselves before taking the next step in seeking professional help.
- Construction Focused Wellbeing and Mental Health Training
Also offered is a variety of free construction focused training programmes ranging from hour long interactive wellbeing sessions through to the MHFA England approved Mental Health First Aider course.
The 15 Peaks Challenge
Long known as a classic challenge amongst serious mountain walkers, this extremely challenging and hugely rewarding challenge is a sustained two-day walk.
Participants climb all 15 peaks over 3000ft (910m) in Wales, including the highest – Mount Snowdon. Altogether, over 30 miles of climbing will be completed.
A mountain challenge with varied terrain involving some steep ascents and descents, long distances and little sleep just about sums up what’s in store for the tandem.
Paul Chamley, TLS Director and one half of the climbing team told us:
“Charity initiatives has always been something close to TLS’ heart, and Mark and I are looking forward to taking on what’s bound to be a tough challenge for such a great cause.
“We’re extremely grateful to all who have donated and would humbly ask anyone who is involved in our sector to contribute to the charity which cares about all of our people.”
